Many thanks for this information for at the end of the day we 'sinners' 
who were in the 'in group' when growing up by smoking are going through 
hell but few want to help us. My daughter is the supreme witch of the 
inquisition condemning me. No one warned me that I would loose hair. No 
one told me how to not gain weight. No one told me how to prevent 
getting drugged by Dr. Psycho who bleed money out of me until my husband 
blew the whistle.
Thank you Kiri, especially, because without your hugs and those of my 
spouse I think I would go crazy.
