Attitude towards smoking in the household
If you do smoke try very hard to stop before you start your Home Study.
Smoking does no exclude you from adoption, but many social workers do not look to kindly on smoke in the home, and some may want you to stop before they proceed. In any respect they will not permit you to adopt a child under two if you smoke.
Even if your SW accepts that you smoke, the panel may not. It is best if you quit altogether or restrict yourself to only smoking outside.
Of course, it is in the best interests of the child that it grows up in a household free from the toxins that are found in cigarette smoke and I am confident that once your child comes home you will not want to jeopardise his or her health in any way.
The government has a stop smoking initiative to help you on your way.
