In our country, the tax(actually excise) is just phenomenal and raised twice a year by a fixed percentage.

A decade ago, 20 smokes would cost you about $10 or $11. These days, a cheaper, nastier pack of 20 costs about $24. At the same time, Chemist Warehouse has nicotine containing chewy, available in 4mg pellets, 200 of them for 30 bucks.

There's a way to stay human and avoid turning into Witchy-Poo (what a fun find!) every time the levels of the neurotransmitter impostor drop low enough.

Continuing to consume nicotine is good if you're interested in holding off Parkinson's or Alzeimher's. Smoking it might mean you don't last long enough for the positive effects in staving off degradation of the Substantia nigra to matter.
