Each year, millions of people make a promise to them about leaving this addiction but mostly they try and fail due to conventional smoking cessation approaches. These methods include use of nicotine gum, patches, counseling or behaviour modification. Some people even try out methods such as accupuncture needles stuck in their bodies or nicotine averse images being implanted in their minds with unconventional thoughts of conquering their nicotine carvings.

Medications such as Chantix and Zyban also prove to be helpful for smoking cessation. Zyban works better because it holds bupropion that acts as an antidepressant. It boosts up the level of chemical messengers in the brain and therefore there is a nicotine withdrawl symptoms experienced among smokers and a weakened urge to smoke.

Studies show that Zyban used along with a nicotine replacement greatly helps one to quit smoking.

Pregnant women or breast-feeding mothers should also avoid taking Zyban.

Zyban treatment usually starts when the person smokes and withdrawal symptoms are seen within two weeks. This tablet can be swallowed or crushed and chewed but the later could reduce the activity of the medicine or increase its side effects. Taking smoking cessation medicines and their support programs shall make you free of this drug nicotine abuse.

Even though Zyban is an effective FDA approved medicine, it should be taken only after consulting a medical practitioner to avoid any sort of severe side effects.
