So I have a 14 year old nephew who has recently started smoking. The kid is really smart and I’m worried he’ll loose interest in school. I think he’s 9th grade. He only sees his father for a few weeks a year since he is working outside the country. His mother is a stereotypical chronic smoker who doesn’t have much ambition in life. I don’t have any experience in the matter but he seems really young to even be dealing with this kind of stuff. I thought about calling him but I’m not sure what to say. He feels like a younger brother to me and I just want to make sure he takes advantage of all life has to offer. I don’t want him to stall out like his mother did. Should I be worried?
