Vaping and pregnancy : Are there any moms who struggled... - NCT
Hey lovely! I used to smoke 20 a day until I found out I was pregnant. I cut myself down to 3-4 a day and I had the smoking group call me and give me some advice and patches. The patches really work for me. Although If I get stressed I have a fag (which I feel extremely guilty about). Give your midwife a call and ask if they can refer you to a smoking class. Someone calls you each week and will prescribe smoking patches etc. It’s a start! Good luck xx
Hello! I vaped but gave up straight away. It was tough as I had been a smoker for years and a vaper for two years. It also didn’t help that my husband didn’t give up vaping.
I replaced the vape with eating carrot sticks (would have been hard boiled sweets but I couldn’t stand the sweet taste anymore) I also didn’t allow my husband or anyone to vape or smoke near me. I’d say the cravings went after a month and only then did I actually throw my vape away and now I can’t stand the smell of it at all. I’ve heard that there are also some hypnotherapy sound tracks on you tube that can help, one of my friends had great success with that.
Good luck, take one day at a time! And congratulations on your pregnancy
It’s very tough. I’m trying to not go for my vape as much but I get very anxious. I’ve been trying to chew gum or eat sunflower seeds(to replace it with another habit) but it verrrrry hard. Thanks for the advice , maybe I’ll try vegetables and see where that gets me and Thankyou so much 😁
