    Bloody marvellous.

    Everywhere you went, it was accepted and no-one batted an eyelid.

    Nowadays it's quite the reverse and yet whatever you've been told, there don't seem to be any fewer smokers, they just find themselves outside. It's already killed the British pub and why they couldn't have said that there had to be smoking pubs and non-smoking pubs I don't know.

    More of the nanny state I suppose, taking away the right of the individual to make his or her own life choices.

    It was a more honest society back then. Now people are not afraid of what is kiling them in the air, food, water and their hygiene, but they are afraid of innocent smoking.
    It was great back then, there was less cancer and a better and  more honest diagnosis.
    There was more fun in bars and a better crowd to party with. People were more human and less robot like. Do you know what it is like to talk to a person who is afraid of smoking nowadays in a bar? So booooring, most real people stay home in after hours partties.
    There was more respect back then, nowadays GMO baloney invaded the education system.
    Society was better informed and people resisted GMO and requested labels. After they took those companies that put labels on their products down, people became afraid.
    So, people were less afraid back then and healthier, more honest and fun.
