“I stopped smoking because I felt it was hurting me. I became aggressive, bad tempered and more antisocial than I already am. It took me a while to understand this, because I really like it. But for my spiritual path, my inner search, too it wasn’t adding up. So I stopped,” she clarified at the time.
