Quitting Smoking

Cheryl-Lynn - February 23

I just found out yesterday that I'm pregnant and I had been smoking half a pack of cigs a day for 10 years. But from the moment I found out I was pregnant I haven't pick up one. I know it's only been 29 hours, however I just want other people to know that you can quit with just will power. Everytime I want a smoke I think of the little baby growing inside of me, depending on me. So, I take a few deep breaths and a big glass of water instead of a smoke. Then I go and look in the mirror and tell myself "I can do this". I thought I was just share my story.

I do was a light smoker. The minute a hpt showed I was pregnant I quit. I was probably only 2 weeks pg too. I have no cravings for one either. Especially now that I feel sick most of the time! My boyfriend quit too so that helped. I can't stand the smell of second hand smoke right now either.

Good for you for finding the will to quit, you can do it! My friend was a heavy smoker and it was an odd thing, even before she knew for sure she was pregnant, cigs started tasting so bad to her, which had never happened before... I wonder if there is some type of mechanism in some people's pregnant body that tells you to put the cig down....or maybe it is because your senses are heightened...hmm. Anyway, good luck to you!

I can believe they would taste bad. Seems like half the stuff I eat tastes funny. I also always have this funny taste in my mouth since I became pg. The thought of a cigarette makes me just gag. The smell is bad too.

I also was a smoker, quite the smoker at that. I quit the minute I found out that I was pregnant also. Congrats ladies on your pregnancy and for having the will power to stop!! :o)
