    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?

    combo smoking helps not really

    I also have been using Chantix and patches I can make it 3 days before my stomach gets sick bad and the patches make my arms weak. So the longest I can stay cig. free is 3 days I need more help please. I have also bought more than my fair share of e-cigs also and they don't work they are messy and need charging all the time and do have a tendency to burn up so you must be sure not to over charge them keep an eye on them please.

    Do you have a spiritual or faith-base? After about 20 years and countless attempts to stop - the longest, using the patch, for about 7 months - I finally did what I should have done first: I prayed. I've been smoke-free for 5 years and, as of August 1, 8 months. It can be done! Best wishes for your success -
