Smoking through the years

Today it's World No Tobacco Day, created by member states of the World Health Organization (WHO) intended to encourage a 24-hour abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption. If you are a smoker, please participate. If you are not, please do not start. It ain't worth it. You still won't sing like Dylan and for sure not like Caruso at all. Instead take a look at these iconic photographies of Bob Dylan lighting up cigarettes through the years – and remember how times have changed:
