Smoking during pregnancy


I am currently 16 weeks pregnant and will be a single mum! Me and my partner had been together for 3 years but as soon as I told him I was pregnant he went strange with me and then 4 weeks later finished with me and told me he is not ready to start a family. I am heart broken but I know everything will be ok,I know lots of people raise babies alone. I am 25 and have smoked since I was about 18. I have tried to stop since being pregnant but I just cant do it , its the only thing that keeps me sane. My family are always telling me I have to stop for the baby and I know I should but I have tried I have spoken to the midwife about this and even her advice has not been able to stop me. Has anyone got any advice on how to stop ?

    I know the exact feeling! My baby will turn 1 next week but when I was pregnant I Tried so hard to stop from the day I found out I was pregnant but it was just soooo hard. I am proud to say I have now been a non smoker for nearly 6 months. I just cut down completely and when baby was born I got patches and it take a long time to work but it after months of trying I finally did it and I know you can to. When your baby is here make it your goal to try everything you can to stop and I promise you you can do it!

    Get a vape ♡ , I know people think this is wrong too but it far less chemicals than a cigarette. I gave up cigarettes and have been vaping for 2 years now. Im currently pregnant and have just lowered the nicotine in the liquid and will continue until I’m nicotine free .The most important thing is for you no to get stressed .
    Good luck x
