Two months down the line, and I have only just seen this.

 

 

Yes, there is a lot of truth in the article. My late mother smoked so much throughout her life, and it claimed her life when she was in her mid 50s - (she gradually became very ill, went to the hospital, doctors diagnosed terminal lung cancer and a week later she was gone).

 

 

I believe that my mother's smoking caused the fact that I was starved of oxygen at birth and I had a below average Apgar score - (according to my birth notes, my skin was closer to blue than pink at birth), it has made me have the problems that I have had in the years to come such as Asperger Syndrome and social anxiety. Back then of course, in 1978 when I was born, although there were already the dangers of smoking that Sir Richard Doll had 20 years previously, we were still a while away from the discoveries and finding dangers that mothers smoking causes to unborn babies. It's almost like a form of abuse in a way.

 

 

It does harm babies before they are born, and I believe that even a mother who has given up smoking years previously, can also have babies affected as well.
