    I would right now. I’m a medi user in agony as cant get my medication, i couldn’t even begin to tell you what spinal pain feels like, see if you break your arm or leg its excruciating pain, but after a while when the broken limb in question has been mended the pain goes away. Ive broke my spine in three places in 1997 spines dont mend so have to live with that pain on a daily basis for the rest of my life in wich will not be to long the way im feeling right now. I did so much work for the L.C.A but they have let me down bit like my so called friends. So yes my friend i would kill for a smoke……. obviously not in the above context. peace and thoughts my friend……..Lee
