She knows it comes with health issues! Leave her alone!

Another thing - have a look at any of the online dating sites, you will see profile after profile of people who insist their partner "must not be a smoker".




I really can't see using an example of people who use online dating as being effective. It might produce something like 'Oh, hey. Desperados on the internet aren't into smoking!' though.

I'll agree with the people who have said that telling her not to do it will simple make her do it more, unless you have some bizarre, unrealistic 7th Heaven type of family.

Also, it's really not anyone elses business whether she smokes or not.

Thank you for all your comments guys.

Most of you pretty much insinuated that I need to leave her alone. Since I'm going into Nursing, I've studied effects that these things do to ones body, it's hard to imagine my own sister is going to that route.

Anyway, my sister is my best friend so "leaving her alone/not getting into her business" is like watching someone you truly love throw herself off a bridge. but who cares right? it's not my business.

Tell her that its going to make her age faster. She'll get more wrinkles and it will show in her skin. Unfortunately at 16, I don't think anything will work other than showing her the physical effects that could and will happen. Her looks are one thing. Then from there health concerns, and from you can't do anything until she wants to quit.

I'm guessing there are at least a few of her friends that think smoking is gross and uncool. Get them to give her their opinion of her new habit, that'll hold a lot more weight with her.

She's just going through a phase; until she gets sick and dies.

Forget it, no-one can tell a teen-age girl anything, all you can do is make it worse.
I'm serious, NOT joking, stand back, leave her alone, she will or will not come to her senses, the only thing you can achieve by sticking your nose in is to drive her further away, and to risk making an "enemy" of yourself, long-term.

It Sucks big-time, but that's life, "be there as a non-judgmental friend and you'll be there at the end" is an old Hippy maxim that has a deep core of truth, hey?

Yeah, I know I stuffed it up, I can't remember the rhyme, but you get the idea?


thank for trying to help my sister i appreciate it. but to tell you the truth she knows actually everyone knows that i don't act like an adolescent. i sometimes have a dilapidated mind because i write a lot, so it was one time that i just wanted to act out like every other person or to say teen. it's stupid really but thanks anyways

Id say that you've already made your point to her, so theres no use in opposing it anymore. Just let her enjoy it for now.

I remember when my step-sister started smoking when she was only 11 years old, everyone acted like it was the end of the world. Trying to crackdown on her only made her want to smoke even more. Now shes 23 and still chain smoking 2 to 3 packs a day, and she loves it.

HI
I'm Sophie. I am 15 and I smoke. I don't regret starting when I was 13 as I really love smoking. My boyfriend also smokes. my mum tried to get me to stop but I wouldn't listen and now she accepts it. now that I am hooked there is no way I will stop. I enjoy it too much.

I agree with Laura. I smoke and really enjoy it. my boyfriend also smokes and we have no intention of stopping. Let her smoke.
