How do you quit a band when you have a show in 2 1/2 weeks and you know you should do the show, but your friend is planning on swearing during it even though your dad is going to be there and will probably be mad at said swearing? Not to mention he smokes now. And I'm not into the music we do anyways.
It's bad form to quit before a gig if the band won't be able to find a replacement and get said replacement rehearsed and ready in time.  That said, if you aren't feeling the music, the gig will most likely suck anyway. 

Know anyone who plays your instrument who might want to sit in for you?  You probably won't find anyone willing, unless it's a paid gig, but it couldn't hurt to ask around.

I don't know if anyone would want to do that. Plus once I ask around it will be obvious that I want to leave the band, which I don't want the other guys to know yet.

You're part of the band. The band should listen to your concerns. Tell them you'll quit if they don't respect you enough to not be douches, and then follow through.

Well I know it sounds stupid (especially the swearing part) but I never swear in front of my dad because he would be pissed if I did (oops). I think the smoking thing makes sense. Keep in mind we're all under 18.

You don't have to be under 18 for smoking to be a DUMBASS thing to do. As somebody with a lung disease, I have zero respect for a person's decision to PAY MONEY to throw away their ability to breath. The symptoms of my disease are comparable to ONE of the health issues smoking causes (not MIGHT cause; WILL cause) by killing the cilia that remove mucus from the lungs. If the mucus doesn't leave, it harbors bacteria (which you will probably never be able to kill with antibiotics) and eventually kills off that part of the lung forever by blocking oxygen flow. Also, cancer. Just don't do it.

As for swearing, no matter how old you are, there are times where it's not a big deal, and times when it is. This clearly is not the appropriate time, so it's a legitimate issue.
