I know he's an adult and can make his own choices

my younger cousin, 25 is a cancer survivor.  he had brain cancer at 9 and he beat it, and the only bad side effect was that he is deaf in one ear.  now, i cant speak for everyone but if i was a cancer survivor i would be paranoid about my health.  my cousin isnt.  he drinks often and smokes alot. he even works in a cigar bar and many nights he stays late after hes off from work just to drink wine and hang out with his friends.  ive mentioned it to him but he just shuts the convo down.  im just worried about him.  i love him, hes my baby cousin. i used to babysit for him.  i just wish he can see where i am coming from.

You really think its your place to tell him how he should live his life?

I would ignore you too. That is how I handle people trying to tell me how to live my adult life. Especially after the first time and I ask them to shut it.

I dont blame him. I cant stand when people nag me, especially the ones I love.  He heard you but youre over reacting.

Hmm, who are you to tell him how to live his life? By your own admission he is a grown adult, maybe it's time You treat him as one and not your "BABY" cousin.

Oh and in case you are unaware of this, just because YOU would do something does NOT mean that everyone feels the same way.

i dont nag him about it, but i have mentioned it. we dont  have boundries, we are very open and say whats on our minds.
