A friend explained that a number of years ago she attended a fireside for both parents and teenagers. A local leader spoke and explained that as a junior high school student, he learned that a longtime, close friend of his had joined with some other junior high students who had managed to get hold of cigarettes and smoke them. He went on to explain that he had an important decision to make at that time and ultimately he decided that he would no longer associate with that boy. He advised the young people in attendance, if faced with the same choice, to follow his example.
