Addiction and Substance Abuse

Secondhand crack smoke



My boyfriend started smoking crack when I was 3 1/2 months pregnant and I lived with him in one room and was exposed to the smoke until I became 5 months pregnant and moved out. Will this affect my baby?


I would suspect that your baby would be unaffected. My best advice would be that you stay away from him. Being in an intimate relationship with a crack user is, in my opinion, a big mistake.
