hello there.

regarding your smoking issue- smoking will only worsen your situation in the long run. you won't have proper glycemic control due to smoking. additionally, smoking is a big risk factor for a lot of cardiac problems. diabetics are more prone to become hypertensive, smoking will just increase the risk and make you more prone.

regarding diabetes treatment - currently, there is nothing called complete cure. so you just need to take medicines.

hope this helps.
regards
