I just removed a specific brand name medication from a post. Posts on our board should not discuss specific brand name drugs for we do not want people coming in endorsing any products nor do we want other members coming in offering advice and insights about benefits or potential problems with a given medication. All discussions involving medications should be between you and your physician and pharmacist.

I'm sorry, but I had to remove a post asking for advice on dieting. If you check the following rule, it is not allowed on Freedom's boards. As Joel has previously written:
Freedom though is a smoking cessation site, not a weight control site. If people are interested in weight control support groups there are plenty of them on the Internet, although it is probably best to talk with your doctor have your doctor refer you to a nutritionist for dietary counseling if you are considering any major dietary changes after quitting smoking.

Our only position on weight control is that it is possible to quit smoking and to stay smoke free even if you pursue other lifestyle changes--weight control efforts being one of them. To stay smoke free even when watching your weight is as easy as sticking to your commitment to never take another puff!
