Just thinking cherry lips most photos seam to be of ladies holding cigarettes and not exhaling smoke just wondering if holding a cigarette is seen to be more glam that smoking them!

I was lucky -- found out why I could never inhale when I tried to smoke cigarettes back in the day: I was allergic to cigarette smoke.

Probably the chemicals they put in it, because, if you blow cigar smoke or pipe tobacco in my face, it doesn't do a thing. But I will get a headache, wheeze and sniffle around burning cigarettes.

So, no looking cool like James Dean did in Rebel Without a Cause, no looking sexy like Simone Signoret did when she "French inhaled" in Room at the Top, no looking world-weary and cynical as Bogart did in a number of his films, no looking romantic as Bette Davis did with Paul Heindrid when they swapped cigs in Now Voyager.

For me, a life without glamour -- or so I thought. My glamorous friends all quit; that is, those who are still alive. My best friend is dead -- at the age of 46, oat cell carcinoma of the lungs.

I do occasionally light up a cigar -- the ones that are made with pipe tobacco and flavored. I liked the photo of Demi Moore that appeared on the cover of Cigar Afficianado some years back. And I do drink martinis.

There's hope for the old girl yet....

Cigarette girls

Does anybody have any pics of cigarette girls? I haven't had much luck finding any. I'd especially llike some from the 50s-60s. Here's an older one:

Cigarettes draw attention to the mouth, and the hand, maybe you only like female ones?

:eek:fftopic: Lore has it that Paul would drink 1 case (24 bottles) of beer per day. He must have had a very fast metabolism.

I smoke on occasion, very rarely though, and if I do it has to be luxury cigarettes - those being Nat Sherman's Hint of Mint or Fantasias. Why? Because if I AM going to smoke a few times a year, it is going to be quality and you don't get better quality than Nats. For me, smoking a Nat Sherman every few months or so is like having a great glass of champagne or or Cognac. It's not something I do all the time.

I cannot imagine what it would like to be addicted to smoking. The urge to smoke all the time just never occurs to me. I also don't make a public show of smoking, in fact most of my friends have no clue that I have one now and again, and that's how I like it.

You should have let me know. I would have sent you home with a few decent cigars. ;) :D

Do I detect a bit of politely-translated "Life's too short to waste it on the cheap crap" there?;)
