Smoking that is.  :)  I smoked since I was 9 (yes, that says nine) until I got pg with my first in 2007, then I picked it up again last summer when dh was in the hospital with DKA.  I've been telling myself I need to quit since we started ttc in January, and I finally did it!  Today is day 4 with no nicotine and I feel great.  Bonus, I got dh to quit with me too.  :)  Just had to share, I'm so proud of us for actually doing it!

I stopped 2 months before I got pregnant with my son. I have an occational one, mostly when I hang out with my friend who smokes but I dont smoke all the time anymore. I have to get my husband to quit though he still smokes.

Thank you!  Yes, I think my kids will probably benefit most.  We never smoked in the house, but I do know all the damaging effects even third hand smoke can have.  So I'm looking forward to everyone being healthier!

Congratulations to you for quitting!  I know the hardest times for me will be when I go out with my friends who smoke when they drink.  Sometimes the pressure to smoke socially can be really tough to say no to!

You're not a bitch at all.  lol  I got dh to quit by refusing to buy more cigarettes and telling him if he didn't quit he could go live in the garage until he decided not to smoke anymore.  And I was serious.  :)
