Lynn's Comments: Everyone smoked when I was a kid. It was cool to have a cigarette in your mouth--you looked like a movie star. At the corner store we could buy packets of candy cigarettes. They were sticky and gritty and tasted vaguely like peppermint. If it was cold enough outside, our breath turned to steam and we'd pretend we were lighting up for real. When my brother and I finally scored the real thing, I was surprised to discover how horrible they were. How anyone gets "hooked" is beyond me!
