you say you are smoker and now you are pregnant also, first you check that the present baby is not affected by your smoking, it defenitely have effect in many ways. after stoping smoking for minimum of two months you plan for pregnancy. Join the quit smoking groups. there are nicotine replacement and non nicotine replacement medicines now a days. you can see a de addiction medicine specialist and ask them for these. They counsel you how to cope with post smoking days

You ned to stop smoking immediately since it is very injurious to health. Ans laso smoking has lot of affects on teh baby as well. Stop smoking immediately. You may also abort the child if you donot stop smoking. Consult your doctor for help.

This is quite painful that you are smoking inspite of the fact that you are Pregnant. Smoking is dangerous to your baby more than it is to you. Intra Uterine growth retardation of foetus is common problem. Better to leave aside smoking.

I am 35 weeks and 4 days pregnant I ve tried to stop smoking pot since I found out I was pregnant due do issues with not having an appatite unless I smoked and having high anxiety when I didn t smoke. But I have been unsuccessful in my efforts of quitting I smoke about three or four times a day but I want to quit so that I m not at risk of loosing my baby when I go into labor. I m not a bad person and I love my baby and don t want any problems. So my question is what can I do so that my system and clean and clear when I go into labor?

Problem: Erectile Dysfunction. I am 46-years old and on my 12th week of a smoking cessation program. I took Chantix the first two weeks and have been using Nicorette Lozenges on an as needed basis since. My wife also started the program with me, and both of us had been smokers for approximately 30-years. During the first four weeks, sex was no problem, and hadn't been a problem prior to quitting the cigarettes. Starting around the fifth week and up till now I can no longer maintain an erection during intercourse. The good news is that I still wake up with a pretty good erection sometimes but morning usually isn't the greatest time to wake the wife up for a romp in the hay. Everything I've read about ED and smoking runs contrary to what I am experiencing now. Could it be the Nicorrette? Why am I going through this and what can I do about it? Is it normal for someone to experience ED after they have quit smoking and how long does it last?
