    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I do not smoke, lost both parents to lung cancer due to their smoking. I was very young, and have never smoked. All anyone can ask is that you do the best you can in life.

    Get treated for the depression and other problems, smoking is one to put on the list, but just do your best and don't worry what anyone else says.

    Take care, Annette

    I too smoke..... Since not working I smoke more. That really sucks too. I understand the depression and the need to smoke. I discussed quiting with three of my professional caregivers and they all tell me the same thing. "right now is not a good time to quit". They recommend getting things stable before attempting to quit.

    Take care, Annette
