I quit when I found out I was pregnant. Picked it up after I had her, maybe a year after. Then I thought to myself, Why would I want to go back to this disgusting, smelly, cancer causing, life ending crap! I want to be around to see my dd grow up & have the energy to do things w/ her not be dying of cancer & having to go thru chemo & radiation & worry about all the things I'm going to miss out on. My dd is why I quit & why I stay an ex smoker. Whenever I think of smoking I imagine blowing the smoke out directly into her face. That image is enough to get me to never pick one up. I smoked a pack to a pack & 1/2 a day for 10 years, the day I found out I was pregnant I put em in the trash.
