mandy Posted September 22, 2004 Share Posted September 22, 2004 I just caught my Mom sneaking a ciigarette in her room. She has NSCLC stage IIIA, is in the middle of her second round of chemo, and we are meeting today with a thoracic surgeon. She looked so guilty and said that she only smokes a couple of puffs a day when she is stressed out. I sat down with her and told her that I know it must be hard for her to quit and that I will do whatever I can to help her. I am trying to be supportive. I don't want her to feel like I am berating her or belittling her. She is my Mom! But inside I am so dissapointed and angry. I want to go in her room and toss out the smokes, but I am sure she will only buy more. Any advice? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
