Identifying a Houseplant

Identifying a HouseplantI received this plant from my mom. She doesn't remember the name of this plant. It doesn't have any flowers on it, but the trunk has faded due to tobacco poisoning. I am not sure if this plant will survive, but I've changed as much of the soil as I can to new fresh soil and water it regularly. Any pointers would be great.
