I wonder if little boy will have such views when he is tempted by peer pressure into trying pot or something, I doubt it
at 13 lets face it, we all felt we could take on the world and were always right, sounds to me
like this is just the little buggers way of getting what he wants at the time.
I dont know all the details but I can tell you that I have the greatest mother on the planet (I tell her all the time that she has to live to be 125 because I love her so much ha ha) and she smoked through all my childhood *hey it was the 70s-80's* smoking seemed more acceptable then compared to todays standards
I have asthma, my mom still smokes but she does so outside in the summer,on the balcony in winter and basically only in one room of the house. Not perfect I agree, and the nagging 13 year old still left in my bugs her to stop all the time, but the person has to want to quit otherwise you can nag til you turn blue in the face (I think I almost acheived that!)
anyway, interesting story...... wonder how it will turn out, any thoughts?
