  • my step daughter did this twice and never understood it. But then again I have know people who quit for decades and went back to the almighty smoke, those things are evil and you can't tell me they don't have addicting chemicals in them

  • I quit smoking when me and DH decided to try getting pregnant...I sneaked every once in awhile during the year it took me to actually get pregnant and then quit completely once I seen those 2 pink lines lol.....I don't have any intention of going back to smoking but I can't honestly say that it won't happen...I've been smoking off and on since I was 13 yrs old....it's an addiction that I will probably struggle with for the rest of my life

  • I did with both of my pregnancies. Ugh. I didn't start back immediately, but within a few months after giving birth each time, I was back at it, sneaking around in the driveway...I quit for what I hope is the FINAL time a few years ago!

  • i quit just before midway through my pregnancy. working at a grocery store makes it harder to quit (seriously, everyone smokes there). i think she was less than five days when i started back. i've promised myself that i'll have quit by the time i'm 25

  • the day i got a positive i told dh i was pregnant, i was super stressed (unplanned) & tried to smoke, but i felt pure guilt & didnt finish it. that night i went to smoke & again.. GUILT.. Never smoked again & that was over 4yrs ago.

    My family (smokers) all said "as soon as u deliver your going to beg to go outside for a smoke"..
    Never happened. I cant stand the smell now. :)
