I know stupid post but I am just curious on your opinions. Yes I am 18 and considered an adult(so to speak) but I still live with my parents and I live by their rules respectively. Surprisingly my mom doesn't care that I smoke. Well she does and she wants me to succeed in life but is O.K. with it as long as I get my priorities straight which I totally agree with. Heck she even lets me do it in my own room but as a price I have to give her some hehe. The point is some of my friends know this and say she isn't doing her "job". They say she should of took it away and punished me. Beyond the fact that I am not a kid anymore I personally think there is nothing wrong with it. Sure it may be my biased view but I am harming no one. I don't bring anyone into it and would never think to pressure anyone. I am under adult supervision and I am minding my own damn business. Is this to say that I am wrong and she is as well? Even if she did punish me I wouldn't just magically stop. I am not "addicted" by any means and only smoke occasionally. It just seems like regardless of what she would of done it wouldn't matter.
