Hello, I am a 49 year old female. One week ago I had a mild heart attack and ended up with a stent placement. Was home for 1 1/2 days and returned to the hospital with a 2nd heart attack and 2 more stents. I have smoked for over 30 years. How do I make it through the cravings. Doctor gave me prescription for Chantix but insurance won't cover it and its $180.00. Any advise would be helpful. I want to live!
