Ive been smoking for 11 years now. N found out almost 2 weeks ago im 7 weeks pregnant. I know i have to quit as theres alot of family medical issues due to smoking. But i dont feel ready to quit. And dont want to gain n.e more weight then i have to. Ive managed to cut down from over 30 per day to under 10. But my partner still looks down at me for having a fag. What can i do??
Congratulations for putting you unborn child's health first! The fact is that the stress of quitting can put stress on the baby. When I was pergnant and a smoker, I only smoked when I felt like I really had to, which amouted to about five a day. Talk to your doctor about this. - Blu
