Smoking at 12 however, is certainly questionable behaviour.
Maybe their parents never taught them values. I actually knew a lot of people growing up who's parents didn't talk to their kids about sex, drugs, etc. If your parents never tell you what is wrong and right, you could end up like that. I knew multiple people into sex, drugs, and partying before the age of 16 and were kicked out of their homes. It's some pretty messed up sh*t - pardon the language. And some of the kids were able to brush it off. They acted like it was perfectly normal...
For people to have that lifestyle at a young age and be proud about it (or treat it like normal behaviour)... it's not right.
