I have this problem with my MIl. She is almost 70 and apparently has smoked for 40 plus yrs. so yeah, it's been a losing battle. We see her rarely and she only lives about 15 minutes away. A handful of times a yr max.
I haven't found a solution yet unfortunately. DH says he has tried to talk to her but I am losing patience as our second son is due to arrive soon. She will not be snuggling our son if she smells like smoke, which she will, so it should be a super fun hospital visit when she shows up. DH just won't follow through with her. This time, I will. I should have for our first DS but I let myself get shut down by DH about it.
