I have never smoked so it is hard for me to imagine doing something so foolhardy whilst pregnant. Even back then, most people gave up smoking due to some innate knowledge that if it was a vice, it could harm the baby. How prophetic.
I am a smoker and gave up both times while pregnant but smoked after as it seemed to calm me down. Im trying to give it up again for the birth of my first grandchild. I need to be around but it is very difficult to break this dirty habit.
I also have never smoked.I hate seeing pregnant girls smoking, & also seeing couples, smoking away, with a baby or small child in the pram, in front of them. I feel like pulling the cigarets from their months. I frown at them though, as I walk passed. I'm sure 1 of them is going to hit me over the head day! As my husband may say, "Mind your own business!"
