• Smoking helps me relax.
• It is something that I do with my friends.
• I am afraid I will gain weight if I stop, so I guess smoking helps me not gain weight.
• I like to smoke when I am bored.
• Smoking helps break up long drives.
• At work, my cigarette breaks are sometimes the only time during the day when I get some peace.
Look at all those reasons this client liked to smoke. If she didn’t address them, it is very unlikely that she would be able to stop.
