Singer Adele kicked her 20-a day cigarette habit with a secret visit to a London hypnotherapist famous for helping celebrities quit, the DailyMail.com can reveal.

The British singer spent 3 hours with renowned addiction specialist Max Kirsten in August 2015 after five-years of failed attempts to stop.

‘I absolutely loved it, but it’s not that f****** cool when I’m dying from a smoking-related illness and my kid is, like, devastated’, she said.

After losing her voice completely in 2011, canceling shows and undergoing surgery, she was told by doctors to quit her habit or face the end of her career.

She had a £295 session with Harley Street hypnotist Susan Hepburn in 2014 in an attempt to give up for good but relapsed.

Her trip to Max Kirsten’s Knightsbridge clinic came just months before the release of her smash hit single Hello.

Kirsten, author of self-help book Find Yourself to Help Yourself boasts an impressive roll-call of celebrities he has helped to quit, including Ewan Mcgregor (25-a day),Oscar nominee Tom Hardy and even, it is rumoured, Prime Minister David Cameron.

At the time Mcgregor said: ‘I didn’t think I would ever be able to give up and he (Max) made it effortless – very easy’.
