Not that I would endorse smoking, but the bullying of smokers (I am a non-smoker by the way) gets to levels where it irks me. That was my point.

Well..I can imagine the feedback..as I came from a home, where both parents, smoked like there was no tomorrow...I never took up 'fags' or
good olde cigarettes ...I do love a fat cuban cigar from time to time...so I'm sorta a 'light' smoker...lol...if such a animal exists..

I don't have a issue with smokers...it's a personal choice...and of course, there's a possible health issues down the line..i.e. shortness of breath,
misc cancers, and other health issues..I have noticed, that many young people are non smokers....good for them..bad for companies that push smoking..and keep in mind, the period up to new Avengers, smoking was considered elegant ....

I agree. Live and let live. As an ex-drinker, I can see alcohol going the same way. Let people choose their own poison! It must only be a matter of time before they find some long-term health problem from "vaping".

I watch a lot of 1970s drama and people smoke and drink a lot (real cigarettes as "props" but the booze is probably cold tea!)... it adds to the verisimilitude and is something that people making "retro" drama now, set in the 60s and 70s, that the makers often forget to include, especially smoking, at least in the volumes seen in reality.
