Im feeling so discouraged and just cant take being sick. Is it possible to get sick back to back? Im not going back to smoking, i guess this is my punishment for waiting so long to quit. I swear i dont get more than a few good days inbetween all my problems this whole pregnancy. And the hormones just make me wana cry... Ugh!
I tried everything to quit smoking and finally did at 22 weeks. im now 26w3d and its so nice to say i quit. I tried everything to quit and i guess after my ultrasound it hit me that i really needed to try n quit once n fer all not just fer a day or two. I ended up quiting cold turkey and asked for my husbands help. He smokes. I wouldnt have any lighters cigs or money to buy em around the house and picked up a new habit. Going on walks....im here fer u if u need someone to talk to. Thatll help.
I quit smoking the day after i found out too. I was a smoker for 5 years until september when i found out i having a baby. To me its all in the mind, and you have to be strong and know that you dont need it , its bad for you and your baby. My husband helped me get thru it , my baby my family is too important to me than a cigarette. Just remind yourself that your strong , you dont need it, its all in the mind. Whats in the heart is what matters.
I have tried to quit numerous times however when I do I get stressed and get headaches almost like I'm sick. Can this put my baby uder stress? I simply just don't have the willpower to quit.  Is there any pregnancy-safe medication to help quit smoking???

Plus, you've probably seen on tv where someone tries smoking for the first time and it makes them sick to their stomach- perhaps you are sensitive to it, like some are to medication. You can get help from your doctor to quit the smoking- it is risky anyway (can often lead to cancer, compromised lungs, etc), and it will save you money to boot!
I'll be 26wks Friday and I have a big problem smoking cigarettes. I actually quit my entire 1st trimester. And then I started craving them...and now it physically makes me sick not to have one. I wanna quit so bad!!!
I have a few friends who didn't care to even try to quit. I quit three years ago and it was hard. It took me a year to fully quit. Good luck and God bless!
I still haven't been able to quit yet. Got the pills, but was afraid to take them. Had heard they could cause Neurological issues. So, I decided to try them out on the hubby 1st. (that wasn't very nice, I know) Didn't tell him what I had read. After a few weeks in, he started saying to me that he kept forgetting stuff, was cutting things all backward, etc (he's a carpenter). I said, OMG, that happens to me all the time! LOL....
I'm sure someone is gonna get mad for my comment but I'm so sick of people saying they can't quit. If you honestly wanted to quit you could, smoking is really a mental habit. Ill be honest that if I wasn't pregnant I wouldn't have quit, I loved smoking. I'm not gonna start again after I have my baby I've already came so far so why start again. I know this doesn't help your post I just had to let this out.
If your wondering why there can be such problems an on nurse explained to me that smoking causes the placenta to harden such as your lungs will if your a smoker and it can cause your baby to not get enough oxygen and nourishment no matter how much you eat or try to be healthy otherwise. Personally I'm not a smoker but my sister in law is and luckily she got 4 healthy babies but I wonder if her smoking has caused them to be sick more frequently, seems like every couple weeks they are sick.
now that ive quit the oc's i seem to be smoking alot more.....replacing one habit with another i guess.....i quit oc's c/t maybe i could quit smoking c/t lets see what could i replace smoking with? lol....thats seems to be my problem.......

How do you encourage a person to quit smoking that has been smoking since the age of 16?

Smoking doesnt make you a bad mom...however it would ve better to quit. Just find the easiest way for u..i smoked like 16 years and when i found i was pregnant i stoped in a week and now im not smoking for 6 months..its nice ..its a big motivation as u feel that u have given the best u can for the baby and if something happenss it wont be ur faullt...it some kind of releive and it worked for me...
I'm trying to get my dad and the baby's father to quit smoking so I have less of an urge to go smoke. Ive tried everything to quit nothing works for me. My mom smoked the entire time with me and I turned out pretty good I was sick a lot and have allergies...every women and pregnancy is different and baby. Cut down a lot is what you should do.
So happy to see you had a nice day with your daughter and didn't smoke. Yes, whyquit.com does advocate c/t, but so what. Lots of people need an aid to quit smoking and that's okay. Which ever way you choose to quit is the right way for you. You did great today. Just take it one day at a time and one minute if you have to. Post as much as you need to.
I am not a counselor but I think seeing someone about this to LET OUT THE STRESS THAT IS CAUSING YOU TO BUY THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE is a good idea. Maybe if you get this stress verbalized instead of bringing it in to your body (in the form of smoking), you can conquer this problem. Now, also, (not to be harsh but I have to say this), do you really think you are fooling people? Anyone who doesn't smoke themselves can smell someone who has smoked a mile away.
I am having a hell of a time trying to quit smoking. Heres the thing, I quit smoking eleven years ago along with all of the street drugs I did. I smoked cigarettes for 15 years, and when I went through detox and rehab I started again. I feel like I want to quit, but after all I went through giving up my opiates, this is the strange part, I don't want to let go of the cigarettes. I am wondering if my addicted brain is somehow trying to keep any kind of addiction going on.
Get the book " the easyway to quit smoking" by Allen Carr! Its a great book! I'm about 100 pages in& just know I'll be done smoking by the time I finish the book!
Iv heard a lot of negativity about nicorette.
However, you have to make a choice - keep smoking and hurt my baby or quit and give the baby the best chance possible that he/she deserves... its really that simple... good luck!
I'm not saying that. obviously its not good but its her decision to do what she wants. hearing everyone's experiences help. I'm sick of people downing people because they don't quit when the only know what "studies" say they don't know what real people have to say. smoking is completely up to what you want to do and yes there are risks but not to all. if you ask most doctors they will tell you what percent of children actually are affected.
It was easy for me to stop, because here I was, lying in bed gasping for breath. I was sick of being sick. I do smoke a little here and there, I just bum off my hubby. I smoke when I'm upset. Better than picking up pills, I say. My husband is having a very hard time with the cigs, even with today's crazy prices, so I understand how you feel because I see his struggle. He can quit for a couple of days then he caves in.
I didn't find out I was pregnant till I was 6 weeks and smoked up until that time my cousin smoked her whole pregnancy and her babies were healthy I was lucky enough to get sick when I smelled smoke or I wouldn't have been able to quit good luck I know its hard
>how did you get this disease? I got it from smoking, smoking sucks!!
It is was it is, in all it's ugliness.......people who smoke and some that have quit will get sick. Thats a fact, like it or not. What you can do is exactly what you are doing now....quit and hope with a healthy lifestyle that you will be one of those to escape the consequences. I went to the doctor a few weeks back and found that I had COPD. Okay, 40 years of smoking and I had to expect that I wouldn't come away unscathed.
ok off i go to keep myself moving, it helps to do SOMETHING rather than sit!! im getting my hair done in a bit and i have no idea what to do!! ok im off like a prom dress!!
