You are a wonderful, thoughtful, caring daughter! I am sure you were afraid to approach your mom about the smoking not knowing the reaction you would get.
I am so glad that she is going to take that first step. Look at it this way, even if she manages to cut down considerably, it's a good start!
I quit 2 yrs ago the night I had my heart attack and it is still a struggle but I know better.
Hope it goes well for your mom at her appointment.
I used Wellbutrin and it did the trick for me and I was 2packs a day when I stopped cold turkey. Your mom will be saving a bunch of money as well. God Bless you.
