Not sure if my parents know I smoke Watch

    I don't regularly smoke, probably only about 1-2 a week but my parents don't know that I smoke - there pretty strongly anti-smoking.

    I had a cigarette today, and I normally chew gum, but I didn't have any. When I went home my Mum gave me a bit of a funny look when I came in. Not sure if she could tell if I'd been smoking? I'm pretty sure she would say something if she thought I had but...

    I know other people who smoke, and I can rarely smell it on their clothes but sometimes on their breath. If i hadn't a drink or chewing gum or anything, would it have been easy to smell?

    You could tell them that you kissed someone that smoked if they question you, it may be embarassing enough for them to not question you further!

    I find it funny how a lot of teens smoke to be edgy, yet are afraid of being found out by their parents :/

    Gone are the days when you could use the pub as an excuse...

    I used to play pool a lot at the pub (it was a village so kids were allowed in to play), I blamed it on the pub and pool cues at to why I stunk of cigarettes.

    But being the older non smoker, I should advise that;

    Smoking isn't cool.
    It'll make your breath smell like crap.
    It'll make your teeth turn yellow.
    You'll struggle financially
    You'll pick up more colds/flus, and when you do they hit you twice as hard.
    Once you've become a full-time smoker, when you eventually quit, the urge/craving no matter how long you quit is always slightly there.

    And above all else, its not set in stone as some smokers live to be 100, but you do run a higher risk of dying at a younger age.
