Getting Teenagers to Quit Smoking?

 If you have a teenager that smokes how can you get them to quit?  My 15 year old has been sneaking cigarettes for the past year and no amount of grounding or punishment has worked on her.  I could use some help.

Homeschool. That's what I would do, but I haven't run into that problem, my kids watched my grandma die of lung cancer. They have all agreed not to smoke because of it.

Oh boy, I don't know. I wish I had listened to my mom when she tried to stop me at 17 though.

You couldn't have stopped me. Now, I am addicted and hate it. I did it to look cool, I wish I had known how stupid I looked.

Take all her money. Report her to the police, monitor her friends.

I hate to be the negative Nancy here, but you can't. My parents did everything under the sun. I went to court several times, threatened me with foster care, grounded me, stripped my bedroom, etc. 

I still got away with it...

 Same with me, she will only quit when she wants to.  My 16 year old smokes too so I don't have any great answers.

 ahh im sorry.  i dont have a clue how to get her how to stop im sorry. i never smoked cigs. maybe post a bunch of pictures all around the house of infected lungs and people with missing limbs due to cigarette smoking and all those horribe side effects. post them on the fridge, her bedroom door, the front door, the bathroom door, all over, be creative.  send her random text messages about random statistics about whats in a cigeratte or how many people die a year. just get on her ass until she goes crazy
