Smoking is an addiction and for those people who want to give up this addiction but find it impossible, do not despair as help is on the way in the form of a new drug.
It is well known that many people have been able to kick the habit with the help of their GP with the various treatments available while others have failed miserably.
A new pill has now been developed. Trials of the drug Champix in Britain show that it is effective after a 12-week course, with 44 percent of smokers stopping, If necessary smokers can take it for longer the overall rate of smokers quitting then rises.
Champix is nicotine-free and works in an entirely different way to other treatments. It binds the nicotine receptors in the brain and reduces the severity of cravings and other withdrawal symptoms by interfering with the release of the “pleasure” chemical dopamine. Champix also reduces the satisfaction gained from smoking.
