At least this FML explains why so many young people smoke. It really is disgusting. I hate walking through clouds of smoke.

I had to vote YDI because if she's your daughter you must have epically failed at raising her. Yeah some are just born less intellectual and that's nobody's fault, but you obviously didn't even teach her basic common sense. Most 8 year olds would know better.

#170 thats not entirely true. Some kids dont tell their parents anything and act all good at home. Usually their friends or tv influence them to think its cool. I know an 11 year old who smoked weed andact good infront of his parents. Of course he got caught but that proves that sometimes its the childs fault. Yes the parent should consut their kids more often but you never know.

My parents do background checks on my friends and i don't even do anything. The closest i ever got to drugs was going to my friend's house and she was smoking weed. She offered and i simply said "no, i'm good". It's really not that hard...

She probably has been told by someone that smoking isn't harmful under the age of 20 and was naive enough to believe it. I just hope OP did the right thing and explained the daughter everything. Also, she should have had some education about this in school.

41- Was that a "is not equal to" sign? In that case I was just noting that while others were stating that they would be cut out of the genepool for being stupid, I was saying that being her being a moron= more likely to have unprotected sex= more likely to have a child. So that natural selection didn't apply in that way here.

Yep natural selection doesnt apply to humans. Social darwinism is utter bullshit put forth by idiots who dont understand natural selection

Your lungs and health are affected no matter how old you are. Nobody should be exposed to smoke.

Kinda is actually. All this fml means to me is op never took the time to explain the dangers of smoking to her daughter. It's not the schools responsibility and that one talk you had back when she was in 3rd grade just wasn't enough.

I'm not saying it's a for sure solution, but I sure wish my parents tried a little harder to keep me away from it. They both smoked from a young age so it was just ok when I was smoking a pack a day at 13. I'm 21 now and spend every day wishing I could quit. I've tried just about everything out thing out there to help and it's just never stuck....

OP's daughter is probably still an idiot, but in her defense, she might have meant that the serious effects (i.e. lung cancer) don't show up until she's older. *shrugs* or she's just dumb.

Biology really doesn't discuss the dangers of smoking, and neither does anatomy. It's a health class that she needs- or maybe just some common sense?

Oh sorry: "What a nico-teen she is! OP should talk with her about this in a firm manner and a serious ace-tone, so she really learns the risks of smoking. But at least she isn't on meth-anol those other drugs. As you were.

Force her daughter to smoke a couple packs and take hours off her life... great parenting.

42, I've heard my parents say plenty of times when they were kids if your parent caught you smoking they'd make you smoke a pack there and then. and a lot of them got put off. I'll try and explain it, it's sort of like pain. Some people can tolerate it but in small doses and as their body gets used to the small doses you may become more tolerant and you will be able to take more. When children started smoking they normally did it because everyone else was but they could only have one or two before feeling it and not having another until the next day/week, my mum used to be like that but never got caught and to this day still smokes!

There's actually a form of behavioral therapy that makes the patient smoke nonstop until they throw up. Once they throw up, many times it conditions the body to hate the substance.

Smokin' killed all dem brain cells, gurl. Idk She doesn't seem very bright, and I wouldn't tell a kid their stupid, but she's stupid. Sorry.

I downed my own comment for making a typo. Now I'm downing yours because I'm a bitch.

Adding onto what 13 said, you also have to actually WANT to stop. My grandpa smoked from the time he was 13 till he was about 30, and all he had to do was throw the pack down and walk away and he hasn't smoked a single one since. But he's got incredible willpower and is also really stubborn, so most people aren't able to do that. Sorry for the anecdote, just thought it was relevant. :)
