Need help stopping my mom from smoking cigarettes?

I have tried everything possible to get my mom to stop smoking, but she always comes up with an illogical excuse. I have had conversation after conversation about the effects of smoking to her and every one around her, the cost of smoking, and every thing else in the book, but she just refuses to even try. Has anyone else been in this situation before? and what did you do, or what can I do to stop my mom from smoking?

    Unfortunately, quitting smoking is incredibly hard, and if she doesn’t have the desire to quit, she won’t. The only thing you can do, is ask her to not smoke around you, because she is making you smoke by doing it around you. Ask her to smoke outside. I’m sorry for your situation.

    You can tell her my story see if it helps-

    Both of my parents have smoked my entire life. I tried to get them to quit my entire life.I tried everything I stomped on their cartons and flushed them down the toilette. I bought them the gum and made them fake cigarettes to smoke. My freshman year of college, first semester, my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. Second semester she passed away. The following summer my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. He passed away my sophmore year. Neither one of them got to see me graduate from college or get married or have babies. Ask your mom how she feels about missing out on the important stuff. I know it’s hard but don’t give up. Keep trying and eventually it will click, but it has to be her choice, she has to want it or it will never work. Good Luck

    well i haven’t been in that position with my mom but i have gone through it with my girlfriend. i have argued with her for the past three years for her to quit smoking. The more i told her the more she did it behind my back. i was getting to the point where i was just going to forget it. i recently found these awesome smokeless cigarettes that i bought her and she tried them and liked them. i mean she is still getting the nicotine but she isn’t getting all the disgusting tar and cyanide that comes with the smoke. She actually loves them and i don’t mind that she even smokes these. they work great. get ur mom a pack and give them to her. Ps. she will actually save money with these also. check them out and good luck

    Get her an electronic cigarette. Your mom will love it, and she will be smoking that thing instead of a regular one.

    If you are a nonsmoker who knows the dangers of smoking, you likely feel frustrated when your friends and loved ones continue to smoke. What can you do to help them quit? Nagging, begging, coercion, and ridicule seldom meet with success. Neither do condescending lectures. Instead of quitting, the smoker may reach for a cigarette to ease the emotional pain these tactics may cause. So try to understand how difficult it is to quit and that for some it is much harder than it is for others.

    You can’t make a person quit smoking. The inner strength and conviction to quit must come from the person who smokes. You need to find loving ways to encourage and support a desire to quit.

    How can you do that? At the right time, you might express your love for the person and say that you are concerned about his or her smoking habit. Explain that you will be there to support any decision to quit. Of course, if this approach is used too often, it will lose its effectiveness and meaning.

    What might you do if your loved one does decide to quit? Keep in mind that he or she may have withdrawal symptoms, including irritability and depression. Headaches and difficulty in sleeping might be problems too. Remind your loved one that these symptoms are only temporary and are signs that the body is adjusting to a new and healthy equilibrium. Be cheerful and positive. Express how happy you are that he or she is quitting. Throughout the withdrawal period, help your loved one avoid stressful situations that could lead to a relapse.

    What if there is a relapse? Try not to overreact. Be compassionate. View the situation as a learning experience for both of you, making it more likely that the next attempt will be a success.
