“I’ve read so many books about smoking and drinking that I’ve decided to give it up.”
“Smoking or drinking?”

smoking – smēķēšana (We give you some vocabulary to help you)
drinking – dzeršana šeit 🙁 alkohola lietošana)
give (gave, given) up – atmest

And on the following page, a translation

”Es esmu izlasījis tik daudz grāmatu par smēķēšanu un dzeršanu, ka nolēmu to atmest.”
”Smēķēšanu vai dzeršanu?”
