Singer P!nk has opened up about how she overcame her smoking addiction and also managed to give up drugs. P!nk claims that she is the kind of women who, when she sets her mind to something, she sticks to it, which helped her to quit the drugs.
P!nk explained, “It wasn't to the point of going to the hospital, but I remember getting up off the floor in the morning - and that was the last time I ever touched a drug again. It was also the day a DJ offered to let me sing on hip-hop night. His only caveat was that I couldn't do drugs, so I didn't. That's the thing with me - once I make up my mind, I'm done.”
She then went on to reveal how she took up smoking and was addicted by the age of 13, when she was smoking a pack a day. However, P!nk has since dug deep and found the strength to quit smoking and she puts most of that down to becoming a mother.
P!nk added, “I quit when I got pregnant by reading Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking. That really worked for me. (And now) Willow makes me not want to (smoke). And besides, unlike before, cigarettes smell repulsive to me.”
