What was acceptable or normalised in the 80s or even 90s but it's completely unacceptable nowadays?

I turned 21 a couple months before Illinois's indoor smoking ban took effect in 2008. During those couple months, it was such a pain in the ass to have to come home after a night at the bar and shower and wash my hair just to avoid waking up with angry lungs and having to launder my pillowcases the next morning. My smoker friends and acquaintances complained about the ban before it happened, but they were fine once it kicked in and it made an almost immediate difference in my enjoyment. I still made a good number of friends by following groups of people out to the sidewalk or smoking patio and just standing upwind of them. I lost at least one good pair of jeans to over-washing during that stanky October-December of 2007.
