Default the cat is out of the bag

When I got back home from a friendís last night my parents were waiting for me.
Mom was very agitated and I knew something was up. Dad very calmly told me to sit down and said that they knew I had started smoking and were not happy about it. Mom actually shouted at me that I had to quit or move out. My dad told her not to overreact. You know what we think about smoking Matt my dad said so why did you start. I started because I was curious and continued because I enjoy it I said. He was surprised when I told him I smoked about a pack a day and had no plans to quit anytime soon. I am not allowed to smoke at home but what you do outside of the house we canít control. Mom is very upset and wants me to quit.
In a way I feel better now and not like living two lives. My sister said, they will get used to it eventually, they donít bother me about my smoking anymore.

I'm sure your sister is right, your mother will eventually get over it. That this happened sooner rather than later is for the best. You said it for yourself: you feel better now ... you can now be true to yourself and honest with others.

Although things are a bit uncomfortable at the moment, theyíll get used to it and youíre better off having it out in the open. Youíre of legal age so itís your choice.

So did I understand correctly? Your mother is a smoker yet she doesn’t accept or understand your decision to smoke? What is her justification around this? Maybe I misunderstood.

My father saw me smoke outside a Burger King with some of my friends.

No you did not misunderstand it, my mom is a smoker and her justification is that she thinks it is the worst decision she ever made to start smoking and didnít want her children to make the same mistake. Well both of them did as both my sister and I are smokers now, except that we donít think it is a mistake as we both enjoy being smokers.

And your dad doesn’t smoke but is more accepting of it? She’ll get over it or at least come to terms with it but I imagine it makes you uncomfortable to smoke in front of her if there’s no option and you really need a smoke- wow, torture!

My dad isnít happy about my smoking but does accept it. I am not allowed to smoke at home so donít smoke in front of my parents. As they now know I smoke, I do step outside for a much needed smoke before having breakfast.
