LuckyOwlTheFictionCritic posted a topic in Rants & RavesHere is my situation every other week: I go to look for something in the kitchen that I need in order to cook something, but it's not there, even though we were given money to buy said item. I ask why we don't have it, and the response every time is "I used the money to buy cigarettes for your sister", and every time I feel myself become less tolerant of it. I understand fully well the stress my sister has, being without a home and having to live with our mother, as I am now, but I am reaching my wits end with the smoking excuse. Despite my... expressive upbringing, I do well to not use profanity to describe how I am feeling, but I cannot stop myself when I say this: It's starting to piss me the fuck off. Nobody else is doing ANYTHING to try to get her to give it up, just "you should stop doing that" and "that's not good for you". I love my sister, perhaps the most out of the entirety of our family, but I am on the verge of giving her an ultimatum. Her relationship with her brother, or her cigarettes. So, here I am. Asking, against my Southern nature, for help. Is there anything I can say or anything I can do to get her to stop smoking? This has been Lucky Owl, self-proclaimed critic of fiction.
