Hi from Dr Foulds.....what works?
Jonathan Foulds, PhD posted:
Hi, this is my first post on WebMD. I've been asked to help out on the Smoking Cessation Community by answering questions and pointing out key new developments in smoking cessation. From what I have read so far the WebMD Smoking Cessation Community is already a very vibrant forum with people helping each other based on their own experience. It is excellent. I hope that can continue and that I can throw in my 2 cents worth every so often. There is often a lull in new quits in December as smokers plan to quit at the beginning of January. So I expect we will have many new people visiting the site to get tips that may help them succeed in the new year. I would love to hear from people who have succeeded in quitting in the past twelve months. What helped you succeed and what is your best advice for smokers about to try?

Hello doctor Foulds, It is wonderful to see your are opening this forums. I am smoke free almost 11 years now. Thank you to group therapy,(for 6 mths) , medicines, and social behavior therapy to learn many healthy options to replace my urge to smoke. I discovered through all these support that there are many wonderful things besides cigarrets that give you more satisfaction. I did need a lot of focus to understand and to stay on course and not to give up on myself. Besides, my health is great, better than 10 yrs ago. It is a very well worth effort. Not easy, but possible. Good luck with the groups. I appreciate your effort and knowledge.
