Oral fixation is the way to go- I smoked because I liked the feeling of something between my lips, and something in my hands. I am gonna say something your not supposed to say though, and I am sure I'll receive shit for it later, but one thing people forget is its not just the babies health you have to worry about, its your mental health as well. You just got off medication, and if your afraid being off that medication, and not smoking will effect your work life, social life, marriage, or the other children you may or may not have, sometimes its better to just CUT BACK, and not actually quit. I would rather see a pregnant woman/teacher maintain her mental health and smoke occasionally, than see her go off the wall, and cause problems for her at home, or work. JMO.
