Remember when it was the big thing T.V, newspapers, billboards and any other means of getting it to the smokers.

I saw this picture earlier one of my all time favourite sports cars from my youth but definitely not my favourite brand.

The F1 cars always used to be referred to as "Marlboro-Mclarens" back in the day.
(Along with the the Rothmans Honda's, not forgetting Rizla Racing!)

What about the St Bruno adverts where the big bald bruiser opens the gates

I can't find it now, but there's a video about somewhere from the 50's of how if you save someone from drowning one of the treatments should be a cigarette. 😂

The JPS Lotus cars were gorgeous - Marlboro red - I smoked them for a bit but Embassy Number 1 was my preferred brand before I quit the weed for good well over 30 years ago. I have to say I still miss it in the way that an alcoholic, however long dry, will know they are still an alcoholic. I see myself not as a non/ ex smoker, but rather 'a smoker who just hasn't had one in a very long time'.

I remember when I was a kid, buying my dad 200 fags for Xmas, in the fancy Christmas wrapper. That'd cost a fortune these days!

I quit cigarettes over 15 years ago now (20 odd Marlboro reds a day), then took up vaping 3 years ago, and now have stopped that since the start of this year!

I do still puff on the occasional pipe around the campfire though, wind permitting of course!!
