Smoking and drinking is completely no no in pregnancy. Ideally smoking itself is bad in every way. U will realize what u have done to it lungs once u go for any vigorous exercise like running or even climbing steps. Anyway u have a right on ur body but then not on the fetal body and growth. Think upon it. U would have craving only for 4 days not after that. Cipla nicotine  chewing gum is available in medical stores. They would help u

Smoking during pregnancy exposes a baby to many harmful chemicals, including carbon monoxide. These chemicals limit the baby's supply of oxygen and the delivery of nutrients. Smoking during pregnancy has also been linked with many health problems, including:

Problems with the placenta
A reduction in birth weight
Preterm premature rupture of the membranes — when the amniotic sac leaks or breaks before week 37 of pregnancy
Premature birth
Certain birth defects
Pregnancy loss...
