Hi i need some advice from one or any of the therepists .
My 15 year old son started smoking this past summer . We are a none smoking family niether my husband or i somke and in fact we are very much againts smoking and talk about it with our kids and explained to them how unhealthy it is . Even though my son knows how unhealthy it is , he still started smokingisgust He does not smoke in the house beacuse i will not allow it . But when he comes back from hanging out with friends he smells like an ashtray. A few times when i gave him some pocket money later in the day i would find a pack of cigaretts in his pockets. I told him that i will not give him money any more beacuse he buys cigaretts with it.
I am really very upset and fustrated with him i know that there is alot of peer presure and when you are around other kids that smoke it is hard not to , but What can i do to convice him to stop smoking for his own banifit. if he doesnt stop now he will regret it later when he will be addicted to cigaretts and really have a hard time quiting.
how can i stop him now before it is too late..help

There are organizations that provide public education on the dangers of smoking. perhaps you can get one of them to make a presentation to your son's school-so it won't be him singled out. hopefully they'll know how to convince teenagers...
