Assunto:  fair chance, then.
 
Mensagem:  You do not hear it today except for in the western movies, but fixings refers to having the tobacco and paper to roll cigarettes.

To get a fix:  (1) to inject a dose of illegal drugs, particularly heroin, and (2) to find one`s location through the position of the stars or sun.  In jest, people talk about getting a sugar fix (eating something sweet).

To be in a fix is to have a big problem.
