Hiya and welcome!

I know just what you mean, get sick from smoking and they will pay the astronomical price to get you well, but help you form getting ill at a relatively low cost to them, and they won't cover it!
It's infuriating, but rest assured the money you spend to quiet smoking will be the best money you could spend on your health.
Congrats on your efforts, please check in with us, let us know how you are doing!
Good luck!!
