Selfish mother now thinks I should help with her monthly expenses. I don't know what to do.

Asked by

My mom was always selfish. She had wasted money for cigarettes, casinos, cash in insurance policy, sold cemetery plot, etc. Now she thinks that I should help her with monthly expenses. She puts me on guilt trips if I don’t. She has stressed me and my husband so much. I don’t know what to do anymore.
