Are there any Wal*Mart shoppers who aren't smokers?

Tobacco requires a cashier and space that could be used for another two customer checkouts. If someone wants tobacco, they can get it from the Murphy at the edge of the lot.

There is also the cost for tracking inventory for state tobacco regulators.  The profit margin isn't their anymore.  (Unlike booze).

Then there is underage sales proems

As if they would even dream about staffing more checkouts!

Problem solved.

Hang in there!  It sucks, and it will suck for a while, but the payoff is worth it.  After a while it won't suck so much, and then a little less each day.  I quit 5 years ago after sucking Philip Morris dick for 30 years, and I LOVED smoking. Pulling for you.

I can hear that 50 yr old wrinkled lady now, who looks 70, biatching about it at the checkout with her 30 yr, 2-pack a day, raspy Pall Mall voice.

Yeah, to pile on - it DOESN'T suck forever, in fact that part goes away relatively quickly. You just have to get there, and never look back longingly on smoking. Once you are free, you are free.
You got this.

When I quit, I cut some drinking straws into cig lengths. Helped to have a few of those around to get over the fix window at certain times of the day. Cocktail straws work.
Now I'm addicted to nicotine pouches. Trying to cut those back.

Four weeks? You're kicking some ass. I smoked for over 20 years and used Bupropion to help me kick the habit. Haven't had a cigarette in over five years. Gotta have the desire to quit in your heart, though, and seems like you do. Never go back to day one.

You got this.

Godspeed to you!

Mistakes I made along the journey to no nicotine:
- Saying "I haven't smoked in months!  I can have a few while drinking and I won't start again."  I was wrong.  Did this several times.
- I started using snus.  Worst mistake ever.  Twice as hard to stop as smoking.  And I freaking loved smoking.

The thing that got me off that damn snuff pouches was the coffee pouches.  They were awesome.
