Maybe it's the taste you're craving? I'm trying to think what you could supplement the taste with, unfortunately I've never smoked so I'm not sure.

God pregnancy does funny things to us. My sister craved soil, dry dusty soil!!! She would go to farmers markets to buy dirty potatos lol and at one point was picking soil off her son's autumn picture he made at school lol

I can't think of anything remotely similar to cigarettes???? Hmmmmmmmmm

Omg!! I've had this with both of my pregnancies but I've never told anyone for fear they would think I was weird lol!! I'm not a smoker either! I have to stop myself from taking big breaths in when walking past smokers lol as I know its bad for me/baby!

Craving non food items is called pica I believe and usually indicates you are low on iron....so get it checked out

i did read somewhere when you have wierd cravings like many of these mentioned you could be deficient in something i copied this article for you ladies

There is a condition called PICA where one has strong cravings for non-food items such as dirt, clay, rust, chalk, paint chips...

Some experts think it may be related to a specific mineral deficiency such as Zinc, Iron, Magnesium....

P.S. NEVER take iron supplements--or others without your doctor's approval (especially iron!).

People say exsmokers get sick at the smell of smoke. Not true! I LOVE the smell of cigarette smoke! I've craved them lately too and I'm coming up on 8 years of a smoke-free existence.
