I agree with R42 that there is no stigma associated with smoking in many of the European cities I've been to. One just does or one does not. We are a bit hysterical about it here, that's true. Especially since Americans are hardly avatars of health on so many other fronts.

I also wonder if many celebrities -- the really big ones -- continue to smoke because they are just used to getting their own way. One of the reasons I quit was because it was a hassle to smoke wherever you went. But if you owned a restaurant and someone complained that George Clooney was smoking, which one do you think the owner is going to accommodate? If you're some small time actor trying to make it and you got a bit part in one of the Marvel movies, do you think you'll be there tomorrow if you complain about Chris Evans' second-hand smoke?

When I was in my early 20s I smoked, and so did several of the VPs.

I was promoted over other candidates because those VPs had spent time talking to me over a cigarette break, and knew my strengths and weaknesses.

Smokers are only half as likely to test positive for COVID-19, so it’s working out well for them. I bought nicotine patches a couple of months ago after seeing the research on nicotine and coronavirus susceptibility.

To an extent...but smokers know, and will congregate.

If a couple of people in management smoke, and you can persuade them to “clue you in”, then you have a big advantage over the rest of your group. The only time I’ve ever golfed is with upper management, and only because we had developed a rapport while “sneaking a ciggie”. My lack of golf skills was not only endearing, but gave me a chance to “come out” in a nonchalant manner.

I was dying as I said the words, but they already knew I was gay, so their response was “And...?” They didn’t care, so it was much ado. My immediate supervisor was SO hot in those shorts and polo.

Fond memory.

[quote]My doctor growing up smoked. It totally confused me.

My parents were friends with a doctor who smoked and quit when he was his mid 40s. A friend's mother was a nurse and a heavy smoker for a long time. He mentioned that some of his mom's nurse friends were smokers. When I was in college, I worked as a receptionist at a nursing home for awhile and the head nurse and the doctor on staff were smokers. They used to walk down the street to cafe parking lot to smoke.

A few years back, I was watching old episodes of Trauma:Life in the ER and there was one episode where the crew filmed a trauma surgeon smoking outside the hospital. He said he wasn't a heavy smoker and sometimes smoked before he started his workday and would smoke sometimes after performing long surgeries.

My mother began her nursing career in the 1970s and she told me that smoking was allowed in the lounges on each hospital floor.

Massachusetts recently banned menthol cigarettes because "that's what young people smoke." It was done as a way to curb youth smoking, which surprised me. Times must've changed because when I was a teenager in the 90s nobody smoked menthols. At my high school it was almost 100% Marlboro with a few Camel smokers and that was it.

R145, Someone needs to post that picture of CZJ topless, sunbathing, pregnant and smoking.

As others have said, most actors smoke. It calms them down AND helps them concentrate, so they can learn their lines and come off calm and cool when they're in front of a camera (or an audience).

R111, Short has smoked for the last 50 years, that's why he looks 15 years older than his age. Even with good lighting.

The people who genuinely surprised me are the great dancers from the Golden Age, like Fred Astaire, Donald O'Connor, Ann Miller, Eleanor Powell, etc..

In the 60s everyone smoked, even while they were eating. Gross.

Disappointed, but not surprised to learn that Dermot Mulroney has smoked for 30+ years.

He was so beautiful...now all lined and baggy-eyed...and only 56.

I nipped outside a memorial service once for a smoke, and Carrie Fisher was doing the same thing.

She was short.

We didn’t talk much, because a lot of professional autograph seekers lined up, with stuff for her to sign.

I quit smoking 10 years ago. I really miss it. I also feel like I was a lot more fun & relaxed when I was a smoker. I also miss those spontaneous conversations you would have with other smokers.

One of the worst things was when I would get drunk and bum a cigarette and it would be a menthol. It tasted so disgusting!

I'm surprised when I see younger and seemingly health conscious celebrities are smokers. It shows the the power that nicotine addiction has on some people.

I was fortunate enough to decide to quit cold turkey one day on impulse when I was 23. I haven't put a cigarette to my lips since, and that's over 30 years now. Best decision I ever made. Two friends of mine who said they were going to quit back when I did..... but they still smoke today. One has emphysema (and still smokes) and the other has lost all his teeth.

is it unhealthy to just use patches? Are there any negative side effects to that? The concentration and appetite suppression are appealing.

R99, pretending to smoke for a video is nothing. This is Babs between takes getting her nicotine. And of course she lies about it and claims she was never a smoker. Btw, ALL of the old time vocalists smoked.
