Oprah saved my life!

Queen Latifah has attributed an episode of oprah Winfrey’s talk show with helping her to finally quit smoking. The actress and rapper is a devoted viewer of the programme and was shocked into taking action against her damaging habit after seeing a presentation given by a guest doctor on the show. I was struggling to quit smoking around this time, really mentally struggling with it, physically struggling with it. I was up to a pack-and-a-half a day, sometimes two packs a day. The doctor showed a healthy lung and then he showed a lung that had lung cancer. It was frightening.' The buxom singer also says that another reason is to make her mother proud of her, I hope to never smoke again. I like myself as a non-smoker. That episode of oprah may have, quite possibly, saved my life.
