“I was smoking 15 joints a day. No tobacco. A day,” she said in her new interview with Attitude. “It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip. I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself and then sleeping it off and then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was.”
So, how did the singer stop herself?
“It wasn’t until I was with Marina and she said, ‘Okay you’re coming to my house, no television, no computer, no marijuana, no nothing, no food. For three days, art only. You eat only art,” she explained. ”I cold-turkeyed. For weeks and weeks I didn’t smoke at all.”
But Gaga isn’t completely over week just yet. The singer added that she still indulges in her herb once in a while: “Now I smoke a little bit at night, just you know, for fun — but not to cope. That’s the difference. Marina was the only person who could get me to do that and it was not intended to be rehab.”
