I have 2 boys, ages 14 and 13 now who have smoked since about ages 10 and 9. I tried everything under the sun to get them to stop (punishing, grounding, taking away priveleges, etc., etc)....Guess what? NOTHING WORKED ! They still smoked ! Bottom line is that if they intend to smoke as kids, they are going to do it. I ended up having to admit defeat and just hope that at some time in the future reality sets in on them. I just let them know i love them and that my stand has not changed as to being opposed to it. But there really is nothing more I can do. Basically, they won the battle and I lost...and they are still smoking.

I know this wasn't directed towards me, but my guess is that either they or friends of theirs are stealing them from other people. Thats how the crowd around here gets it.
And as an update, my dd has not tried smoking again since and has no desire to from what she says. I believe her.
