Adele’s Smoking Habit Was Worse Than You Might’ve Thought: “I’d Probably Have Died From a Smoking-Related Illness”

Smoking almost ended her career.

Smoking cigarettes are terrible for you, and Adele almost learned that the hard way. She recently sat down with The Daily Mirror to reveal how bad her smoking habit really was.

“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. “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 than reveals that she used to smoke 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. Luckily, she did, and went on to make the record breaking 25.

Don’t smoke kids!
