When I was little my dad used to smoke but he quit. Then a few months ago I found  a lighter in my dad coat. He said my uncle has asked my dad to carry it and had forgot to get it back i believed him. But  i have seen him smoke and I don't know what to do. If I tell my mum they might get a divorce because she wouldn't put up with it. I'm so mad at him I'm not going to speak to him. What do I do ? Should I tell my mum ? Should  I tell my sister ?

Just ask your dad about it...

Someone once told me not to bite off more than I can chew. I told them I'd rather choke on greatness than nibble on mediocrity.

You should tell an adult you trust. This is very important and you should not keep it to yourself

Im sorry for saying this but your Dads the adult. He knows what hes doing. Hopefully he will get through this phase fast. 

Talk to him if you can and tell him how its upsetting you. But its not that serious unless he smokes for the long period of time and then theres the chance of getting cancer.

 Well, I would tell my dad that it's bothering me, that it's not good for him, and no one except for him is happy about him smoking. If he says he understands those points but isn't willing to quit, deal with it, don't tell your mother, and try to ignore it. 
I hope you figure this out.

Yo people!! Enjoy my awes-fast-abu-ful forum posts!

You don't need to tell anyone. He's an adult and he can make his own choices, albeit some may be mistakes. He's only human. It is his life and his body he's choosing not to respect. In all honesty, it's his business not yours. I get you're concerned and I understand, but it seems like one of those issues you can just leave be.

On the other hand, however, I think if there's anyone who has a right to tell someone else that they should stop smoking it's the child of a parent.  I don't think it's fair to expect a child to watch their parent go through the negative health effects of smoking, to have to suffer through the potential side effects of second and third hand smoke, or to have to keep a secret that would potentially break up their parents relationship. Yeah, there's the whole right to bodily autonomy thing, but someone else's right to bodily autonomy ends where mine begins, in other words, you lose your right to do whatever you want with your body when it starts to affect me. I'm not advocating a ban on smoking, I just don't think that it's the morally conscious decision for a father to pick up smoking.

You should tell your mom.. , just tell them how you feel if they got a divorce ... then tell your dad o promise never to do it again... sometimes adults smoke to calm their nerves maybe he having family problems .. your family should do something together once in a while .. :)

Life is too short .. to waste
