How to Save a Life

When you think of cigarettes today, the last thing you probably think of is saving a life. In fact, you might not think of many beneficial side effects, save for helping calm someone down or ease the cravings of an addict.

A hundred years ago, we didn’t really understand just how harmful tobacco was for our bodies and environment. Not only were they in fashion, but they were perfectly acceptable to the point of being omnipresent. In spite of what that might have done for people’s health back in the day, one large brand of cigarettes came with a handy life hack printed on a card in every pack. It might sound ironic to begin with, but even more surprisingly, these hacks are still pretty useful today!

Though a few of them seemed to be geared towards boy scouts, others are useful all around the house. See for yourself what tips Gallaher Group cigarettes had for its users!
