I really want to quit... wanna do whats best for the baby and all. I am going to quit one way or the other, but I was wondering. Anyone know if you can use the nicotene gums, or is cold turkey the only option? I've failed so many times in the past trying to quit cold turkey and I really cannot fail this time.
Me (31) and First baby due April 9th!! Yay!! Have my two vicarious babies too, my godkids, Broden (8) and Evelyn (2). Been there since they were concieved, so I love them like my own.

Quitting is really hard. I had to quit too. Good luck. Cold turkey sucks!! I have been coughing so bad more than I was when I was smoking.

I just found out that I am pregnant, and I am also, a smoker. It is very hard to stop, but this is something that we HAVE to do!! Just know you are not alone--I share your pain! But outcome will be greater, to know that your child is healthy! Good luck to you!

I would suggest you freeze some grapes. Everytime you crave a cig suck on one of those. this helped me when I got prego, it also helped the all day sickness, not morning sickness, but all day sickness. LOL
