  • Get an electric cigarette. This helped my friend out SO MUCH when she got preggers! There is no smoke, you're just inhaling nicotine water vapor. They're super cool & i plan on getting one for my DH to help him quit.

  • You should make one post and ask all of your questions in one, since they are all the same or very closely related.... and when I was pregnant I just quit because thats what my body told me to do... I would throw up at the smell of smoke.

  • if you are pregnant and you end up having morning sickness, the smell alone will make you quit. the smell sent me running to the bathroom and that was enough for me to quit in the beginning. with my first, though, it didnt bother me so i would cut down how much i smoked per day, then smoke half cigarettes, til eventually i needed none. it only took about a month.

  • I know many women who smoked packs a day and quit cold turkey when they got pregnant. Chew some gum, get some suckers, and stop smoking

  • my doc said to allow myself 10 the first day and take one away each day. it kinda worked. i got stuck at 2 a day. but it might work for oyu.

  • The only time you should just cut back instead of quitting is if you smoke a pack a day or more. otherwise just the guilt worked for me. It was still hard though but worth it, good luck

    These are a safer alternative...just get the oil without nicotine.
