Adele has revealed that she quit smoking because she feared it would kill her.
She said: “If I’d carried on smoking I’d probably have died from a smoking-related illness and I think that’s really bad.
“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 had been smoking 25 cigarettes a day when she had to cancel shows in 2011 after losing her voice.
Adele quit smoking in 2011 after an operation doctors told her that her career could be over if she did not stop smoking.
Her dad, Marc Evans, 53, has also had bowel cancer.
They are believed to have mended their stormy relationship and got back together during his battle against the disease.
