    I can't believe with what we know about cigarette smoke, that anyone could subject their unborn child to it then act like its no big deal. Baffles me.

    I fell pregnant young i cut down instantly.. but didnt quit until i was about 6 months along (it was one of the hardest things i have done.) Once my LO was born i was filled with soo much guilt. I didnt realise how important and how much you would care about this little human. He is now 7 and to this day i still feel horrible and in fault when he gets sick. I never restated though.

    this.

    along with drinking and drug use, smoking whilst carrying and growing a baby just seems so incongruent with what your body is trying to do.

    you're basically simultaneously creating life whilst abusing your body with known toxins.

    and this is coming from a big former party girl. I won't even have a small glass of wine now I'm pregnant. why would you want to put your little bub at any risk at all?

    I quit when i fell preg with dd 5 years ago. during the last 5 years i have quit and started up nurmerous time, I have fallen preg a further 4 times and have quit each time but sadly misscarried . I quit back in march this year but lately have been struggling and falling back into bad habits. After each misscarriage I get very depressed and stressed and find myself starting again. I really hate myself for it. I've always gone cold turkey but think i need some help this time to quit for good.

    I lost a baby back in June and stared smoking after 5 years with out them again in July. It's hard.

    Never. I hate smoking. I stayed away from smoke as much as possible through both of my pregnancies.
    My mum smoked while pregnant with me. I was born early, had jaundice and had to be in special care. I still to this day get every cold/flu going around, my immune system has always been bad since the day i was born. I also had juvenile arthritis and still suffer from arthritis now.
    Don't tell me it doesn't harm babies.
    I don't hold it against my mum, they didn't know any better back then.
    But in this day and age i cannot understand how people do it.
    I know it's an addiction but you are responsible for a helpless tiny human. Priorities people.
    Ps. Abuse me if you must, this is my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

    I have never smoked in my entire life i think it's a filthy habit and i would never do anything to jeopardize my pregnancy. Although i do understand everyone is different and if you have been smoking for many years before you become pregnant it can make it all the more difficult to quit when you are pregnant.

    The person who said they wish it was illegal to smoke at all - you want to pay the taxes that we would be short on that we get from cigarette sales? Not me. Let them kill themselves. It's their choice.

    What an awful thing to say. A close friend is currently losing their mother due to lung cancer and I'd hate to think anyone else battling it or family/friends etc would read this insensitive post and be extremely upset by it.
