Many of my friends have issues trying to quit smoking and drinking and they need help problem is that i do not know how to really help them anymore because i have tried everything to help them, but I was able to help out my best friend even though they sometimes do smoke or drink it helped them not do it so often. The main reason why many of my friends started drinking was that they felt like they where being pressured to do so in high school and they ended up liking the feeling of being high and drinking when they had the chance because either their parents where gone or they had friends around them. I tried many things to help but seem like there is no way out of it for them because they like it. Since they started these habits they have done many wrong things including: stealing, abusiveness to others, and some did not end up graduating school because of choosing to ditch classes to go "hit the pot" or whatever you may call it, when they should really be using their heads and showing that they are intelligent and that they know what they are doing because i know that they are smart people (even smarter than me) and i have read online that they are killing brain cells which is not something good (obviously). What could other people including me do that could help the people we love?
