as long as he isnt getting addicted to cigs he's fine
with booze just make sure he isnt doing stupid shit like driving or letting people drive drunk, no respect, also tell him you understand what he's doing, and you care about him (homo), that if he even needs a ride home and cant stand what is happening that your there, and you arnt judgeing him based on his early life choices
^my friend did this for me and it helps to know he cares and is interested in my well being but doesnt want to partake, which i ammend him on, JUST DONT LET HIM DO STUPID SHIT< DRIVE DRUNK< SMOKE IN SUPER PUBLIC PLACES< MOVE PAST WEED AND BOOZE
also if he starts taking cocaine.......sign him up for a pitchmen audition, to soon? fuck you guys
Pretty sure that the rate of people that don't relapse after rehab is 2-3%. Taking someone who only smokes and drinks and being a total dick getting him sent to rehab for hard drugs, fucking with his parents head, fucking with his parents wallet 15-30 grand, fucking his life for two months and sending him to a place that is filled with crack heads who know how to grow their own crack rocks that will tell him how great hard drugs are, will simply piss him off making him want to start doing hard drugs. That doesn't help much. First of all the only people that try to get clean from rehab are the ones that choose to go and try not to do any more drugs.
Weed and alcohal are something every 16 year old likes, and if he started at 16 that is fairly late. Get him off cigs though, they just smell bad fuck your lungs waste your money and repulse attractive girls. You could point out he could save that money for weed or alcohal or molly though.
