Who should take Chantix?

People who want to quit smoking and have not had success with nicotine-based products or other quit smoking aids or methods, should try Chantix. Smoking is expensive and causes many health problems. Quitting will improve your health immediately and long term. Quitting smoking is very difficult, and many smokers try to quit six to nine times before they are successful. If you feel you are ready to quit, or your doctor has advised it, Chantix may be an option. Before taking prescription drugs, you may want to try quitting on your own or with the help of a support group.
