    my mum wants to borrow some money from me......60 quid, cos shes struggling with money
    im on income surport at the moment, and i give her over 100 quid a month from that
    i hardly ever have any money for myself, and was hoping to buy some new clothes with the money i got
    she smokes alot and drinks alot, and i dont really wanna give her money so she could fund for more of that
    i feel im being very selfish not giving it to her and we just had a big arguement over it

    Instead of giving her the money directly, why don't you buy food or pay a bill or something? But if you seriously do not want to give her anymore because it leaves you short or will enable her, then you are not being selfish at all.
