Unfortunately, at her age with her heart condition and drinking/smoking habits, she may not live much longer. The odds are really against her. It's an awful situation to have to watch your parent's health deteriorate because of their bad choices in lifestyle and can't do anything about it.. my mom had a heart attack and other health issues at 43. She refused to stop drinking, smoking, and eating fast food. Finally at 54, she has stopped both but only because she started going to church. She claims gold helped her quit. Unfortunately, you can't force your mother to quit. All you can do is talk to her, tell her you love her and don't want to lose her and for her to please take better care of herself so you can continue to have her in your life. I hope she listens. Wish you and your mother luck.
