I started using this medication for depression and wound up in the hospital for other health reasons. I was a heavy 2+ pack a day smoker. While in the hospital, the doctors made sure i kept up my dosage of the medication and I had NO cravings for cigarettes and have rarely had any since and it has been 1 yr and 9 months.
