London: Adele has returned to her old habits of smoking and drinking after she found sticking to a healthy regime "boring".
The British singer had kicked her tobacco addiction earlier this year besides giving up alcohol, caffeine and spicy food as part of a new healthy-living plan.
But the 23-year-old, who insists life was "boring" post the quit, is not bothered that her voice sounded better while she was away from tobacco, reported Daily Star online.
"I gave up smoking for two months. It was grim. I had laryngitis about a week before the album came out and it was so frightening. I stopped smoking, drinking, eating or drinking citrus, spicy foods and caffeine. It was so boring. When my album went to number one here and in America, I just sat in my room and watched TV because I couldn`t go out and talk to anyone.”
"My voice was better when I wasn`t smoking. Within a week I noticed it had changed, but I`d rather my voice be a bit bad so I can have a laugh," said Adele.
