    Overlaps with Radish Cure.

    The Donald Duck short "Donald's Happy Birthday" has Donald forcing his nephews to smoke a whole box of cigars that they bought. The trope gets subverted though because Donald learns too late that the cigars were meant for him as a birthday present!

    Truth In Television: My grandfather did this to my father. Worked too. My father says he was so sick that he never wanted to go near a cigarette again.

    Unless we consider smoking a subtrope worth its own page, how is this not Radish Cure?

    Yes, it's definitely a subtrope.

    Spoofed in an episode of The Simpsons where Bart is helping Fat Tony smuggle cigarettes. Homer finds the enormous stash in his room and decides to get him to smoke every last one of them as punishment.

    I don't think this needs to be any more than a special mention in the Radish Cure description.
