>The theory is that smoking stimulates dopamine

While I was doing my 'homework' on the patch last night, I read at several different websites that the nicotine patch is being tested (quite successfully it seems) as a potential aid in reducing the symptoms of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's Diseases. Also read that smokers are less likely to suffer early onset of Parkinson's.

I stupidly mentioned to my college-age daughter (who is vehemently anti-smoking) that maybe this was one bright side to smoking. Her response was "Swell, Mom! I'm sure you'll enjoy all your mental faculties when you're slowly dying of lung cancer!" And a child shall lead them...?
