smoking certified

i feel like a fussy middle-aged mom when i say this, but to the teens who somehow manage to ignore the bombardment of anti-smoking ads that exist nowadays and do it anyway: literally every stubborn teen who starts smoking because it looks and feels cool turns into an embarrassed adult who has to shell out a bunch of money for drugs or therapy to stop. seriously, i could go into the health stuff but you already know it, so i’m just saying literally every adult around my age who still smokes is teetering on an existential abyss of “dear god this habit is pathetic but at least it still looks good in selfies maybe????”
