How can I make my mom stop smoking?

She doesn't know that I know she smokes.

The best thing for you to do is to confront her. That has to be the first step if she thinks you don't know. After that, when you've cleared the air with her, you should talk to her about stopping, or if she can't just stop cold turkey, getting treatment would be a wise choice.

There are many ways to have your Mother stop smoking - talk to her about your concerns, and then offer a number of different ways to help quit (the patch, etc.).

If she believes you don't know, then she is obviously embarrased and does not want you to find out. You can try placing yourself to make it more inconvenient for her to try to hide it, and thus helping her cut down. If it becomes too difficult to sneak away, she may give up or admit it. One step closer.

Tell her the concerns of smoking not just from a medical perspective, but from your own perspective and how it is affecting you and your life.

If she doesn't know it's time to tell her. Calmly sit down and talk to her about it, tell her you're worried about her and would like her to quit.
