So I picked up the bad habit again. Smoked for over 10 years before I had my LO and stopped when I was pregnant. It was so easy to stop when I was pregnant because it made me so sick. Now she's 7 months old and I been smoking again for a couple months. I look forward to that little break in my day (SAHM) to just be outside and have a cig. (of course she is in a safe place like her jumperoo and I can look through the glass in the door to see her)
I think what makes it so hard to quit is that I see people all the time who smoke without anything bad happening to them. My dad is almost 70 and has smoked practically his whole life and doesn't have COPD or lung cancer, etc. My DH's mom has smoked all her life and also nothing bad has happened to her. There's so many people that live to a ripe-old age and smoke.
Has smoking affected anyone in your family in a bad way? I need a freaking wake-up call and looking at statistics just isn't doing it for me. And if you have quit I'd love some inspiration.
