I quit smoking... and yes yes i know... iyts a little late. however, since my doc thinks i am safe enough to avoid my body aborting due to withdrawls he said go ahead and try...

so... this is it.. three days into it..

I didnt get much support from my DDC, well most of them were actually.. a couple werent...

so i am posting here as well.. i figure all the GOOD support i can get is best..

i have gotten over the panic part and now im actually doing better... i can feel that my breathing is better just after a few days. its amazing.

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.

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.

You rock!

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.

You go girl!!

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!!

Good luck to you!! You can do it!

Thats great that you quit It's better late than never, right??

I quit when I found out I was pg.. I haven't smoked since I got my bfp. It has been incredibly hard, but so worth it!! I won't lie, at times I want a cigarette sooo bad. But I don't cave
