In an interview with The DailyMail, Adele confessed about her tobacco addiction that could have cost her her life.
On friday, December 18, the British songstress revealed that she finally quit smoking because she feared that the bad habit might kill her. “If I’d carried on smoking, I’d probably have died from a smoking-related illness, and I think that’s really bad,” Adele told The Mirror. “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 reportedly used to smoke 25 cigarettes a day and back in 2011 she was even forced to cancel shows after she lost her voice during a live radio session in France. After that she had surgery and was told by doctors to quit her habit or she would have to face the end of her career.
Her 3-year-old son Angelo is also a big part of the reason why she decided to quit smoking. In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, she said “I absolutely loved it [smoking], but it’s not that f**king cool when I’m dying from a smoking-related illness and my kid is, like, devastated”.
That’s a really good resolution Adele !
