    Lighten Up About Lighting Up

    The rulers are sissies afraid of the Marlboro Man. That's what's behind all this harassment and cigarette tax.

    Players' Perils

    When Jane Fonda played a famous chain-smoker, Lillian Hellman, in Julia, she started smoking for the role and got hooked on it. Also, Robert De Niro may have wrecked his physique fattening up for Raging Bull.

    As long as you are not lighting up around me, I'm good with it. If you want to stick shit in your mouth and suck in the fumes.. that's okay by me as long as you are not around me when you do it.

    Watch some films from the early 90s and late 80s.

    That is a real culture shock for kids, because cell phones and the internet still weren't a thing, and many of us millennials grew up during that time.

    There was a form of the internet in the '60s and I spent a lot of time on the internet using electronic bulletin boards in the 80s.

    I started smoking in 1951 -- at age fifteen. Back then almost everyone smoked and a teen-age boy who didn't smoke was regarded as a kid by girls. If I knew then what everyone knows now I would never have started smoking, but back then cigarette ads featured signed testimonials by thousands of physicians who endorsed it as being "good for you."

    And the most popular celebrities of the era, including Ronald Reagan, said it was the thing to do

    It's amazing how the top executives of the cigarette companies got away with killing so many people and making so many deathly sick.
