British singer Adele has said she gave up smoking when she came down with laryngitis but soon became 'bored'.

The Someone Like You hitmaker admitted that she would prefer to risk her voice than quit the bad habit.

The 23-year-old told British Glamour magazine: "I gave up smoking for two months. It was f***ing 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 or caffeine. It was so f***ing boring.

"When my album went to number one [in the UK] and in America, I just sat in my room and watched telly 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 s*** so I can have a f***ing laugh!"

This month the star was struck down by another bout of laryngitis forcing her to cancel her remaining tour dates in the US.
