Lily Allen: 'I don't want to be a smoky cokey mum'

Hitmaker Lily Allen has opened up about her decision to stop smoking, which came about after a close family member sadly died. 

Speaking to Beat magazine, the 'Hard Out Here' songstress explained that she decided to quit the habit after she lost her godfather to liver cancer:

"My godfather died three weeks ago, from liver cancer. I got a call from his son outside the hospital, saying, 'I think you should get here'."

She continued: "And I looked at my cigarette and thought, 'What am I doing?' It's the thing about having kids, you start thinking about what you're going to leave behind. And we all know how much our parents mould who we are. I want to do it as best I can. I don't want to be a smoky cokey mum. I hope I can keep it up. I really do love smoking. I find it glamorous, I find it sexy, cool. It just kills you."
