S: To tell you the truth, I’m too nervous. T: What are you nervous about? S: Well, suppose someone offers me drugs? T: Just say “no”. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. S: Maybe they’ll think I’m stupid.

Dear Li Xiaolei, I am sorry you have found yourself in such a difficult situation. First, there is no need for you to feel embarrassed and awkward. She may think that she is behaving in a grownup way but you are the one with sense on your side. Here is some advice that I think you might give her:
1. Smoking cigarettes is addictive and expensive. 2. It can make you ill later in life. Even breathing in other people’s smoke can make you ill. 3. It is a dirty habit. 4. It is more difficult to stop than it is to start. Second, talk to your friend gently and explain that you are still good friends and don’t want to break this friendship.
However, you’ll not begin smoking to suit her. Give her the information above and then explain that whatever she chooses to do you will remain her friend. Don’t be disappointed, Xiaolei. Good luck and best wishes,
