I believe she means a "cigarette butt."

Tom, it has been discussed already. Look at one of Olga's threads.

And I should support Elly -- language of many posters is not their native (mine neither). So, before giving any upshot, keep this on minds!  But again, we are not 'fortune tellers' to know in advance abuot another poster's language.

I'm not making fun of your English as I am around a lot of people who are not native speakers anyways.  My point is I'm seriously freaking out about the cigarettes!  Everything I know is a lie! :O

I was like that too when I found out. I thought ' how could they do something so bad?' but then someone pointed out the me that they were only human and that at that period in history, people did not know the effects of smoking and it was seen as new, exotic and fashionable. In a way you could say OTMA were just following a trend amoung young women at that time.

although I haven't heard of Maria smoking?

Yes, girls smoked. But in that way, to relax their nerves during war.

Come on, don't be depressed.

I know you are not making fun of anybody's language, I only say that here many of the posters are not native English speakers.

My apologies if I offended you.

As welll as for Maria, I am not sure, either.

The only people that have offended me are the grand duchesses.  But I suppose I would have done the same thing if I lived in that time.  Still, they were so young! 

Wait, Maria didn't smoke?  I'm saved! *happy moment*

Ah! Thanks for clearing that up Elly, once again your vast knowledge has helped us all...

And Anastasia Spalko, I'm sure the grand duchesses didn't mean to offend you  ;)

Smoking was not only common in that time, it was prescribed by doctors to calm the nerves and, specifically in woman to lose weight.

That could be part of the reason the girls (with the exception of Anastasia) looked skinnier in their later days. o_o <hmm...)

Aww, man...
