It might not, unfortunately its a shot in the dark if Bupropion will or will not help stop people from smoking. However not to make you feel bad it will take longer than 10 days, at least usually to see the full results. I only know this from my history with Wellbutrin XL. (non-generic Bupropion) It can take a month or more to saturate your system (brain) to do any good. It might also take a higher dosage, if you don't mind me asking what dosage are you at now? There are not to many options either for help with nicotine addiction, Bupropion has proven to be the most useful in testing so I have read. Don't give up, and don't forget it is suppose to "help" with it, you still have to do your part. =)
