Started smoking again after birth- stopping cold turkey

Well, 6 weeks after when I went home for my grandmother's funeral to my chainsmoking family. Before pregnancy I was on 30 a day, then 2 a day and didn't quit until 25 weeks.

My baby is 3 months old and I smoke when he's away with DH then shower before they get home. So I'm smoking secretly sad I smoke about twice a week but I know its only a matter of time.

I'm going to re-read Allen Carr as I have never found vaping or NRT helpful.

I know smoking is a big load of bullshit. Anyone want to join me?

Very good luck!

If you are only smoking about twice a week I think you are right to knock it on the head now - much easier than if you carry on & the amount you smoke will inevitably increase.

I gave up by vaping, nearly 3 years ago & still vape but we will all be here for you to offer support when ever you need it.

How's it going? There have been a couple of lively Allen Carr threads on here.

Badly! Still smoking at the same level. Allen Carr isn't working his magic for me this time sad I'm thinking of going to the clinic.

Oh sorry to hear that. Yes, going to your local Stop Smoking clinic is a good idea. They have (relatively) high success rates. Don't be fobbed off with GP care, they don't do nearly so well.

Meanwhile, think about what you can learn from this attempt. What things worked best and what situations did you find most difficult?
