How do you get someone to quit smoking while pregnant? My friend and his girlfriend is pregnant. In the beginning, she said that she is going to smoke less until she can stop. We all knew that that would never happen, but we still hoped for the best. Now, at 6 months pregnant, she still smoke like she used to and she listens to nobody. We all showed her the dangerous of smoking while pregnant, and EVERYONE told her to stop, but she just doesn't care. I know there is probably nothing I can do, but I cannot even look at her while she sits there, smoking with a baby on the way. Any advice?
My cousins did the same thing while they were pregnant and it used to piss me off. Lucky for them, they delivered healthy babies with no issues but it's sad that they didn't care either way. I quit cold turkey as soon as I got my BFP. It was easy for me because I know I'm not just harming myself anymore.
But I think you're right, there isn't much you can do about it. People like that never listen to reason. You can simply stop going around her while she's still smoking. Chances are she's not going to quit after baby is born too, which puts baby at even further risk. It's a sad situation for the innocent baby.
She doesn't have to quit that's up to her you can't make her that's just going to piss her off. I stopped smoking through my 1st and 2nd tri,i started smoking again during my 3rd tri until birth. I imagine you're not a smoker because it's not easy as "just quitting" if you're that dependent on nicotine and you suddenly stop while pregnant you can possibly be putting your baby at risk for a MS due to the stress.
