Can somebody help with this. I always wondered where smoking came from and why so many people smoke. Its been everywhere and I found out that in the 50s and 60s that even teenagers as young as 13-14 years of age started smoking and that there was no restrictions to smoking as in today. I also want to know whether men who were smoking at that time were seen as appealing to women?
Back then, no one knew of the health dangers of smoking. It was seen as cool because it made someone look and maybe feel sophisticated. Kids emulated the adults. They always do. They wanted ot appear grown up. In some cases, it gave an aura of being 'bad'. Women are attracted to bad boys men are attracted to bad girls though I would guess that they won't marry them.
Cigarettes then also were not laden with the chemicals they are today. The tobacco is sprayed. The paper contains chemicals that keeps it burning so the cigarette doesn't go out. There's a reason they're so addicting.
