Queensland woman Krystel Spicer will stop at nothing to curb her nicotine addiction: she’s chained herself to her bed for the next three weeks.
Prepared with cans of tinned food and a microwave within reach, Spicer was compelled to act after a pap smear discovered abnormal cells.
“After the results came in I just looked at my daughter and I said, ‘well I’m just about to treat everyone really badly because I’m going on a chain,’” Spicer told 7 News.
“I tried to quit once, I quit once, for four days and was told I was treating people badly here and they wished I would start smoking again,” she explains. “And I wonder how many people are asked that by their loved ones?”
The 20-year-old confessed her family thinks she’s “insane”, but says, “I’ll take life over mad any day.”
