I got married in 1968 and things changed slightly. The whole decade up to 1968 I thoroughly enjoyed. It was free living, it was happy, you did everything you wanted to do. Your parents used to say 'we don't like this' the same as it is today when they don't like what the kids are doing.
There was drugs on the scene as well so they'd say 'don't you be taking drugs - don't you be drinking too much'. I can't remember the name of it but there was a blue tablet going around it was the in-drug (as well as marijuana) it was very similar to Ecstasy these days.
People would dance for 12 hours and not think anything of it. Purple hearts - that was what they were called. I never touched them, my vice was cigarettes- still is. Back in the 60s they advertsised cigarettes. Everyone smoked. Pall Mall was a big brand at the time. Senior Service was another one.
