I was listening to an old radio show and I heard one of their commercials. It is hard to believe that at one time doctors were used to sell cigarettes. In the commercial they polled doctors and the cigarette doctors smoked the most was Camels. This gave the impression that Camels were the healthiest. In fact they were so healthy they challenged people to smoke them for thirty days. After those thirty days they would find out that Camels didn’t irritate the throat.
It seems like a hundred years since cigarettes were everywhere. Ashtrays and smoking lamps were common place.
Recently I was at a convenience store and saw a pack was going for around $5. This made me laugh because even though I don’t smoke I used to sell cartons at a store for around $7.50. (It was less than a hundred years ago.)
Any strange cigarette memories out there?
