Pregnant Smokers May Suffer Depression

There are 5 comments on the The Associated Press story from Sep 11, 2007, titled Pregnant Smokers May Suffer Depression . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

“Society's responsibility is to provide a treatment. Because here you have two individuals that will be affected.”

More than one in 10 pregnant women smoke, and new research suggests many of them also may suffer from depression, making kicking the habit even harder.

The emerging science suggests that decades-old 'quit for your baby' messages are too simplistic an approach for many women _ and that perhaps prenatal checkups should include screening pregnant smokers for mental health disorders that themselves require care.

'These ladies all know, I promise you, about the health risks.

Another limpdick smoker trying to get other stupid smokers to give their financial information to a bunch of crooks. Way to go, LIMPDICK. Quit smoking and you won't have to work at a crappy assed job like this. Maybe you will even get a woman once you stop stinking like a smoky turd.

Big deal ? Sure if your girl friend is knocked-up a smoker has reason to be depressed.
