Try a tripod or the self timer option, otherwiseyou might have to get a camera with image stabilizer or a slr.

If you don't want to use a tripod (and it's a good suggestion) you can experiment with increasing the ISO setting in aperture priority mode. Set the largest aperture you have (smallest f/number) and crank up your ISO so that you get a shutter speed faster than the speeds you were using when you get the blurry photos. You should be able to view the EXIF data on most image viewers/editors to get the shutter speed used during the bad shots.

The downside about increasing ISO is that you'll increase the digital noise levels, too. If you can get an ISO that's high enough to let you use a shutter speed that won't blur (or won't blur as much), you might find the lack of blur offset by a major increase in noise. Play around and try to use the lowest ISO that gives you a shutter speed that gives you better results than you've been getting. Try to squeeze the shutter release button smoothly, too. Don't jab it. An aggresive shutter release finger can jerk the whole camera and add significantly to blur due to camera shake.

If you can't find an ISO/shutter speed combination that works for you, you're stuck with using the flash, using a tripod, or getting a camera with better low-light capabilities.

Keep in mind that a slow shutter sped on a tripod will only eliminate blur due to camera shake, it won't help with subject motion blur. Only a higher shutter speed will lessen blur from subject motion.
