    Now I've been smoking for a year and i was caught by my uncle. He hasn't told my parents but had made sly comments and so i decided it was best to tell them myself.
    The only problem, my mates who smoke now my parents well and i don't know how to tell them i told my parents because they'd think I've dumped them right in it.
    Any advice?

    All you can be is honest, but i seriously would think about making the effort to quit. Smoking is a terrible habit that you will regret when you age.

    You silly billy. Just give up and there's nothing to tell. There's your solution. Nothing good comes out of smoking.

    You telling your parents has nothing to do with them. They need to grow up and take responsibility for their actions.

    true, but i do understand where they are coming from. The will look like they're the cause of me smoking, which is what they don't want as they're family friends

    Just break it to them in a polite manner. Say you did it for a little while with friends to stay social with them and then say that you realised it was a stupid decision and for that reason you quit.
