    16 year old teen - I made a bad decision and I am trying to fix it. Please help me.

    Hey guys, (sorry for the bad grammar, I don't live in USA)
    I started smoking cigarettes when I was a freshmen, and moved on to vaping after finishing the first semester of soph. I thought that smoking cigarettes were okay, since I continued maintain perfect scores. I also thought that smoking cigarettes made me look though compared to other students.

    But now, as a junior, I learned that smoking cigarettes underaged makes me look ignorant, and I learned that the hard way.

    I am now dependent on nicotine.
    If I don't take a hit from a vape once in an hour, I can feel my body telling me to gtfo of class, go to a stall, and chain smoke the hell out of my vape.

    After determining myself to quit, I threw my vape into a lake and drained all the e-liquid bottles. Shortly after, I came clean with my parents and told them that I smoke.

    However I still feel the strong urge of smoking a cigarette, and declining offers from my friends were the hardest thing to do... It's my first week of cessation, and I'm scared that I will start again.

    Someone please help me become a better person and a better son.
