Less than 100 years later nothing had changed.
Vintage ad from the 1940's:

"It probably acts by allaying commencing irritation which, if allowed to increase, would end in inflammation ...."
That should win some sort of journalism award for stating the painfully obvious.
That's a new one to me! The one time I smoked it actually irritated my throat, perhaps I had an inflammation already!
But I gave it 21 tries, the one pack of cigarettes I have ever bought (for myself) in my life!
Can't say I've ever tried it before, but how I do rather enjoy all the old ad's from the 40's & 50's, classic pieces of Americana.
i smoked from 11 to 48 and let me tell you - there's only one way to your lungs and it needs to be tarred
No wonder we never got sick in college.
I loved Camel regulars. I smoked Camels and chewed Mail Pouch for 28 years. I stopped when I woke up in ICU. Never had throat problems but the heart attack was pretty drastic.
