Do you ever feel guilty for smoking?

I smoke 1 cigarette a night-- that's it. When I was pregnant, obvs. I quit cold turkey and did so very easily but when I was on maternity leave, I was sooo stressed with the baby that I started again. I only smoke 1 a day after the baby is asleep, (never, ever around her) but I still feel kinda guilty about it. Does anyone else feel guilty?

  • I only smoke when I'm at work, my friend and I will take smoke breaks together. I do feel guilty occasionally because I know my son would throw a fit if he knew I smoked. We plan on quitting together though so hopefully we can stick to it!

  • :30 why should she have to? Some people have an occasional beer or whatever, op, I don't think you should feel too guilty about one a day.

  • Yeah, that's the thing.aiquinn! I never feel guity enoguh to quit b/c I smoke soo little. Occasionally I'll have 2 in one day, but that's pretty rare. And I never smoke during the day, only at night (weird, I know, but it's like a ritual now).

  • I didn't. Do you think that people feel guilty for having a drink at night? What is the difference? Don't give me people die from smoking. People die from alcohol related illnesses too.
