    I have never been successful. I cant even go 12 hours with a patch. But I have a friend that used hypnosis. And said she had a few cravings afterward but the thought of smoking was very unappealing. She has not smoked a cigarette in over 5 years now.

    Stop smoking drug Varenicline (Chantix or Champix) is a prescription quit smoking medicine in the form of a pill used to treat smoking addiction.

    As a partial nicotinic receptor 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 in stopping smoking.3

    Varenicline may be viewed as a form of aversion therapy that makes the act of smoking more repulsive.

    Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is a type of treatment that uses special products to give small, steady doses of nicotine to help stop cravings and relieve symptoms that occur when a person is trying to quit smoking. These products include nicotine gum, nicotine inhaler, nicotine nasal spray, nicotine lozenges, and nicotine patch.1

    ZYBAN (bupropion hydrochloride sustained-release tablets or bupropion hcl sr) is a prescription medicine to help people quit smoking. Studies have shown that more than one third of people quit smoking for at least 1 month while taking ZYBAN and participating in a patient support program.

    For many patients, ZYBAN reduces withdrawal symptoms and the urge to smoke. ZYBAN should be used with a patient support program. It is important to participate in the behavioral program, counseling, or other support program your healthcare professional recommends.2

    Some smokers have quit successfully by cutting down gradually, e.g cutting down to five cigarettes a day or less or delaying the first cigarette by an hour each day. Eventually however a point must be reached where smoking is stopped altogether (as in the cold turkey method above).

    If this approach is to work for you it is suggested that your final quit date is no more than two weeks after you start cutting down. Nicotine replacement therapy (discussed next) may also be an option to consider as part of any such plan.

    Help in and support in the form of counselling or stop smoking programs should not be underestimated. In fact NRT manufacturers and National Health Service professionals recommend support as an integral part of any attempt to quit smoking.

    Speak to your doctor who will also be able to put you in touch with suitable agencies
