My dad started smoking
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.
I hope you figure this out.
Yo people!! Enjoy my awes-fast-abu-ful forum posts!

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.
