Suggest you continue to use your P72 until you are ready to take the plunge. All cameras takes great pictures and you can learn with any camera. A camera is a camera. The "advance" tools will only comes into play when you outlive the one that you are using.
I find it difficult to ask people to go back into film with the current advancement of digital cameras.
You can also consider a slightly more advance consumer camera that gives some kind of control or manual mode and you can learn tons from there. Not necessary to get a SLR or DSLR if your budgets does not permit.
Remember when you buy a SLR or DSLR you are not just buying the camera, you are buying a system.
