what do 19 year old lads without much money, do to have fun without alcohol and weed!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Theres a lot of fun stuff to do without alcohol or drugs, and contrary to popular belief there are a lot of people out there who do it!. Anyone who says otherwise is narrow minded!.

But it has to be his choice!. Obviously he's made his choiceWww@FoodAQ@Com

A lot of kids get involved with drugs (weed), alcohol due to boredom and also peer pressure!. Try to do a lot of family activities and make your home and surroundings a positive environment as much as you can!. Raising children is not easy even with all the rewards that comes with it!.!. I was a single mom of two teenage daughters!. They're grown now but it was HARD!. I tried to encourage them as much as possible and steer them in the right direction!. Church group and activities always helps, although it's not a guarantee!. I wish you the best for your son!. Always remember this, "Train up a child the way he should go and when he is older he will not depart from it"!. In other words, when you do your best raising your child, even though he may go out into the world and "sow his oats"!.!.!. he'll come back!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Why not try to get him into the local climbing club /swimming /gym he just needs more adventure in his life!.If he has the money to buy weed and beer then he can afford this!.
He will end up with liver problems / mental problems from the weed and look like a old man when hes 30 if he gets there!. I speak from experience my ex was a weed freak and he had paranoia and now looks about 50 and hes 35 I used to drink loads and ended up on a liver ward with stomach problems I turned my life around and im now 31 I dont drink at all I have loads to do go walking(Its free) to the gym(usually not too much) and help out at youth clubs!. I know there seems like nothing else to do but drink for teenagers these days but if he has the imagination and does not want health problems then there is loads to do!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

What an asshole!. My brother is 18 and does the same crap!. I hate him now!.!.!. He wrecked the family!. And he has like no money!. He spent it all!. And has no current job! What to do!. Well it goes on and on and just dont take as much notice as u usually do and let him do his own thing becuase he'll notice you dont seem to care what he does then he will see that its not a good way of getting your attention!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

If he's maintaining his grades and isn't slacking off in class then there isn't much you can do!. If he lives at home or you are paying for his education, threaten to stop paying or to make him pay rent!. Use your resources!. Wear the pants!Www@FoodAQ@Com

if he doesn't abide by your rules, kick his a*s to the curb! there is no way i would tolerate someone acting that way in my home even if he didn't actually do it in the home, grow a spine and lay down the law!Www@FoodAQ@Com

A lot of kids go through this stage of drinking or drugs!. The sad thing is not all of them are able to quit the habit!.
Could you get your son interested in sports, fishing, art, bike racing, etc!. Try it!.!.!.and I hope it works!.
I wish you well!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

There's not much you can do!. If he lives at home then you can kick him out but the man is 19!. Let him live his life!. He really shouldn't smoke but (as long as his grades are good) he his living a normal college life!. Remember your younger years!.!.!. Www@FoodAQ@Com
