Have a talk about what drugs and drinking can do, why he should not do them at all. Some times you just have to lay the cards out on the table, we live in a rough world, telling him the truth will only help him.

One more thing I'd lke to add, my son liked girls and he got himself in a little trouble, they had co-ed gym, he would slap the girls on there butts.
