I have grown up in the age where smoking was acceptable at one time. I could remember when there were ashtrays on each table in restaurants. Then first came the no smoking sections, now you can’t even smoke on the beach. So I would ask why did the government take fifty percent of every pack of cigarettes? And placing advertisement everywhere you went and in most magazines… Now they tell me I can’t smoke on the beach… I know that smoking is bad for me, however I like it. I would just like say I am, a product of my environment.
