  • I quit smoking the day I found out i was preggers (4mo along) and I had the fear that as soon as the baby came out I would be feaning for a cig... but that didnt happen.. Sometimes I do get the chest tightening but I let it pass....
    Everyone in my family smokes & alot of friends smokes dh quit when dd was 4mo, but damn how did i afford it! Even when it was $3 a pack!
    Ive been smoke free for 3yrs (april 2006-2009)

  • I did after my first child. Turns out smoking is an anti depressant. That held true for me. If you enjoy smoking, if you "need" to smoke due to stress, or if your friends and family smoke it's hard to quit. I quit again when I got pregnant with my second baby.
