I'm pretty sure you can tell a smoker from a non smoker. Just tell your mom to check his teeth
#15 you do know a "smokers cough" happens when a smoker quits, right? its all the chemicals and other nastiness leaving the system. unless someone's been a smoker for 20/30 years and, as such, have underlying health problems related to their smoking it shouldn't cause a persistent cough. the easiest way to know if someone smokes is if their clothes consistently smell of smoke, they could use deodorant after every cigarette, but its unlikely.
Reapy - Uh, no dear. A smoker's cough is a persistent cough that smokers get, usually after smoking for a long time. It has nothing to do with quitting. It has to do with paralysed cilia in the respiratory tract. Look it up. Very little pisses me off more than people who don't know a goddamned thing about medicine spreading medical misinformation.
It's fairly hard to get rid of the smell of cigarette smoke, it gets into everything, clothes, hair so it shouldn't be too hard for the OP's dad to be found out unless he goes to the trouble of changing/washing his clothes and has a shower after every smoke session. When I was encouraging my wife to give up the smokes she tried all kinds of tricks to hide the fact she had had one, but I always knew, even hours later just from the smell. Also it should be obvious to the therapist that OP isn't smoking and he/she could tell the OP's mum.
Fuck that. How immature is he that he can't even own up to what he did? It will probably come back to bite him in the ass in one way or another
I don't know. Teenagers lie to their parents a lot, in general (don't need the few good ones telling me not everyone does, I know every rule has exceptions). Most people would rather believe their spouse. But, being a smoker who has tried a few times to quit, if I knew my husband had been a smoker I'd know it was his stash. When quitting there are moments I'd kill everyone on Earth just to get a smoke. OP, if your dad ever does quit tell me how he did it.
I am sure Op told her they were not his. She didn't believe him then, why would she believe him now? What I would do is tell your mom you want to go to the doctor's to get a chest x-ray to see if you "damaged" your lungs. Then tell the doctor what happened and have the x-ray as proof there is no damage to your lungs from smoke.
