This person had been coached that he needed to change his behavior in regards to tobacco use due to related health complications it was causing his body. The provider shared an analogy with the landlord that reframed the impact of smoking to his body: “Imagine a tenant (tobacco) whom you had to pay to live in your house (body). Imagine that you paid them to be there while they soiled your furniture, wrecked your carpets, damaged the walls and roof… Would you call that a good deal for you?” (Mark Tyrell)
