Best friend is smoking - December 11th 2010, 11:42 PM

I have a best friend, she is the best person in my life and if anything were to happen to her I would kill myself, like seriously, I would do anything for like I would look a cop straight in the eye and lie for her. We tell each other everything, we have no secrets like literally. I just found out that my best friend, forever, in the world is smoking again. It kills me and I don't know what to do about it. It makes me want to hurt myself. I don't know what to do.

Have you talked to her about it? Realistically, you can't make her quit smoking but you can let her know that you worry about her smoking and that you are prepared to help her if/when she makes the decision to quit.

I agree with Janelle, you can't make her stop, but you can talk to her about how you feel and ask why she started again. Maybe theres a reason, not that there is ever a reason, but maybe she needs to talk things through. You never know, and it can't hurt to ask.

You can not make someone stop, matter of a fact doing so, even out of love could do more harm than good to your friendship/relationship. What you can do as the others have shared is share with her your thoughts and your willingness to help is SHE wants it.
