    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,

    For all who stumble upon this thread, I can feel the pain of trying to quit (and yes, quitting smoking will probably solve all the problems with high blood pressure), and felt completely overwhelmed, frustrated and alone in the process...the tipping point for me was knowing that I was in control of my life, and more importantly, that I had people I loved and that there are proven, scientific methods that have successfully helped millions to quit, and that if they can, I certainly can as well.

    I hope that you'll reach out to the members of the community who can and are more than willing to help you with your affliction - do NOT try and fight this on your own...you'll end up with emotional distraught, upset and overwhelming frustration as you try but might not succeed without support.

    Don't be afraid...you're truly not alone.
