Our expert says:
There is no doubt in scientific literature that smoking has numerous harmful effects on the body and it is definitely linked to certain cancers.
It is never a good idea to try quit smoking when you are going through a difficult time. The withdrawal and craving for the smoking will certainly cause much further distress.
My advice is that when your daughter is well emotionally - which sounds like she is now - have a chat with her about the risks of smoking. I also suggest that she joins a stop-smoking program such as Smoke Enders, etc.
