I mean, boomers, when they were late teens/early 20, were all doing drugs in fields, listening to bands, making free love, not showering, not working, spitting on returning Vietnam Vets, and damn sure not doing anything like paying into SS. AMIRITE?
No. I'm 61 and never touched a cigarette, but I did take a couple of tokes on a "lefthanded" cigarette once. It didn't interest me or the guys/girls I hung with. The recession of 76-80 was pretty rough on people here in Steeltown, but this Eagle Scout swore he'd NEVER be in that predicament. Some of my classmates lost brothers in Nam, and would never ridicule any of those who returned.
