Tobacco stains on fingers?

Hey all. I've developed really bad tobacco stains on my middle finger (right hand ) and my index nail beside it. I smoke but they are disgusting and I wanted to know how can you remove the stain from flesh? I've tried bleach but it didn't work. It makes me wanna throw up every time I see them. I have fair skin and it shows up even worse. I apologize if this is the wrong forum to post this in but I would love to know how to rid them.
Quitting smoking is out of the question at the minute due to circumstances in my life.

Bleach? Did you not just use soap first?

When you're holding a cigarette make sure the palm of your hand faces the floor with the tip of the cigarette facing the ceiling. This stops the smoke staining your hands.

+1 on smoker's toothpaste. Also try cif cream or lemon juice.

Baking Soda & hand lotion mixed together should remove the stains.

Cut your fingers off. Then you won't be able to smoke either so you won't get cancer. Its a win win situation.

Actually that makes sense I tend to hold the cig upright but my palm faces up.. Yes. The stains are really bad I am embarrassed to expose my hands in public.
Thanks for the advice

The last thing I need is your negative attitude! I know some people are offended by smokers at present and it's not like I am not aware of the health consequences.
If you have no positive input don't comment and go about your business GOT IT?

Hydroflouric acid my friend. Make sure you put it in a polyethylene container though and not in a cast iron bath tub because that can get very messy.

Seriously, start vaping.
Most of the benefits, none of the death (that we know of, but it's definitely far better than smoking).

As for your current problem, if you still want to smoke, hold it differently.
I smoked for a decade (rollies, and without filters for eight years of that decade) and never had a stain formation.
Am confused by the amount of people I know with the stains.
