Im 27 and I got away with it for all those years of my rents not knowing I smoked, how I will never know. My poor parents had to ring before coming around so it gave me enough time to become a non smoker.
Teeth brushed, mouth washed, teeth brushed again. Hands washed if enough time wash hair.Change clothes, Pick up fag butts with carrier bag, yuk. Hide all smoking evidence around the house. The funny thing was I even had my partner doing the same in a panic shes 36. Brush teeth once again just in case.
Poor parents ring me to say they are 10 minutes away, they are even apart of the madness without even knowing. Then when they arrived to find two uneasy people grinning and a almost to perfect house like stepford wives.
All this time I have been hiding this naughty secret. When out in town going down the dogiest alleyways, parks for a smoke just not to be caught.
Trying to tell myself your 27 what are you doing, my life was like the truman show. I was convinced they would pop up at any point as soon as I lit the thing.
Its such a relief now to say to my parents, come around any time but I think the damage is done and they dont seemed to want to come around, I couldnt think why they wouldnt? The thing is I cant tell my parents about the quit as they didnt know I ever started. Now its a new ball game. If they come around I feel I have to hide all of the quit smoking leaflets, wall charts etc. Its endless and very tiring living this under cover life. Im not a bad person just a little mad!
So parents if you were to ever read this post which I hope you dont. Sorrryyy, Im being good now. Much love the "the sporty one in the family" as they call me, I hang my head in shame lol. Ahh I feel better now I have got that off my chest
