How can I help my cousin stop smoking?

He’s 17 years old. He started smoking over the summer to lose weight, and now he’s addicted and can’t stop. He says he wants to stop, and I want to help him. Getting rid of all cigarettes in his house isn’t an option because both his parents smoke. (I’m not sure whether or not they allow him to do it.) I don’t live near him; I only see him during holidays. What can I say to him or do for him to help him break the habit?

      He has to want to. The only thing you can do is not hassle him if he continues. This could take time. So be patient with him.

      there isn’t really anything you can do… he smokes and he is the only one that can want to quit, then he will. and not one second before, no matter what you say!!!

      Tell him to quit "just for the health of it"

      Do you know the difference between a new car and a beat up clunker? Two packs of cigarettes a day! That’s about $300 a month he could be spending on a nice car. And it’s only gonna get more expensive!
