Bonnie Says: Demi Moore, Stop Smoking — Your 17-Year-Old Daughter Is Copying You!

Posted Mon, April 18, 2011 5:25pm EDT

Demi, you may not care about your own health, but you should care that your daughter Tallulah Willis, 17, is now increasing her risk of developing deadly lung cancer!

If there is one thing that is certain as a parent — You are a role model for you children. And sadly, Demi Moore, you are doing your three daughters no good by puffing away on cancer sticks.

Sadly, your youngest daughter, Tallulah, 17, was photographed this past weekend at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, smoking vigorously.

Demi, children are three times more likely to smoke if a parent smokes. And teens who smoke are highly likely to become adult smokers, according to Cancer Research UK.

They are also far more likely than non-smokers to die from cancer and respiratory diseases like emphysema and bronchitis, as well as heart disease and thrombosis.

If that doesn’t bother you, Demi, how about this: tobacco smoking is the single greatest CAUSE OF DISEASE in the developed world, according to the World Health Organization. It also happens to be illegal for a 17 year-old to smoke, so Tallulah is actually breaking the law.

As a mother, don’t you have a responsibility to protect your children from harmful situations and substances? You are 49 years- old and far more able to understand the consequences of your actions than a 17-year-old or a 22-year-old, since your daughter Rumer smokes too! You will save your own lungs and Tallulah’s by quitting smoking now! Do it Demi!

Wow! Get off your high horse! I hope you don’t actually call yourself a journalist Ms Fuller, Witchfinder General may be more apt!

I have never smoked, I mean I tried a puff of a cigarette when I was much younger but never enjoyed it. The fact is she is a teenager and for some reason it is the “cool” thing to do. All we can hope is that she grows out of this phase and will one day realize it is not “cool” and it is not good for her health. Now the fact that her mom and at least one of her sisters is a smoker will most likely not be favorable to quit but hopefully she will gain some wisdom with age.

With that being said I just read she was caught drinking underage and mommy had to come get her. I think somebody has too much freedom and not enough boundaries.

It is sad when both parents are setting a bad example. However each child has a choice. My nephews hate smoking and both of their parent smoke. They have grown up with too numerous to count respiratory issues as a result of their parents smoking. It is not only the example set, it is also their health quality growing up in such an environment.

This is 3rd time I have tried to reply. Bonnie is one of those people who doesn’t want someone to do something if dhe doesn’t agree with it. Kids don’t smoke because of their parents, it’s because of rebellion, peer pressure, or they think it is cool. I have friends who smoke and their teens or adult children don’t. Bonnie, lay off!

not that i’m an advocate of smoking, but there ARE other reasons. some people start to lose weight because the cigs make people lose their appetite. also, smoking is a great (and harmful) way to relieve stress. i know many teens smoke for the reasons you listed, but when i smoked a few years ago, it was for the reasons i just listed, not to look cool or because of peer pressure.
