I have an irritating problem with my mother. She just moved over her near me & my husband. At first I thought it was great but now it isn't. She constantly buggs me for $ for cigarettes & I don't smoke but she buggs my husband all the time & he smokes but not as much as she does. She smokes like 3 to 4 packs a day & we just don't have the $ to keep her supply ! I don't know how to explain it to her without offending her or starting a feud.

Well, can you just be honest? Just tell her that you are on a budget and you cannot afford to give her money. If she doesn't have enough money, offer to help her find a job or a program in which she can budget her own money so she can afford this nasty habit.

Or, you could just tell your husband and her to quit:)
