In an interview Faithfull was asked about smoking and drinking, and she answered:

“I’m anti-smoking now… I’m a simple girl, really. It was just heroin (I was addicted to). If you go into the seven deadly sins, things like drugs, alcohol, sex, smoking, that’s all over. Sex, who knows? But as far as I can tell, I think it’s probably over, yes.”
