I quit smoking cigarettes, smoking pot and drinking (well, I never drank much, but I smoked pot every day) on the day I found out I was expecting.

I had one cigarette since, on a night when I had a huge fight with the father. I'm not proud of it, but for some reason I don't feel guilty about it. It's just something that happened.

It wasn't hard to quit at first because the excitement of the pregnancy was overwhelming. Now it's getting harder.

Why can't we just have one night off? One night to drink and smoke and let loose.. Then go back to being pregnant.

Well, that's just wishful thinking. Sometimes I have cravings, and I satisfy them with coffee. That's not really good either. But I just feel like I need *something* - something addictive, some kind of drug.

At the end of the day, though, I know that this baby was such a blessing because I hated smoking cigarettes. I only smoked about 2-3 per day, but still I would wake up in the morning feeling like I was gonna die. My throat hurt and I had a very unsexy cough. I love you baby - you saved me!

I applaud you for letting go of all of this for your child. You have my support fully, and I hope that you get through this easier then I did!

Thank you to Vicki.. For my amazing Siggy
