FDA Approves New Medication for Quitting Smoking

Cigarette smoking is a true addiction and bad habit for many people. Cigarette smoking is the single greatest cause of lung cancer and is linked to a long list of other cancers, along with heart disease and lung disease. Many people find it difficult to quit smoking. Chantix is a new medication that appears helpful for people that want to kick the habit. 

Chantix is the first new medication that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 10 years. Chantix is a pill that helps ease withdrawal from nicotine and at the same time, blocks the affects of nicotine. Chantix may have some temporary side effects, but researchers have shown that Chantix is a safe and effective smoking cessation method for people that are committed to quitting.  Ask your doctor about Chantix, because quitting cigarette smoking has just gotten easier!
