But the way I see it is that before you reach that point the person has had countless opportunities to stop but they've consciously made the decision to continue smoking/drinking/injecting because to them stopping is "too difficult", I'm not suggesting that stopping is easy, just IMO it's easy enough for anyone and the only thing stopping people from quitting smoking at any point is themselves. It's not like if quitting is tough there is no alternatives other than cutting down... things like nicotine patches/gum were invented purely for that purpose.
RE nicotine patches - could be imagining this but am sure I've been told they are worse for a baby than cigs, or almost as bad, whatever
What I'm saying is that quitting completely is entirely more preferable to cutting down and that smoking is more likely to harm the baby than stress, as supported by the backing of the NHS campaign.
Also be careful, the NHS campaign (unless I am very much mistaken) doesn't in any way suggest that smoking causes less or more harm than stress, unless you are suggesting that by not mentioning stress it acacquiesces to this position, which I would submit is a tenuous ground for any argument.
