Hello, my name is Holli, and my mom smokes. My purpose here is mainly to better understand the mind of a smoker, and for tips on getting her to get help. My mom has smoked since she was in her early 20's and is now in her early 50's. In my lifetime she has tried to quit twice, each attemped proved futile. She tried the gum, but gave up because she didn't like the flavor. She tried the patch, but had to stop because she was allergic to it. One of the major problems with my mom is that she has severe allergies to medicines. Doctors don't know exactly what all she is allergic to, so it's hard for her to take prescriptions. I really want my mom to stop smoking, for her and me. I want my mom to be healthy, and i want her to live longer. Please help me to understand her refusal to quit, and help me to help and understand her.
