    Since going away to college last year I started smoking (I know it's bad and all that). When I've been home at weekends I didn't smoke. Both my parents are anti smoking and I know they wouldn't be impressed about it. Now that I'm home for the Summer I haven't been smoking there but do when I am work or out with mates.

    I know it sounds lame - I am 19 - but don't want to get grief from them about it - I am the oldest at home so they will give out to me about being a bad example and all that.

    If you smoke did you tell your parents or did they find out? Did you get any grief about it?

    Mate don't tell them. You've made it clear you'll get grilled for it so just keep it a secret.

    Also you're lame for smoking.

    When I smoked, yeah. They weren't happy about it but not a lot they could do. Both my parents are smokers btw.

    I've never told my parents and I'm 26. It's just too much hassle.

    Hell no, I haven't lived there for 7 years. It's pretty easy to hide.

    My Mum spotted a fag packet in my pocket and I was caught out. Didn't get too much grief, but still felt bad about it.
