I'm pregnant & can't quit smoking

I feel so terrible but I don't even have the desire to quit! Unfortunately it seems to help my nausea so I feel slightly better after I have one. I'm still smoking 10+ cigs a day. I'm almost 12 weeks & have actually known I am pregnant for almost 2 months. I can't blame my dh 100% for my inability to quit but he's still smoking & kind of has a "eh, whatever, my mom smoked with me" attitude. He says he'll quit but isn't making any effort.
I've been trying hypnosis and it does not seem to be making any difference. I will not be telling my doc either as I'm hoping to just f***ing grow up & stop! Any advice or whatever you got is appreciated.

I have cerebral palsy because I had a stroke in utero because my mom smoked when she was pregnant with me.....Something to think about. Tell him to stop with you for the health of your unborn. That should be important enough.

Its hard to quit if you still enjoy smoking. I had that problem when I was prego. Have you thought of maybe the electronic cigarettes, i dont know much about them but i know theyre supposed to be healthier, idk about pregnant though, and ive heard they help in quitting. Maybe you could look it up?

If you are going to smoke you need to at least tell your dr, plus he may give you advice for quitting. maybe try cutting back a little each wk.

 I know you dont want to, but you should say something to your dr, for your babies health. He/She will most likely be able to help. Dont put your own pride before your baby!

I agree. Your doctor shouldn't make you feel uncomfortable and it's way more common then you think. He should be able to help you stop
