Anyone Coming From the US Soon?

Hi all.

I normally don't smoke, but every time I go out partying/drinking, I end up smoking and end up with a sore throat the next morning.

I was wondering if there is anyone coming from the US that could bring me some nicotine patches. You can get them any Walmart.

All the pharmacies here are out. Apparently, none of them can order more.

Strange, but for any of you who have lived in MX, you know these things sometimes happen.

I can give you money when you arrive. I live downtown, so I can meet you quite easily.

Thanks

P.S. I can send you the money via PayPal or just pay you when you get here. Also, for any techie person, I can send you either Bitcoin or Ethereum as payment.

I have seen nicotine patches in Merida - no nicotine gum, though

Thanks for the reply, Roni.

They usually have them here, too. For some reason they cannot get more. I've asked every single one of the pharmacy chains that normally carry them, and they've all told me the same nonsense.

Unfortunately, Merida is quite a long way to travel from Playa, so it would
probably be easiest if someone was coming here.

Sounds like you have a great opportunity to rid yourself of a habit. The patches, that is. Just a thought...

They may not have them here any longer. It has been a couple of years since I have used any. I preferred the gum, so I had that muled down until I quit.
