Sadly, when I was a teenager I seen this happen MANY MANY times! and for me that would be a big fat NO
If you knew your teenager smoked would you buy them cigarettes?
Did it work? It's a very real possibility if you smoke to end up in that position. I don't see it as any different as the troubled teens being 'scared straight' by visiting a prison.
It must have, they don't smoke! I found out not too long ago my 17 yr old nephew was smoking maybe I should send him to her!
