Yes, Your Wife can be helped to overcome her addiction after understanding what exactly smoking & drinking means to her. It can all begin with counseling where she could find an alternative goal & certain motivation to go through deaddiction routine which would be physical withdrawal followed by emotional & psychological withdrawal & development of alternative habits in a supportive environment. If I recommend a professional here, it would be just my point of view and need not be the best option for you. You would find a number of psychiatrists and psychologists listed here to pick from. Feel free to shortlist a few, visit them and check if there is a mutual match. What matters most in the whole process is your unconditional love & understanding which will bring her out from the virtual world she has created for herself. Good Luck.
