Oh, but he was the one doing it. No one can force us to do anything. They most they can do is make us wish we had. Even though she pressured him and manipulated him, I wouldn't let him off the hook by saying she "made" him or that he "had no choice." We always have a choice. People can control our environment, but they can't control us. We can only control ourselves.
