How many times have you tried to quit smoking? Have you tried nicotine patches, nicotine gum and other stop smoking programs before? Statistics say that most smokers who finally quit smoking have failed at quitting smoking an average of 10 times. Nicotine is an addiction; some experts say nicotine has a method of action similar to cocaine. Regardless if this is your first attempt to quit smoking, or even you’re twentieth, you should chose the method that has proven to be the most effective at helping you quit smoking, and that method is the prescription medication Chantix®.
There are many stop smoking programs such as nicotine gum and nicotine patches, but unlike most others, Chantix® does not contain the use of any nicotine in its program. Chantix® was introduced in the middle of 2006 and took only four weeks to become the leading product in the smoking cessation prescription market. Initial studies proved that 44% of smokers were able to quit after taking Chantix® for 12 weeks.
Every Chantix® prescription also includes access to the GETQUIT smoking cessation program. This program aids the user in the psychological battle to help you quit smoking. The GETQUIT program combined with the Chantix® prescription medication has proven to be a more effective method to stop smoking that nicotine patches, nicotine gum, and other smoking cessation medications.

How to Take This Medication
- Choose a quit date when you will stop smoking
- Start taking Chantix® 1 week (7 days) before your quit date. This lets Chantix® build up in your body. You can keep smoking during this time. Make sure that you try and stop smoking on your quit date. If you slip, try again. Some people need a few weeks for Chantix® to work best.
- Take Chantix® after eating and with a full glass (8 ounces) of water.
- Most people will keep taking Chantix® for up to 12 weeks. If you have completely quit smoking by 12 weeks, ask your doctor if another 12 weeks of Chantix® may help you stay cigarette-free.
- Join the Free Pfizer Get-Quit™ program for a full year of support to help you quit smoking. (requires you to enter a Pfizer code off your Chantix® prescription package)
Chantix® comes as a white tablet (0.5 mg) and a blue tablet (1mg). You start with the white tablet and then usually go to the blue tablet
