No suggestions, but I feel for you, AND your parents. It's an awful situation.

My dad smoked even after he'd been dx'd with emphysema. Just couldn't help himself, and kind of figured why close the barn door when the horse is already gone?

I smoked even after my dad had been dx'd with emphysema, as well.

There is an organization called Overeaters Anonymous, but it's kind of like the joke about how many psychiatrists it takes to change a light bulb--only one, but it has to want to change. If your parents don't decide they want to change, you can't make it happen for them.
