13. Seriously, loafie:
Sit down with him. Tell him you're pissed. Tell him WHY you're pissed (we men can be dense sometimes). If I know anything about Magic Rat, he'll probably be totally ashamed and apologetic -- and I'm sure that he'll mean it, too.

The secret is not to pretend you're not mad. That would just be another lie. Admit to your feelings, but do try to be supportive -- if you want him to quit, and he wants to quit, this is something you can do together -- who knows, maybe it could bring you closer.

Stick to your guns -- make sure he knows it's not okay for him to lie to you. At the same time, you need to know how hard it is to quit, and that he WILL stumble sometimes. When he does, he needs to be secure enough to admit it to you, and you need not to judge him too harshly.

Soon enough, all will be roses again. :)
