Congratulations!!!!!! It is not east giving up the ciggies. I quit on Feburary 6th, also gave up alcohol and caffine that day. It was the day I found out I was pregnant. I have gotten to the stage that I can not stand the smell of ciggarette smoke and have no plans to take it up again.
After a week you'll notice so much of a difference in your breathing, after two weeks you're skin will start looking better. The first two weeks are the hardest, it is smooth sailing from there.
aw hon congrats! im sorry you arent getting the support from other places you were looking for. i quit smoking too when i found out i was pregnant. it is very very hard. dont worry. its better now than never. just keep at it. you can do it!! if I can do it i know you def. can too!!!!!
Congrats! It is so hard. I quit when we decided to TTC, but it wasn't cold turkey by any means. You should feel proud of yourself. Also think about your baby whenever you want a cigarette, it may help to steer you away.
Congratulations - it is a hard thing to do - but your baby and health is worth it. I smoked too well into the first few months of my first pregnacy - and when I went into pre-term labor at 6 months - I gave it up. It scared me so bad that I don't remember the withdrawals. It's been 10 years and haven't picked another one of those things up again. ((((hugs)))) and wishing you a smooth process.
I quit smoking about a week after I found out I was PG! It was tough, but if you just take it craving by craving it's so much easier. Every time you want one, just will yourself through that craving and before you know it, it'll be long gone!!
Oh, I found a cool website that keeps me motivated too...it's called quitmeter.com. You can put in the day you quit, how many you smoked a day and how much a pack costs. Then it will keep track of how long, how many you haven't smoked and how much money you've saved...a portion of it is in my siggie...the whole thing wouldn't fit...it's a HUGE motivator though. I love to see the numbers increase everyday!!
