Subject: I need help making my mom quit smoking
Date: October 17, 2004 at 6:38 pm PST

My mom has smoke most of her life. About 8 years my dad quit and he is a much healthier person now. My mom's health is decreasing so much. When she gets a cold, its so much worse for her she coughs so hard sometimes she throws up. She is not only hurting herself but she is hurting me. She has smoked all of my life. My lungs aren't the greatest and I have never even touched any of it. In my family cancer is there, and has always been. I have lost people in my family to cancer. About 9 months ago I lost my uncle to cancer, I was so upset and got depressed for awhile. I am so much closer to my mom then I was him and I don't think I could ever lose her. I don't think I could ever lose anyone in my family to cancer again. I don't know what I would do if I lost her. I try so hard to get her to stop, and my brothers and my dad do to, but her excuse all the time is she isn't ready to quit. But when will she be? She needs to do it, not only for herself but everyone around her too, I need help. Please someone help me. I need my mother.
Please email me with any suggestions!
