How to quit smoking

Hi there. Mummies who were smokers before you got pregnant, how did y'all quit smoking during pregnancy? I'm still in my early stages and I find it so hard to just quit smoking. I've gradually decreased my smoking session though (max I'd smoke in a day would be 3 sticks) but I really wanna quit smoking totally. I wouldn't want anything to affect the foetus. Also , I have a toddler turning 2 at home so I don't want to affect his health as well. Although I know that it's all in god's hand if anything were to happen to my foetus , I still feel that I play a part in keeping this pregnancy healthy. Hope to hear some advises on how you guys kept away from smoking. Thanks!!

Hi Mummy, i am a heavy smoker too (1-2 packs a day) I stopped immediately when i found out i am 3 weeks pregnant. Took my last stick and that’s it. Had the urge to smoke but forced myself not to. I still mix around w smokers but will not follow them for smoke breaks. It’s hard, even when i am 10 weeks pregnant now, the urge is still there but thankfully i am able to control myself. I hope you’re able to quit soon! You got this 🤍
