    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,

    I'm new to this cite, I've quit smoking for almost 2 months now. I'm 37 and have smoked since I was 18. Last 10 yrs. or so I've been a pack a day smoker. I have gained about 20 pounds, can't remember anything, crave SWEETS ALL THE TIME, and have heartburn that is driving me CRAZY!

    My ? - Shouldn't these symptons be going away by now? I can handle all these symptons....just happier not smoking, but the heartburn is KILLING me! Any ideas why it's so bad?
