After I found out I was preg with my first I was able to stop, but this one is way harder!! I smoked in the car and vaped at work now no cigarettes(the taste is awful) and vape now in the car instead and I have been trying to remember to leave it in the car so I don't have it during work. It's the lowest I've had and even while at home I'm using it less and less. I keep hard candy on hand for morning sickness/ craving moments. gum Isn't my thing.

Back when I used to smoke, I would normally do it in my car while driving around. When I got pregnant, I quit cold turkey and it was a shock for me. Every time  I would get in the car, reach for y cigarettes, just to realize I can't have any.

So what I did was cut some straws to length of a cigarette and I would put it in between my fingers and suck on it just so I could help myself ease out of the habit

I stopped smoking because of HPV it actually makes the body struggle to get rid of it as smoking lowers your immune system, Some strains of HPV Can cause cervical cancer if becomes persistent. So no smoking for me anymore HPV is not a funny thing not worth the risk

Before I found out I was pregnant I was a heavy weed smoker as soon as I found out I was pregnant, I stopped immediately. I'm 11 weeks tomorrow and I've been clean. I'm so proud of myself! I was never able to quit but my baby has been my motivation 😍

I smoked from 18 until a week after I found out I was pregnant. I'm 36yrs old and my on means more to me than anything but the smell of weed/ smoke makes me nauseous so it helped with stopping. Do I want to smoke? Yea but I'm cool for now

I smoked weed my whole pregnancy and absolutely nothing happened my son came out completely healthy. I'm not saying smoking weed while pregnant or just smoking in general is okay to do while pregnant but I have my own personal feeling on it

TIPS: I started smoking when I was 13 and quit when I was 30, 2 years sober. If I have any tips Its take it a craving at a time, you sometimes have to push through the want, Play out the story(ie 60 yrs time are you going to have cancer., emphysema etc) breathe and chewing gum? something to fiddle with. These strategies helped me. I still crave sometimes but I think of how much I want a better future for myself and potential children I have

I was 30 a day smoker for 25 year badly hooked so much o absolutely nothing worked. not pulls not patches, not gum, not sprayed nothing. Vaping has actually been the only thing that worked. It' almost been an year now since I smoked my last lips look better, teeth whiter, I don't smell anymore. I can run up stairs and not be out of breath, taste and smell heightened and no more coughing and spluttering.. I feel so much better now

My mother smoked weed throughout all three of her pregnancies. We are all in good health, first child went to law  school, and second went to med school, currently in med school as well. She said it helped with pain and nausea as well.

Often, the habit of smoking is formed in a certain environment. For example, I always smoked when we met with friends. We smoked cigarettes or vaped together and we enjoyed it. When I'm alone, I don't feel like smoking and vaping - it turns out that smoking can be just a ritual that you don't always perform. Also, people can smoke during breaks at work - when they are at home and not nervous, then they do not need to smoke. I am writing this so that a person can track at what moments he wants to smoke. It can be from boredom, from stress, from someone else's influence. It is important to approach smoking cessation consciously. If a person does not understand why he should do this, he will continue to smoke. It helped me that I found out for myself at what moments I wanted to smoke and tried to keep myself busy with something so as not to think about it.
