Long story short: One of my main characters is a smoker, he's addicted to smoking. What was smoking like back then? I assume they didn't use the cigars/cigarettes that we have today. Were the risks inherited from smoking just as they are today, or were they something else? How would he light up his pipe? During the course of the story, one of his arcs is trying to drop the smoking when he hears how it affected someone he cared about and doesn't wish to meet the same fate. How should I show it in a way that it's realistic? Thanks.
