Yes, yes, we know that they are actually useless (the tobacco control industry says so) but perhaps this person is yet another industry stooge, I dunno.
Anyhow, this bit struck me as quite amusing.
"I had myself prepared for the day despite the let down of not getting my Stoptober pack in time (GRRRRR)"Really? Now, I'd have thought that for a campaign which revolves around starting the quit attempt on the 1st of October, it is pretty damn vital that the 'support' arrives before that date. No?
But then, further on ...
"I popped by my brothers after work to swap some Nicorette gum for an e-cigarette to try. He showed me his Stoptober pack that did arrive and he was quite disappointed with, seemed to just contain loads of leaflets, a chart that doesn't related to smoking roll ups and a stress bass that wasn't even really squidgy."So not that much of an aid, after all. That was £2 million well spent, then.
