Is it just me or has this drastically changed from when I was growing up? My entire family smoked & smoked aggressively. I can remember holidays as a child where it was tough to find the tree through the smoke if it weren't for the lights on it. When was the turning point? Before I had my first child I smoked. I was, I suppose, what you would call a 'social smoker'. However, in retrospect I was just a smoker. Was it after the late late 90's that people started to consider that smoking around children was an epic issue or did it have more to do with economic status?
