My mum has been smoking for a while now. She says she only has 1 a day but has developed a really nasty sounding cough. She’s been to the Dr and had antibiotics etc but its not clearing up. Makes me want to vomit every time I hear it. She had a reaction to some dirt particles in the air when they were doing earth works at their place a few years ago and ended up in hospital on a ventilator. That was the scariest thing I have ever seen! I don’t want to ever have to see that again or now for my daughter to have to see her beloved Grammy like that. She promised me she would quit when my daughter was born but its almost 3.5years later and she’s still going. She says it helps calm her from all the stress in her life but surely there has got to be something better?! I can’t stand even the slightest smell of cigarette smoke so have ever smoked myself, I don’t know the addictive nature of it.
Does anyone have any suggestions of ways I can talk to her about giving it up? Or if you have given up yourself, what did you find was the best way to do it?
I realise that she has to want to do it for herself too but if there is any way I can encourage her then that would be great!! Thanks
