well i dont have any experience with smoking ingeneral, but i'd say just stop. throw out all your cigarettes. you're gonna get really pissed off and want to smoke again, but it'll be worth it. or you could try the patch or gum. i'm only fifteen, so i dont really know how to help, but my dad smokes, and i know i'd give anything for him to stop.

My father s pancreas has shut down, and he was told that especially with his diabetes, that his kidneys are soon to follow. I was looking online the other day and found some sort of implant that can be put in now, that has helped 50% of those who tried it, from developing full kidney failure, but now I can not find the name of the implant so that we can talk to his doctor about it. Can anyone tell me the name of this? It was like 3 or 4 letters long...

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
