Hey UD:

My favourite saying..."Whatever gets you through the night". I would never, ever tell somebody that
whatever belief or treatment works for them (unless it caused self harm, or harm of others) was/is "wrong". Yes, we were joshing around a bit, and maybe xA is something I may not quite recommend, or utilize myself. But, man, if it works for you, I absolutely wish you all the power in the world.
You may also feel similar about all of my crazy pharmaceutical 'adventures'..lol.

So, honestly, no disrespect meant. :)

Jay
