Smoking Cigarettes - December 12th 2018, 08:22 PM

When I was 14 I started smoking cigarettes and tried to stop many times for a few years and finally when I found out I was pregnant I have stopped and haven't picked up a cigarette and really haven't even had a thought to. It is just in my head that my babies health comes first over my health and I am not going to do it. I just wonder if I am going to stay this way once I have the baby or I am all of the sudden going to have the urge to smoke again once my baby is born? Has anyone gone through this before. I really want to stop for good, but I am afraid I am going to go back to it once I have my baby.

Well done for giving up cigarettes!

I haven't been in your situation and I don't know if you will get urges to smoke once your baby has been born. It's a possibility worth planning for though so you might want to consider talking to health professionals.

Even if you do get urges to start smoking when the baby has arrived, you still have the choice whether to pick up a cigarette or not. If it helps, you can always remind yourself of the dangers of passive smoking (more information on this can be found here) to help you remember why you gave up smoking (for your baby's health) and to keep you from smoking again.

The one thing is my mom will never let me smoke in the house and I will never smoke around the baby if I do choose to pick back up the nasty habit. I also have the option of a lesser evil I suppose in vaping if I do get the urge and if that helps. Thank You for the link.

It is great that you decided to stop during your pregnancy. I have never smoked before so I don't know how hard it is to stop, but I have heard it is really addicting so it has to be hard. Just remember once you have the baby they can still be exposed to the second hand smoke if you do get the urge to pick it back up again. Good Luck.

Well done!

I smoke myself, and I'm trying to smoke less.

I hope you decide to stay away from smoking. I have a few friends who are smokers and are trying to quit and they say it is hell to quit. I tell them as I have never been a smoker all I can do is lend moral support and I will do the same for you as well. So if you ever need to chat please feel free to message me. Also try to occupy yourself with other things especially your hands.
