Hi there. . . i am sure many of us have had things we wish we could get away with when we have a family i mean like some people would want to quit smoking when marrying someone... so i was just wondering if you have actually got rid of something when you were marrying or something you took care of when you were about to have your first child... be as open as you can i would be glad... thanks, and have a good day all of you!

Hello my friend I use to smoke with my friends before I had my daughter, I thought at the time it was really cool once I learned I was having a baby I got rid of that habit really easy, I was just learning so I did not know how to inhale I think that helped make it easy as well, even if that was not the case I would have stopped, you ever see a pregnant lady smoke, how disgusting is that, I get really upset when I see this, how dare you do this to your unborn child, selfish is what I call it Great discussion my friend, some bad habits are hard to break but then there are some that should be easier when your risking another life. Thanks my friend, smoochess sleep well.

Hi kitty Oh it's nice you got rid of it soon, even if you would have learned completely how to smoke i know you would have got rid of it . . . well i can't believe how some people could smoke when they are pregnant, i have never seen any and don't even want to see anyone that way, how selfish could they be really! . . . smoking is very dangerous for the unborn child . . . i am glad you could get over it easily . . . well but for one thing, i would like to say smoking isn't cool, don't get me wrong, i don't mean to point it towards you kitty i am only telling it in a general way, some people like to learn smoking thinking it is cool but there is nothing cool about it... am glad you have got rid of it, stay great my friend . . . see you kitty!

Hello my friend I know what you mean and you are right it is not cool at all, you would be surprised the woman I have seen doing this, disgusting, it was really easy for me to stop bad habit and very addictive but when pregnant one should be able to throw that habit away. Thanks my wonderful friend

i'm a smoker, so i guess that would be the best bad habit that i should get rid off. have tried it dozens of times, and have stopped for a while. but when i'm with my buddies, can't resist smoking.

Yes Fulltank, smoking is hard to leave... at least try it that you don't buy them yourselves, i mean be more of a social smoker for a while and gradually try to decline. . . may be that could help you get away from smoking, i know it may take a lot of time though... all the best my friend.

If there is something Im very proud of is that my husband and I quit smoking. We did it for the sake of our child and we havent even looked back. I was a smoker since 13, and my husband a chain smoker since 16, I was 30 when I quit, and my husband quit at 23. A year has passed and its been smoke free! There is more that I want to get rid of from myself that is negative, and Im doing it still.

Hi voldrox, How are you? You were not in the scene for long time. Hope you are doing well. It is true we have to keep aside some of our habits for our family. Presently I cut down the time for watching TV and spending that time with my son for helping his studies. We are not visiting a cinema hall for watching a movie because our two year old won’t allow us to sit and watch. There are many things like that presently I can’t recollect all. We are postponing some enjoyments for our family and it is very necessary too.
