Quitting smoking & drinking..expensive

If I could go back in time, I never wouldíve smoked. Nicotine cravings are more intense than alcohol cravings. I got nicotine gum and am starting today.

I hate smelling like cigarettes, incoming skin dryness and wrinkles, hiding my smoking to appear ladylike, gum discoloration that can happen when you smoke for years, having to smoke when drinking, plus now they are super expensive! $11 for a pack. That is crazy.

Smoking is a cancerous luxury.

Quitting this too is long overdue. I hope I can do it using the gum. I started smoking and drinking at the same age. It would a wonderful gift to leave them behind in 2023. Iím nervous as nicotine cravings are fierce and super strong. Thereís nothing like it.

Iíll think of the money I save as motivation and getting into better shape. I am scared of the strong cravings though. Big respect for people who quit smoking completely.

Iíve been to Australia. Itís amazing! but youíd go bankrupt smoking there. I learned people buy cheaper cigarettes abroad before returning. Sad I didnít get to stay longer or move there. Your society is much better than Americaís.
