TMy parents didn't smoke, but one of my grandpas did. When I was a little kid in the early '70s, my mom had some green glass ashtrays in a drawer, and when grandpa would come she'd get them out and he'd sit right there in our living room and puff the room so full of smoke that my eyes burned. And we didn't think anything of it! It almost doesn't seem believable, now.
My parents didn't smoke, but a lot of my friends' parents and my parents' friends did. When I was growing up, a perpetual haze of cigarette smoke hung in the air in many homes and most indoor public spaces. My generation breathed in "secondhand smoke" (a phrase that had yet to be coined) all the time. And we Boomers are the healthiest and longest-living generation in our country's history. So there!
