Smoking cigarettes wasn’t a sustainable lifestyle choice for the woman who is currently one of the world’s most popular singers.
“If I’d carried on smoking, I’d probably have died from a smoking-related illness, and I think that’s really bad,” she said.
The “Hello” singer, 27, added, “If I was dying from lung cancer, I would have potentially given it to myself, and that wouldn’t be something I’d be proud of.”
Adele said she smoked an average of 25 cigarettes a day and, as a result, lost her voice and was forced to cancel shows in 2011. After undergoing an operation, doctors said her career would soon be over if she didn’t quit smoking.
“I absolutely loved it, but it’s not that f—ing cool when I’m dying from a smoking-related illness and my kid is, like, devastated,” she said.
