Fags in the oldern daze ;)

Recommended Posts

About 200 years ago when I was 7 Smile I smoked cigarettes more or less most folk did in the 70s era it was great down the boozer buying 2 pints and getting change from a quid yer mates would turn up and crash the fags most of the time Benson & Hedges,I was posh then and took a fancy to 20 Rothmans

and Camel lights my favourite brands there where many brands No10 No6 JPS Blue Black and Red Embassy all sorts of quality brands for not very much spondooly.

The question is what was your brand or brands I was Rothmans among the odd Park drive and Craven A until the prices went silly and the tobacco went cheep and nasty.

I quit in 2000 and still miss um would never smoke again though them days are long gone.now swilling ale pint well that's another story...........Sup up

Consulate, Benson and Hedges, Picadilly,No7, Dunhill when I was being posh. Those muliticoloured one that used to be side by side and you got 50 in the pack, I think.

I even used to have a cigarette case, oooh the sophistication of the 80's. I'd never go back to smoking quit years ago.

It was the best thing I ever did for my skin and looks, that and sun block and not sunbathing anymore!! party

I hate the smell now and its just revolting when someone talks to you and they smoke now, the breath is just awful..

Those are the ones Very Happy I was a very sophisticated 18yr old!! lol

Dunhill was my fave, you could either get them in a normal pack of 20 or you could get them side by side flat pack.

It won't let me copy a pic Sad

5 Park Drive initially, started when I was 9! then on to Kensitas then Benson & Hedges, gave up for 10 years then started on little cigars every now and again and now I'm hooked on them but trying to cut down, now down to about 4 a day, guess I'm gonna have to try and kick them soon (maybe after Christmas!) wish I'd never started again head bang
