So I found out I am pregnant (about 5 weeks) and I am a smoker. I plan to quit, but I know how I feel when I feel when I go through withdraws, and I also know that how I feel is how the baby feels when it comes to such substances being put into your body. So I am wondering is it better for the fetus if I quit cold turkey, or is it better if I wean myself off?
The reason I ask your opinion is because when I smoke I become extremely stressed, irritated, shakey, etc. The baby obviously feels this way too and I also know that too much stress and anxiety can cause miscarriages. So what do you think is better??

The Dr told me to wean myself off gradually, less stress on me and the baby. He said quiting cold turkey is a shock to your body and the baby and that's not good.
