A Facebook post from 13-year-old Drew Werwey of Stockbridge has gotten a lot of attention.

On Tuesday, Verwey contacted News 10 to share a picture of him asking for 1,000 'likes'. His Uncle, John Poole (pictured), said if he got 1,000, he would quit smoking.

Two days later, the post has more than 8,000 'likes', Uncle John is keeping his promise and the family is overwhelmed by the support. News 10's Anthony Sabella has the story at 6.
