Nicotine, a cancer causing compound has been responsible for the biggest addiction known to man-smoking. People who are habituated to smoking say that once they had puffed in life, nine out of ten times; they got hooked on to their vice and found it difficult to leave smoking. Smokers are so addicted that they cannot bring themselves to do their day to day activities, think properly or make a decision unless they have smoke a cigarette or two. Nicotine has been such an age-old destroyer of human lives that man has been trying hard to get over, in vain. The fight has been quite an uphill task but not anymore! Pfizer has obtained US FDA approval in 2006 for its revolutionary anti-smoking drug - Chantix, which gives a new lease of life to smokers.
Most anti smoking drugs are merely placebo and have short-term effect but Chantix actually works in your brain, blocking out nicotine receptors so that the body does not depend on nicotine anymore This simply means that the person does not have any more urge to smoke and with little intervention from the mind, the person is able to make a decision not to smoke. We all know that it is our brain that controls all our actions and if the brain is able to tell the body to stop smoking and leave it for good, the body does agree.
Chantix is not just for the smoker, its benefits can be incredible for the non-smoker and the environment as well, at large. Both the environment and the non-smoker are also prone to the harmful effects of smoking. So, if you are someone who does not smoke but associate regularly with a person who smokes in your presence, you are sure to be affected. Nicotine fumes basically causes damage to the lungs, the heart, the skin, the eyes, the nose and the throat of the person. Now we finally have a solution to the problem in the form of Chantix. The battle between Chantix and Nicotine has reached new heights and the wonder drug from Pfizer is clearly looking to be with the winner, what with many people taking to the drug under prescription as the best remedy and treatment to stop smoking forever. All that is required is conviction, perseverance and dedication to win the battle.
