Our expert says:
Yes, of course, keep it calm but firm. Maybe start by asking her what she knows already about smoking and the dmaage it causes ( then you can build on that with the extra information you have ); and ask her to speculate about why she smokes, despite knowing that. Indicate that you understand peer pressure and the desire to sem "cool", but discuss how to resist peer pressure, and how uncool it actually is to follow others, rather than have the courage of your own opinion.
Emphasize also the aspects Gracie mentions - that it makes a girl LESS attractive in looks, behaviors, and even smell.
You start by asking, in a friendly fashion, and listening, so your comments then fit with what she knows and feels.
