YOUTH: In this excerpt from his educational video The Truth About Tobacco, Patrick Reynolds revives the ancient tradition of initiation for teens. “I want to gently open your eyes to the reality that there’s bad in the world, and that life brings everyone painful moments and obstacles. It’s not meant to be easy, and it’s by our struggles to succeed that we define our characters and become strong men and women. By staying with whatever difficulty life throws at us, we solve our problems — not by running away. Many adults escape their pain with cigarettes, food, alcohol, drugs, TV, or even work. A lot of teens use music. When problems arise, and they will, don’t alter your mood by running away to these. Stay with the problem and talk to others about it — a trusted teacher, your parents, the school counselor, your friends. Talk to someone. You’re initiated now — and a little closer to the world of adults.” To learn more or order the complete educational video, please see Tobaccofree.org/video/
