Honestly, Amy, what can possibly be so bad in 1945? Word War II is over and everyone's celebrating. Why be so negative?
Maybe not being able to breathe has somethin' to do with it. Oh-my-gawd everyone is smokin' all the time like it's rilly cool!
Seriously, you gotta get me outta here.
Though in the 21st century relatively few physicians smoke, in the 1940s it is not unusual to see a doctor smoking.
Indeed, smoking is socially accepted for both men and women in the United States and Canada at this time.
Okay, Amy. I'm glad I finally have your attention.
The 1970s will bring forth information in print that list the health warnings of the danger of smoking cigarettes.
In the 21st century, legislation has been passed in many locales to prohibit smoking in public places.
In Canada and the United States, smoking rates continue to drop.
