The Chantix Method
Lets first take a look at whats under the hood of this option.
Varenicline (trade name Chantix in the USA and Champix in Europe and other countries,
marketed by Pfizer, usually in the form of varenicline tartrate) is a prescription medication
used to treat smoking addiction. Varenicline is a nicotinic receptor partial agonist.
In this respect, it is similar to cytisine and different from the nicotinic antagonist, bupropion,
and nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs) like nicotine patches (commonly, "the patch") and
As a partial agonist, it both reduces cravings for and decreases the pleasurable effects
of cigarettes and other tobacco products, and through these mechanisms it can assist some patients
to quit smoking.
nb: (Some methods to quit smoking are prescrption only)
Ok so how about we look at that in plain english now.
During the first 10 weeks or more after quiting smoking, craving and withdrawal symptoms can make it easier for cigarettes to outsmart us. But this type of Prescription Medication can help you during this vulnerable time.
People who follow the full 12 week course have been shown to be much more likely to break nicotine addiction than those who stop before 12 weeks is up, such as at 7 weeks for example.
In fact, studies have shown that people who took the medication for 12 weeks were three times more likely to stay smoke-free at the end of 12 months than those who took a sugar pill (placebo).
