A mahoover Production
You have smoked since you were a teenager, and tried to quit several times, but have not been able to quit yet. You decided to give it another try, but you didn't want a lot of pressure about quitting, so you didn't tell anyone. You have managed to cut back from over a pack a day to two cigarettes a day.
Because you are keeping track of how many cigarettes you smoke, you notice that more cigarettes are missing than you are smoking. You keep your eyes open and notice that your oldest son Brett (16) is eating a lot of mints and using a more cologne than he has in the past. You have him come into your office and you ask him if he has been smoking. He bursts out with "I'm going to kill them." When you ask him what he is talking about, you find out that his younger brothers John and Paul (twin 14 year olds) snapped a picture of him smoking and have been threatening to send it to you. They have been blackmailing him into doing some of their chores and giving them some of his allowance.
You talk with Brett about why he shouldn't be smoking and how you wish you hadn't started smoking. From the number of cigarettes that went missing, you are afraid he is already addicted. You tell him you are going to get some nicotine tests and he will be taking them to make sure he isn't smoking anymore.
