  • I would not it is her life now, she is 21. But I would say something like I gave you a healthy body to live your life in the least you can do is treat it right and take care of your self!

  • If she still lived in my house and I didn't allow smoking.... Yes I Would!

  • Nope. Even if she was living in my house.. if she didn't do them IN the house, then I would have no right to take them away. She is 21 after all, and it's her choice.

  • 21 you said?

    well, then this will be your answer. if you are a non-smoker household then just tell her to go outside. other than that: its not your business, she is old enough ;)

  • No shes an adult but I wouldn't let her smoke in my house. I'd probably constantly remind her of the damage shes doing to her body! Hopefully she'd get sick of hearing it and quit! Of course easier said then done.
