Smokers On Hiatus

Just wondering how many people who smoked before their pregnancy think they will smoke again once the baby's born. I have not had one in 6 months, but I do think of them occasionally. You'd think that after all this time the urge would go away!! For those of you who don't want to start up again, how do you plan on avoiding the urge?

I'm with you. I have sneaked a few hear or there but for the most part been smoke free. I don't want to go back smoking and I plan on b___stfeeding so that should keep me from going back a little longer. Its hard, my husband smokes and his entire family and I really miss it every now and then.

isn't it wierd that we can quit for our babies but not for ourselves?

I really respect you guys for doing that and give you credit. It must be very hard but sooo worth it. :)

Actually, for me, it has not been hard to resist at all. That's the scary part. I could never quit before (although I have to admit I didn't try very hard), but now it's easy. Although I know when I go back to having drinks with my friends occasionally, I'll have a hard time resisting the allure of the smokey. I hope I can do it!

I'm the same way, I haven't smoked one cigarette since I found out I was pregnant. I haven't really had any cravings for months, but its really starting to get to me now. I hate to say it but I think I'm going to start again.

I quit smoking three years ago. Obviously well before I got preggo BUT I just wanted to say that it has only been about a year that the urge has gone away. So two years smoke free and I still had urges. Even now I would smoke in a second if I could but I have very good willpower. I don't want to smoke therefore I don't let myself!

I occasionally sneak a smoke behind hubby's back, but as soon as I do I feel sick and regret it. The baby will be born in Feb and really it's cold in canada in feb so I don't see myself going outside for smokes. I will not smoke around the baby or let anyone else smoke in our house so that should help me along. The biggest test will be when I have a few bubblies with the ladies after all is said and done.

I found, that during the whole morning sickness phase in my first trimester... it made me extremely sick, even to smell it. SO it wasnt that bad, to just quit, i'm sure attributed to some emotional issues. My b/f smokes tho, and ... i will admit over the last month I have smoked some, but far less than usual.

I know for sure I won't smoke ever again. Have been smoke free for over 8 months now. I just think about how it makes you look OLD, and your sking looks GROSS AND LEATHERY. So that pretty much curbed my urges.
