  • If you don't know if you should stop smoking or drinking, then it seems as if you may be too young to even be smoking or drinking in the first place. Sorry if it sounds rude, but just IMO. But yes, you should. It can have devastating effects on the Health of your unborn child (lung development, etc...)

  • If you are considering conception you should refrain.
    If you think you are then you should consider stopping asap.

    For the health and safety of the baby, avoiding these things is important.

  • Drinking can cause Fetal Alcohol Syndrome which involves facial abnormalities and baby will be mentally retarded.

    Smoking increases the risk of miscarriage and stillbirth, maternal smoking also increases the risk of baby dying of SIDS soon after birth.

    Those are the most obvious ones. Some other dangers and risks are also involved in both drinking and smoking during pregnancy, but that's some for starters.
