Faithfull Wants To Quite Cigs

Published on March 05, 2007 with No Comments

Marianne FaithfullCancer survivor Marianne Faithfull is desperate to give up her lifelong smoking habit now she’s been given a new lease of life.

The singer and actress was forced to postpone her world tour when she was diagnosed with the disease last September – but was given the all-clear from doctors at the end of 2006.

However, she’s worried that continuing to smoke cigarettes could jeopardise her new-found health.

“I know we all die sometime, but I would like not to be stupid about it. I hardly drink and don’t do drugs but I do smoke,” she says. “I’ve tried everything to give up – hypnotism, acupuncture, patches – and I’ve read Allen Carr’s book on how to stop smoking. But I’ve been smoking since I was 19, and so far nothing has worked. But I’m determined to kick it.”

She added: “I’m going to take a new pill when I get back to Paris to get off cigarettes. I’ve just turned 60, I am a singer and I am still smoking. How stupid is that? But I’ve been very fortunate – I have been given another life to live.”
