If you smoke in the same car, room, etc then I think that is awful. I would probably not go as far as to say a bad mom, but it is definately cutting it close. If you are going outside or somewhere away from the kids where they do not have to breathe it in and destroy there bodies, then I see no problem with it (other than the fat that it is stinky and disgusting and unheathy of course lol.) An adult has a choice, but a kid does not.

Im not a smoker. I think if you are exposing your kids to second hand smoke and its a risk to thier health, then thats a poor parenting choice. However there are a million other harmfull vices that can cause mental or physical damage. just because we make some poor choices though, doesnt mean we are "bad" parents. Are your kids feel loved, secure, safe and have thier basic needs met? Can they look back at thier childhood and smile despite some poor choices along the way? Thats more of an indication of if you are a bad parent or not. Imo :)
