Question: Do I have to stop smoking?
Decades ago you might see a pregnant woman with a lit cigarette dangling from her lips, but today that picture is scarce. Smoking is a subject that has become controversial over the past few years. Not only is it unusual in many cities and states to see a pregnant woman smoking, but it has become increasingly rare to see anyone smoking. With businesses, restaurants, and even bars going smoke free, a smoker tends to hide behind a building in the alley when smoking.
Of course, smoking has been proven to cause health issues for everyone. So if you are a smoker who might have difficulty giving up the puffing, discuss this issue with your doctor. He will probably only give you the cons with no pros to this subject, but he may also give you suggestions for making quitting easier if that is your choice.
