Just so everyone knows; I'm a smoker and a lot of my friends are, too. Smoking is not immature, any more than drinking is. However, we are all legal adults; that is the difference.
Also, I highly doubt that your friend either looks or acts seventeen. Trust me, I have seen loads of little tarty children who've plastered on the makeup, wrapped a belt around their waist pretending it's a skirt and tottered up to the bar on stilettos to attempt to buy alcohol... and then been refused by either myself or a collegue. Some of them are so laughable it's pathetic. They look exactly like what they are; children pretending to be grown up.
