Hi myname is lauren im fron the Teen pregnancy board...WEll i am 15 weeks pg today and I still have yet to quit smoking...I've cut back alot but...its not good enough...I guess where my problem is is that I like smoking so the motivation to quit doesnt seem like its there yet on the other hand my baby is more important to me than smoking. I used to smoke 30 regular cigarettes a day and I am down to 10-15 Ultra lights....I know ultra lights are no better than regular cigarettes but im just trying to wean myself before i just try and quit cold turkey. any advice??? It would be greatly appreciated!!

Hun I am so glad you came here.. (((Hugs))) for taking the first step!

Number one, I think your weaning process is a great first step! before quitting cold turkey i cut down a HUGE amount so it doesnt seem like im going from PACKS no nothing. KWIM?

For instance since i have set october 1st as my quit date as the rest of us... I have cut down even more from my 5 a day. its not 7 pm and I have had 1... and that was first thing in the morning. So you are on the right track.

Second , it is very hard to quit unless you really want to. My suggestion would be to watch some videos. Go to your local library and see if they have anything on smoking and what it can do to you and your baby. maybe even research on the net! What you find may turn you off of it. I have noticed since my pregnancy has ended ciggarettes taste different to me now, and not in a good way. Its definatly helping the quitting! I will also search for some articles. Maybe i can find some motivation for you!

Another peice... Start replacing it with a new habit.. maybe each day, cut one more out! instead... buy a pack of gum. Maybe you go through the whole thing each day, but when you want a Cig, pop in a peice!...

I hope you can get through this.. and btw.. We have started a Quit club of sorts.. come and join with us, we will help each other out!
