I started chewing tobacco to help quit smoking. Will Chantix help me quit chewing tobacco as well?

I have been trying to quit smoking on and off for 2 years now, and to help subside my craving for nicotine I started chewing tobacco about 1 year ago. It helps me smoke less, but now I can't stop chewing! Currently I am using both cigarettes and chewing tobacco, and I was curious as to whether or not Chantix will do me any good. It doesn't really matter if I quit smoking if I can't quit chewing. Anyone have some insight?

The gum most assuredly is better.
Chewing tobacco is worse on oral cancer than smoking. Your teeth will yellow and start to decay. Your mouth will start to smell. So dump the chewing tobacco.
Go to the gum. It is not easy. But for your health, you need to do this.

Go to KillTheCan.org ASAP! KTC is a site specific to quitting chewing tobacco and the guys on that site can help you big time. Chantix has a lot of scary side effects. I've been quit for over 200 days now without using Chantix - just the support of the guys on KTC.
