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.
