I am 55 years old , my parents both smoked , my mom smoked when she was pregnant .there were no warnings about second hand smoke . I have tried to quit and failed . I was born addicted to nicotine .

I don't have an endless supply of of money for a law suit . and I don't want billions of dollars .

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you are having health problems related to tobacco, you can hire a local tobacco suit attorney, they work on a contingency fee basis meaning you pay them out of the money they get for you. You would need medical reports relating your medical conditions to your use of tobacco products and you can find a local product liability attorney who handles tobacco cases at the same sites used by other attorneys, http://www.hg.org or http://www.lexmundi.com
