I have really young kids, I smoked through both of my pregnancy’s, which is totally shameful, I cut back, absolutely, but that is just a justification that’s really just abhorrent. Sometimes I look at my kids and imagine putting a cigarette in their mouth and the shame is immense.
I never smoke in front of my kids, but the other day my three year old told me I smelt funny and rubbed his nose when he hugged me. I cannot smoke anymore.
I have read all of your stories and am so thrilled to be on this site. I want to quit for myself, I also want to quit for my kids. I loved the statement by someone saying I can always have a cigarette because I can, and I previously always have, but I’m choosing not too anymore.
I have smoked for at least 20 years, between 10-20 a day depending on my stress levels. I can’t imagine what it has done to my body, but I am young, and I believe I can heal from this damage because our bodies are amazing things.
I am already thankful for the support this site offers. Not another puff, happy new year everyone.
