Smoke

Patient : Hi I'm 15 weeks pregnant today and was a smoker before I got pregnant.. I quit smoking before I found out that I was pregnant due to the fact that smoking made me sick.. But today I had the urge for a ciggerette so bad that I almost cried when I couldn't find one.. I found a ciggerette and smoked half of it only enough to make my craving disappear and now I'm a bit scared that it can hurt my baby.. I promised my self today I would no longer cave in.. I'd just like to know if the half a ciggerette I smoked is going to harm my child.. I know smoking is bad during pregnancy.. And I take full responsibility for it.. I'd just like some expert advice without being judged.. Thank you ahead of time... Sheart96
