Your son Jeremy is two months shy of his 16th birthday. Most of the times he is well behaved young man who gets very good grades. In the last year he has picked up a very bad habit. He's been smoking. They first time you caught him smoking you gave him a whuppin' with your belt and he promised to stop. (about a month ago)

Today you were looking at his facebook page (you insist he give you access) You see the following picture.

It is time for professional intervention.

I think we're going to talk. There's always the possibility it's a posed picture, though I doubt it. I'm going to want to do a whiz quiz unless there's a confession. I'm going to point out that addiction, to any substance, is a disease, and part of that disease is lying (to yourself and/or others) about your use. It isn't a matter of "not trusting him", but of caring too much about him to allow him to physically hurt himself.

If the whiz quiz is positive, we're going to talk about whether he wants to stop and can't, or whether he's just blowing me off. If it's the former, I'll get professional help, and will continue to monitor his urine for nicotine. If it's the latter, I am going to give him a switching, stopping about one stroke before CPS would need to be called. It's deliberate, it's certainly dangerous, it's disobedient, and lying about it was, best case, disrespectful. It's just too important an issue to let slide. Either way, he's going to be monitored a lot more closely, complete with "demeaning" whiz quizzes

It's too important a health issue to let slide for fear of hurting feelings. He's already betrayed my trust twice--there's no reason I should worry about him feeling I don't trust him. Given the scenario, I'd be a fool, and a poor parent, if I did.

First, this is illegal behavior, so it's very stupid to be posting it where anyone (like his school principal) can see it.

Second, it's pretty obvious that he's not going to be able to keep his promise to quit without help.

I should have been testing him all along, giving him incentive to quit. I'm going to start doing that now. He probably will be punished for this, but if I didn't switch him the first time, I doubt I will this time. Instead, I'm going to try to find out how much he's really smoking (and where he's getting these things). I will then make a determination on if we need intervention, or just incentive.

I don't know. My personal experience with people addicted to smoking is that the diagnosis of serious or even terminal illness may not be enough incentive to stop. I doubt I can punish Jeremy into quitting. I hope he is not addicted; and if he is, I hope he is internally motivated to quit. I'll do what I can to help him quit, but I wish he'd never started.
