  • My husband was on Chantix and it didn't work for him BUT that was because I don't think he really wanted to quit.While he was on it he did slow down alot and he did feel sick if he smoked. I work in a hospital and a year ago our network went smoke free. You are not aloud to smoke anywhere on any of the hospital grounds. I work with alot of people and they used Chantix and it worked for them. I think the key is you have to want to quit. I quit years ago cold turkey and that worked for me but I wish you the best of luck and do not get dicouraged it may take a little longer or it may not but good luck
