I was a smoker for 33 years and quit with Chantix. I never thought anything would work because of years of trying to quit with the Gum, Patches and Wellbutrin. Much to my surprise, it worked!!!! I would highly recommend something for the depression after you stop taking the Chantix. Please consult with a doctor about this.
Actually, May will be 2 years smoke free for me and my husband is going to try to quit starting April 1st!!! We had tried that procedure in your ear; I can't remember the name of it; anyway that didn't work for either of us but I was just determined to quit. Harder than I thought it was going to be. I had smoked for nearly 20 years. My husband has tried everything! Chantix included, this time he is going to use the gum. I think it's more how determined you are than what method you use.
