    I used Chantix to quit smoking. It took me three tries but ultimately I was successful and now I have been cigarette free for 6 months. My final statement is that you really need to want to quit for this method to work. It is very easy to take this pill and to continue to smoke so the desire needs to be there.

There are better ways to stop smoking then using poison like this drug and it i ... Show Full Comment

    I have smoked for 40 yr's. My husband and I both are taking this medication. We are no longer smoking. I have not become sick or tired. We have been on the medication for 2 weeks. It has really worked for us, we are so glad, we could never quit without help.

If I can get through the tired ... Show Full Comment
