SOPHE is the sole distributor of the SCRIPT Program. My primary goal here is sharing my experiences and all the information I discover about eCigarettes on my blog, but the most important step all smokers need to commit to before trying out these new eCig products, is to quit smoking regular cigs. I've been obtaining the most helpful suggestions from articles that I've come across on the interwebs so that I can post them here for you before I get into all the fun new vapor cigarette products. I hope you find this information useful and thanks a bunch for reading!Visit the SOPHE Online Store to order the Guide and Video.Call
