The old toastie machine had been around since about 1990, or thereabouts.. One of the very first things Mum claimed from the Embassy Cigarette "Focus Points", whereby you had to keep the front of the cigarette packets, save them up, and send them off to get something fairly decent.. Meaning she probably had to smoke her way through 1,000 packs or more, to claim the damn Toastie machine!!
I was the only one who ever used it, and I haven't had a toastie since Pre-OP, so it's been sat abandoned for at least 5 years..

Really wasn't in a good state!!

New Toastie machine should be arriving today, but I doubt it'll be here by lunch time. Amazon orders don't usually turn up until about 6pm.

Must admit, I do like a Breville toasted sandwich now and again.

Lunch has been, and lunch has gone.
"Tomato Soup!" he boasted.
But in his heart, he wished his lunch,
Was something warm and toasted..

Embassy Cigarette "Focus Points"


I remember them... 300000000 focus points for a thermos flask, or, basically, you can have a nice cuppa while having chemo!

I do smoke myself, not loads, but I should stop, only, nicorette chewy or lozenges give me chronic heartburn, patches give me palpitations, I have no interest in that vape thing as you still are addicted to nicotine, and can easily come off the wagon (As well as I have had a blast and nearly threw my bot hole up), I've tried them cartridge things you put the little capsule in and I couldnt get it out of my gob, and finally, apparently there is tablets but they make you suicidal!

So, basically, unless I get a health shock, or somehow wake up on a morning and decide thats it... My will power alone will sadly not cut the mustard and I'll probably just carry on!

I smoked at school, coz that's what was donw back then, I then grew bored of it. I then started up again at age 18 and then gave up at 26, I was coughing up blood for a few years on and off then it got worse. I've not had a smoke since then. Smoking was probably the dumbest thing I ever got into.

I still like a beer now and then though!

@Mike:
The tablets are called Zyban. I don't know about th suicidal bit but I've been told they're supposed to make every smoke taste like rubber.

I'm a smoking cessation advisor at work, believe it or not.

There are two main tablets (that are not NRT) - Zyban and Champix that are the most effective methods of SMOKING CESSATION They are both much more effective than NRT lozenges, microtabs, sprays, patches, gums or inhalators etc. But yes, there is a VERY, VERY small possibility that they can cause suicidal ideation. But if you are serious, pretty much ignore the NRT and go for those. NRT is effective, but only if used properly, and with a clear goal.

Most people don't plan their smoking cessation and just quit without the proper support. This is NOT the way to do it. You need to start using NRT a week before quitting smoking, so that you get used to the tastes and feelings of using the NRT first.

The thing with stopping smoking is that you've got to want to and have good reasons to do so and avoid (where possible) the triggers/places/people/events that can cause you to start up again. You've also got have follow the "Not one puff" rule; smokers often think they can have one more puff/drag/cig and be OK. They won't. That is pretty much a guarantee that they will resume smoking again.

Reducing smoking doesn't work either as you'll still get all the nicotine you crave from fewer cigarettes as you draw more in and more deeply.

But anyway...

If anyone here needs further support or advice, just let me know - I've got shitloads of material at work.

Mum stopped for about a year or two. Cold turkey. Stop!!!
.. then I wound up with a brain tumour, and all the worry and stress made her start again.. :/

I've never touched one.

I also went cold turkey when I stopped, I used reverse psychology on myself. Whenever anyone tried badgering me into taking a snout from them I never used the words "no thanks!, I'm givin' up", I used "Na! mate, I don't smoke!" instead.

Problem is though I put on 5 stone in weight over the space of two years, I went from 11 to 16 stone. My doctor told me I should have go to him before giving up; well I didn't bloody know, I thought to give up you just simply stop smoking.

Seventeen years on I've gone from smoker to ex smoker, and now I'm a fat bastard with type-2 diabetes and a heart problem. Although the anxiety/depression thing combined with not looking after myself properly more than likely played a part in that.

Thing is though Steve, you'd probably have the same conditions now PLUS smoking related illnesses too, if you hadn't stopped smoking. And you'd be less well off financially.

So while you may look at it negatively, it could actually be so much worse.

Yeah I do agree that giving up has done me good in more than one way, but it would also be handy if I didn't have this other stuff wrong healthwise.
