Hi all. I've still been here lurking, trying to gather information for my friend who has been recently diagnosed with CH's.
First of all, I have absolutely LOVED all of the pictures from the convention...now I can put alot of faces with the names (and my knees are still weak from the pictures of Jonny & DJ-ha)...
But here's my question. I'm a non-smoker and from everything I've read, smoking generally is a factor in CH...but why are so many smoking in the pictures? PLEASE don't take offense to this, I'm not preaching on the subject and in fact, I smoked when I was younger, I'm just trying to paint a clearer picture for my friend who is struggling to live with the pain she's in.
Does smoking make things worse? Does it help you to cope? Help...I want to give her accurate information and now I'm confused.
Again...please don't take offense...I care about all of you.
