I gave up coffin nails 40 years ago when our first child was due. Before that, I'd smoke roll-up's, Capstan Full Strength, Gauloise, Senior Service, Russian cigs, with a tube on the end that you pinched to make a filter, (anyone else remember them?) I tried a pipe for a while but the reality was horrible compared to the pleasant smell from someone else's pipe. Also, the occasional joint, in the 1960's

yes - funny thing that
Guy in Wooler had a tool shop, (and money losing tool club) we young lads were often in there buying tools through the club (never never, more like never ever), any way he used to give us fags "Passing cloud" fat oval things, often wonder about the fags and the guy
