The other day I went to the gas station and outside the door was a woman that looked to be about 8 months pregnant.
She must’ve been on her break because she was in uniform and very friendly with the customers as they walked in.
As I got closer to the door and this woman I noticed she had something in her hand. To my surprise, it was a cigarette!
I looked around in horror wondering if anybody else was watching this woman. She was really puffing away. It must’ve been a difficult shift for her because she was grasping that cigarette between her fingers and inhaling like her life depended on it.
For some reason I thought smoking while pregnant was illegal, but this puffing dragon lady showed me it wasn’t.
I’m bewildered that people smoke in general knowing that it causes cancer, but why do women think it’s okay to subject their babies to that treatment too?
A mother and baby that smokes together stays together? Oh addiction.
