    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.

    I have been smoking since I was 9 and I am now 43. I just had a double bypass surgery 2 weeks ago. I have been trying to quit for over a year. My problem is that because of my heart I can't not use the patch and the gum and lozengers make me sick. The pills make me crazy, I am bipolar and suffer from depression. I really want to quit but for me it is like saying good bye to a friend and that is hard. But I want to live so I have to give them up.
