Thats a sales phrase, dating to about 50 years ago, repeated ad 
infinitum on the radio of the day, and even into tv days.

LSMFT="Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco".  Lucky Strike was (and may 
still be, I quit cold turkey 15 years ago and frankly don't follow 
that sort of stuff anymore) a brand of cigarettes sold here in the 
US.  I smoked them for a bit 55 some years ago, but then switched to 
Camels for the next 40 or so years.  But I got sick of being sick, so 
I quit.  Simple cause and effect decision, really.
