I ****ing hate cigarettes

My mom calls me about a week ago and pretty much goes off on me because she hasn't seen my kids since March. I tried to explain to her like I have a hundred times before that we dont come around much because I can't stand her cigarette smoke infested house. She acts like Im crazy and honestly believes its not that harmful. She lives in a small two bedroom house, refuses to open the windows, and the smoke is so thick you can see clouds of it all over the house. If I ask her to air it out before we come and not smoke while we're there she pulls the old "when you pay my rent I'll stop smoking" card.

As a kid growing up I had a lot of health problems that pretty much ended about a year after I moved out on my own. I remember being embarrassed at church because my clothes smelled like I had just walked out of a bar all the time. My friends used to give me shit about it too and nobody ever wanted to come over because of it...that's how bad it was/is.

So feeling bad I took the kids today and stayed for an hour (couldn't handle anymore). Now I have the worst migraine Ive ever had and I can still taste the shit in the back of my throat. I love my mom to death, and my kids love their grandma but I don't know what else to do. How do you convince a 72 year old woman set in her ways and that's been smoking since she was a teenager the shit is toxic to us? I dont want to miss out on her last years, and I dont want her to miss her grand kids growing up but I also cant handle her disgusting habit.

About 35-40 minutes. I still would if she would leave but she always has some excuse. She's an unreasonable old lady that will never change. That's why Im so distraught about what to do. Do I just go over there, suffer, and risk mine and my kids' health or do I only visit a few times/year like I have been until she dies then regret not spending more time with her?

If she is making it so hard and basically making seeing her grandchildren a one way proposition, then that's on her. I'd keep on doing what you're doing. If she refuses to compromise then it's on her. No regrets.

Easy to say no regrets until she's gone and the opportunity to spend time with her is no longer there. It's a rough spot for him.

It's an unfortunate situation but a little smoke from time to time isn't going to kill your kids.

All he is asking her to do is not smoke when he brings the grandchildren over. If she is too ****ing hardheaded to do that and refuses to do anything else to be able to see the kids, she can **** right off.

Ive been 3 times this year, will see her on TG and Xmas too without the smoke. I'd like to see her every week but I dont know if I can handle it that often...it literally makes me sick to my stomach, gives me a migraine, and the kids complain the whole time.
