In this scene, Sarah uses assertive communication. This works well and Mike and Kat understand.
Look I'm sorry. But my mom has always told me to not use cigarettes, because if you don't then you will less likely get cancer, your mouth is healthier, you will be happier, you will make better life choices, and you will save a lot of money on tobacco products. So thank you but no.
