Most people tend to want to know what bits of good advice successful celebrities can pass on or what pearls of wisdom others have given the celebrity in the past that helped them in their careers.

Access Hollywood wanted to know something different … they wanted to know what the worst piece of advice the coaches on "The Voice" had ever received.

Blake Shelton's worst advice wasn't just bad, it could have been deadly.    

"I had a producer tell me one time when I was younger to start smoking in order to develop more of the rasp," Blake remembered. "He was like, 'Maybe if you started smoking you could get some of that cool …' and I tried it for like three months."

Yeah, taking up smoking is definitely not a good piece of career advice.
