Long story short I started smoking cigarettes when I was 12.. I stopped when I fell pregnant with Paisley but started again when Paisley's father (who was also my best friend) left us when Paisley was two weeks old. When I was 14 my mom found out and gave me a lecture/a yelling and made me promise I'd stop. I did stop until she was off my case and started smoking again. I needed it.. I was having panic attacks and nightmares without my daily smokes.. It was bad.
I'm almost 18 and still smoke.. Not only cigarettes.. I'm sure my parents know but they know they have no chance to get me to stop (or are just pretending to not know). So my question is, if you found out your young child or children smoke or started smoking at a young age, how would you react?
