It really depends on if you've ever enjoyed it. Ask yourself these questions: are you happy? Have you ever been happy? Now the evaluation of self. During a rehearsal with the group, while you are playing, ask yourself if you are enjoying yourself. If you want to stop smoking because of your friends, then you should not stop doing it. That the wrong reasons. If you want to stop being 'popular', then that is also the wrong reason. I mean, when you grow up, little things like popularity and who has the new boyfriend doesn't matter. The popularity is something to leave behind. The band is not. If you want to stop smoking because I don't think you like marching, then stay with him for a while at least. You can really like marching! I know that I do not want to march. I turned out to really enjoy it. If you want to stop smoking because of the uniforms, then that is the wrong reason. True friends don't judge you because of what you are wearing; they will love you for who you are. That's what all my friends do. I know from experience what you're going through, I have tried to quit in the beginning of the year. Luckily it was already too late to quit smoking. I was pretty miserable for the first few days, and when November rolled around and we had to go play with the high school band, I was really scared of going out in front of everyone in a uniform. As soon as I got to the stadium and sat down the people around me, welcomed me. Then we did dances to the drumline and music and laughed and it was fun! Then, when we went in the field I felt no fear. I fact, I gladly played in front of my friends. And all of them supported me. I was glad that I did not leave the band; I would have regretted the decision. Now, in the background, this decision has to come from you and what you truly want. I hope that my words helped you and gave you confidence. I'll pray for you. don't do anything you'll regret, though. And remember, it is pumped about your choice! Have fun!
