Dear James,

I liked your post very much.  You showed some very interesting

It is my understanding that you should take the Melatonin just before
bedtime when it is dark and not during the day.  What would be the
consequences of taking Melatonin during the day?  Melatonin is a hormone
but Nicotine is not.   Melatonin may have a similar effect as nicotine
but to use it during the day could throw the interplay of the body's
hormones off balance.  What doctor would recommend to a smoker to take
Melatonin during the day to break the habit?  I can see taking DHEA
during the morning and day because that's when the body produces it.  
Although compelling, would you seriously recommend to a broad base of
people to take Melatonin during the day?  I see that you have already
started to take it during the day along with your DHEA.  What dosage are
you taking?  Your increase in awareness and activity may only be due to
the DHEA.  Keep us posted on your results, although I am in no way
encouraging you to continue to do this.
