I'm not trying to conceive but I stopped smoking when I got pregnant with my LO and I've been smoke free ever since. I have tried numerous times before and failed but my baby is almost 6 weels and I'm still smoke free with no desire to smoke again. I used to be quite a heavy smoker too. Goodluck with it, you can do it!!

My husband asked that I quit after we got married and I did. There are no health benefits to smoking, its just a nasty habit. It was hard but as soon as he mentioned the words "what are you gonna do if you got pregnant" I threw away the rest of my pack of cigarettes and haven't smoked since.

I read in different books that you should quit smoking a few months before ttc so that you are as healthy as possible when you get pregnant and all the toxins have left your body. So do it ASAP

Congratulations on your second day smoke free! It's great that your making the effort, I have a friend who is a midwife and she told me you can definitely see the difference between babies from a mom who smokes and one who doesn't. You should be very proud of yourself for doing this.

Thank you all for your support! I have been reading all your comments, and they have honestly given me strength to continue my journey quitting smoking. I'm still smoke free and now I'm on Day 4 smoke free and I'm looking forward to trying to conceive my first baby, and my husband has even told me that we can ttc this June, thanks again to all of you. Mwahhh xx
