You are going to give birth to a child, and it is certainly one of the most beautiful things that will happen to you in your life. Think of quitting smoking not as a burden, but as a gift you give to your unborn baby.
Why don't you stop smoking as a couple?
Your child is growing inside you, so you have a great responsibility. During these 9 months, this baby is part of you: he eats like you, he feels some of your emotions, your anxieties, your joys, he walks with you, he hears what you hear and also breathes the air you breathe. So yes, you have a great responsibility to protect your children, but so do the people around you, in a way. The purity of the environment in which you and your child live is important, and it is important to avoid exposing them to passive smoking. So why not take advantage of the arrival of your wonder to improve the health of the whole family? Does your spouse smoke? What if you offered to stop smoking with you?
You have made the choice, for your unborn child, to quit smoking and your spouse knows it. He may even have encouraged you to do so. Explain how quitting smoking would make it easier for you to quit! Despite all your goodwill, you may have cravings, and these will be easier to overcome if you don't have your partner's cigarettes on hand.
The same is true for your spouse: if you no longer smoke, it will be easier for him not to think about smoking and to change his mind with you, for example by going out for a walk and choosing little slippers for the birth of your baby!
This argument is a strong one: your spouse, like you, wants the best for your unborn baby. Although your behaviour has the greatest impact on your unborn baby during pregnancy, given the proximity of a mother to her fetus, it cannot always protect her from passive smoking. By quitting smoking, your partner will increase with you the chances of having a healthy child.
It is already a great proof of love from you and your partner to quit smoking during pregnancy. If you've lasted 9 months, why not last a lifetime? By quitting smoking during pregnancy, you will have done the hard part! By continuing your efforts together after the birth of your child, you can be proud to welcome this new little one into a healthy home, where he or she can grow and develop without harmful smoke.
Your spouse is certainly already well aware of the risks associated with smoking on his or her own health. Try to make him realize that it will now be important for him to be healthy not only for himself, but also for that child who will need his Daddy. Quitting smoking will allow him to live better and longer, and your child, when he realizes this, will always be grateful to him!
Today, no smoker wants his child to suffer from this nicotine addiction. By setting an example for non-smoking parents, you and your partner can significantly reduce the risk that your child will also smoke by mimicry. Your child will naturally be in admiration in front of you and will do everything as you do! So if you are healthy and happy parents, so will he be!
