I have been trying to quit smoking for about 4 months now. Tried, but not working. I can go about a maximum of 4 hours without a smoke. Everyone around me smokes and I smell it all the time. When I go without one, I am like the devil reincarnated lol. Any tips to quit. I even tried meds and guilt with the baby. I have smoked for about 13 years (since i was nine) and I dont want to harm my baby any more  HELP PLEASE

until the withdrawl is done with you will probably be the biggest witch in the world but i think you need to let it get out of your system so you can concentrate on not starting again.   Do you like to chew gum or eat carrot/celery sticks?   I know of some people who when they felt stressed or bored they woudl pull out paper and write or draw until the craving passed.   Also walking with baby may be a good option so that you are moving and arent near any cigarettes.   I havent ever smoked so i am not sure exactly what you are going through but i am sure it is very tough and one day your son will be proud of you for quitting.
