  • I was a long time smoker and I quit each time I was pregnant. I always went back to smoking though. Finally, before getting pregnant for the 3rd time I had quit for ME! I had decided I didn't want to anymore and I haven't started back up!

  • My hubby, we both smoked and he got sick with some chest cold and couldn't stand to smoke. He told me we needed to quit before we got married lol. I knew je wasn't serious, but I did it anyway. I sneaked cigarettes here and there (maybe like 2 a month) and then I got pregnant and I stopped completely.

  • The guilt of knowing i was pregnant & it could affect my baby. That said it still took me until I was 6 months along to give them up completely. I still crave them now & again.

  • I quit for good 6 weeks ago. I was just tired of not being able to breathe, always stinking, and spending ridiculous amounts of money on them.

  • how i did it (mentally) was telling myself i was stronger than those cigs..i would say "if i go and smoke..then i'm a really weak person and i have no will power"..i didnt like thinking that.
