Our expert says:
Maybe he really needs to find an alterative means to unwind. CBT, for instance, can in a couple of sesions teach someone how to unwind non-chemically and safely. And reliably. As you point out, ANY amount of smoking adds to his individual risks of unpleasant disorders, and more so if he is diabetic. Can't you persuade him that while you recognize his wish to unwind, better methods exist, and seeng a therapist could fairly rapidly help him to learn and use them, so that smoking would again become unnecessary for him ?
