I never had a chance to post my opinion on the now deleted thread (which I started) about Chrissie Swan smoking during her pregnancy. Can I just say that I am struggling with Chrissie being painted as some sort of victim.
I'm angry because I gave up for both my pregnancies, it was so hard and every day I craved and craved...but I did not give in because I could not. So I know how hard it is to stop smoking and stay stopped - but Chrissie continued to make a choice every time she put a cigarette in her mouth and lit it up. I can't even comprehend the fact that she smoked in her car.....the very same car her other two children would travel in!!!!
What she did was wrong, but the constant explaining and excuse making by her and others - almost seems to condone her behaviour.
I know my opinion will not be popular and yes I have read the recently posted thread by a journalist from The Age newspaper....but I'm angry.
