This touches me. It’s hard in France to be a non-drinker. There was even the threat of division in the church over the Lord’s Supper bc some wanted wine instead of grape juice and I protested that it was a stumbling block to the weak. We compromised with alcohol-free wine. This was my husband’s and my proposal and we were invited to share the communion message to explain the change. My goodness. It was incredibly vulnerable to share my weakness in front of an uncomprehending audience. I cried and could barely speak. But afterwards some came forward expressing struggles of their own so we could see God was at work.

There are many reasons that why teenagers smoke and one of the reason is because of peer pressure. Most of them think that it is a way to look cool and be a part of the crowd. They have to instill enough self respect, esteem and confidence so that they do not feel the need for external approval. People around should help teenagers build up their friendships, shape a healthy body image and deal with stress, without thinking about tobacco use. By helping teenagers and let them have enough confidence to themselves, they would not think of changing themselves by smoking and thus, they can prevent from smoking (Worth 1999).
