You should quit smoking now before you get too addicted. There's a good chance you'll regret it later on in life when you try and quit then. It's not good for you, and you should seek other ways to lose weight.

Uhu...

smoke > get cancer or another disease that will end up killing you > die.
result? weight loss = POINTLESS.

change your lifestyle > lose weight PROPERLY > alive, and healthy, and not at all pointless.

Ok yeah smoking is bad but its a great appetite suppressant. Just limit the amount you smoke and try lighter natural cigs. Yeah it can cause cancer but everything can these days, really its up to you. I smoke 2 cigs a week and I'm not addicted or anything.

if you smoke, you have a 20% chance of dieing from it. Find other ways to lose wieght. It is not a fun death either, I have watch my grand father die from it. It is a vey slow, very painful death.

Get rid of all your cigarettes. Burn them or whatever and never buy any more. Trust me, each new cigarette you smoke will only increase the chances of you becoming truly addicted to it. Seriously, if you stop now, it won't be long before your health returns to what it was; as if you never smoked in the first place. If this simply isn't going to happen, I can only recommend more professional help like patches or smoking deterrants that make you sick with smoking or something like that.

Tell your friend that she is effectively killing you and herself and needs to stop NOW. Smoking is not a way to loose weight. Smoking kills you. Smoking is pointless. You want to tell your friend this too, otherwise you'll be watching her kill herself.

This is serious. You're 14. If you get addicted to this stuff, do you know the costs involved and the damage it is doing to you? You need to stop while you can, seriously. Otherwise it WILL get out of control and you WILL NOT be able to get out of this like you can now. Please.

Imagine if your mum found out (and it's very likely). I don't mean to scare you, but this is a very very bad idea.

Just because she had 5 and you had 2, doesn't make it bad. Not only is she killing herself but you're killing yourself at half the speed. Smoking one or a thirty a day are as bad as each other; eventually you'll get hooked and be smoking even more than that.

Tone it down, please. For the sake of the two of you.

You and your friend are only 14 years old and shouldn't be smoking at that age. Tell your friends you want out of this smoking as it gives you a very high chance of getting a lethal disease, including cancer.

In each cigarette you smoke, the mixture of carbon monoxide and nicotine increases your blood pressure and heart rate which strains your heart and blood vessels. This leads to strokes, heart attacks and it slows down your blood flow dramatically and cuts off oxygen to your hands and feet - many smokers even end up having their limbs amputated because of this. So healthwise, smoking is seriously dangerous.

Smoking also causes problems for your appearance such as yellow stained teeth and fingernails, tooth loss, dries the skin which causes more wrinkles (even in younger people), it can make you look upto 10-20 years older (not in a good way though) and most smokers tend to have a "greyish", tired and wasted appearance in their face. Also, smoking makes your hair and clothes making it obvious that you're a smoker and it gives you nasty bad breath. And I'm certainly sure you wouldn't want any of these, would you?

Did you know that only one cigarette cuts off 5 minutes of your life? Well all of these cigarettes add up sooner or later, adding on more "5 minutes" and can eventually result in many years that have been cut off due to smoking - if you don't quit now while you can. Also, one in two smokers eventually die from their habit, I'm not meaning to scare you here but it're true. Smoking causes about one in five deaths from heart disease and in younger people around three out of four deaths from heart disease are due to smoking. Remember that the next time your friends are smoking.

I also think that you HAVE the chance to quit smoking, now. So please quit before it's too late, because once you start it's difficult as hell to escape, smoking is an expensive and harmful habit so please, escape while you can! You say you can't help smoking when your friends are smoking, so 1) If this is the case then I believe your friends are a bad influence on you and 2) I think you do have the willpower to resist the smoking as I think I recall your excellent willpower when you used to cut, because you don't cut anymore, I think that's right?

Many people are fooled into thinking smoking benefits your figure, but that's really not the case, at all. Please find help to lose weight sensibly and positively instead of doing it the dangerous and negative way which gives you so many horrible disadvantages to your health.

Good luck, hun <3

Are you still smoking Hollie or are you now stopping with whichever methods you choose?

My first cig was 2 months ago. I started smoking with my best friend, Nikki. Her Aunt gave them to us. I ended up switching brands(after smoking two packs of one kind) and got incredibly sick and passed out on her porch. I've been craving a cig SOOOOO bad. but i know it's not worth it. My parents just quit, once I started (ironic??!) so they'd be able to smell the smoke on me anyways.
But yeah, don't start. Trust me, it sucks.

☾I hold the stars between my lips.☆

add,msg,talk.
I'm here to help(:
