RuPaul’s Drag Race star Alyssa Edwards has sent out a PSA to her fans on how to achieve fabulousness in life, and one of the B-I-G choices she says you have to make is to say no to smoking.
In a new article for the Advocate, the tongue popping queen writes that ‘smoking will kill your flawlessness’ and urges people to throw those cigarettes away.
Alyssa also very candidly spells out some of the harmful effects of smoking tobacco.
‘It takes work to create looks for a lifetime, and if you think I’m gonna ruin all that with the wrinkles and yellow skin and missing teeth that smoking can cause, you are cuckoo crazy,’ she says. ‘I stay body-ody-beautiful by staying away from the chemicals and smoke that come with every cigarette.’
‘Nobody enjoys breath that smells like a rancid ashtray,’ she adds. ‘Or a wig that smells like you picked it up off the floor.’
She encourages people to say no when a cigarette is passed to them:
‘And if you’re thinking, It’s just one cigarette, I’m just going to ask you why. Why start a habit that can ruin your looks, become an addiction, eat away at your insides, and cause all kinds of misery for those around you? Mama says, just say no.’
Lastly, she asks fans to choose wisely.
‘Choose wisely, boys and girls. Being flawless and living a happy life is all about showing up with the best you.’
