What is Chantix?

Chantix: The New Quit Smoking Treatment

May 2006 saw the release of Chantix™ (varenicline), by Pfizer, as the latest treatment in the crusade to help people quit smoking for good. Until now Zyban has been one of the most commonly used prescription treatments to help smokers quit. Chantix is now available as a second medicinal option for smokers who dearly want to quit but simply can't fight the cravings.

Smokers know that their habit is unhealthy, costly and not in the least bit attractive. The problem is that nicotine reacts with the brain to send signals of pleasure to the body when a smoker inhales. This feel-good-factor leads to smokers sometimes physically and emotionally not being able to quit. This is what most smokers struggle with and causes most smokers trying to quit to lapse at least once.

How Chantix Works

Chantix focuses on the parts of the brain that are most stimulated by smoking and prevents/reduces the extreme cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Even if you smoke a cigarette whilst taking Chantix it can reduce the amount of pleasure or "relaxation" that you get from that cigarette which in turn will reduce your desire to smoke in the first place.

So if nothing else has worked for you why not have a chat with your family Doctor today about Chantix? It could change your life.
