INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE TOBACCO ADDICTION WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is tobacco addiction during pregnancy?

Tobacco addiction is a long-term disorder that is characterized by an uncontrollable – or difficult-to-control – desire to get the drug nicotine from tobacco into the body, usually by way of smoking. Since smoking is a drug addiction, it can be very difficult for a smoker to quit the habit, even when preparing for pregnancy, after becoming pregnant, or after giving birth, despite knowing that tobacco use during pregnancy, or during breast feeding, leads to dire consequences for the developing baby or nursing infant.
