Hi
My name is Hellen and would like to share my experiences in smoking. After a short while in marriage, I engaged in untoward behaviors that risked my pregnancy. My loving husband sang the song of cigar abstinence but I never heard. In my first trimester, I almost thought I would suffer from all forms of pains and anguish, but I never did. After visiting the medic, I was warned instantly to stop smoking. Deaf eared I never heard and obliged to her submission. I was so ignorant about the well-being of the growing foetus. My elder sister had to intervene and counselled me to stop smoking otherwise my baby would lack oxygen. The tar in the cigar would clog my blood vessels and limit the flow of oxygenated blood to the growing foetus. It also emerged that I would suffer a miscarriage. Submitting to my sister’s plea, I bowed down and obeyed. After giving birth, the child looked retarded with distorted ears. The legs differed in sizes and the child suffered from a cleft lip. It was so embarrassing as I could have listened to my husband and medic. It taught me a lesson and decided to quit smoking. So that the child passed on after a few weeks of growth. After quitting smoking and gave birth to our second kid, he was full of life and very healthy.
