Today everybody knows that cigarettes are dangerous and that nicotine causes addiction. There are stern warnings on the packaging everywhere.
There has been much publicity about huge claims against the tobacco industry, threatening it with bankruptcy.
Still people go on smoking because of this addiction to nicotine. They fill their lungs, time and time again, with over 4000 deadly chemicals. This combination makes cigarettes a fatal habit. However stop smoking is still very difficult for many people. There are some medicine that can help you quit smoking:
Zyban is the first nicotine-free medication that helps you stop smoking.
Other anti-smoke pills, patches and chewing-gum all contain nicotine and this gets you cleaping out of the frying pan and into the fire. Small wonder that these don t help you.
Varenicline is a type of medicine called a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor partial agonist. This means that it acts on the same receptors in the brain as nicotine does.
