I have taken Wellbutrin to quit smoking and it worked for me. It took about 2 weeks for it to take effect, but I am sure that it differs for each person. I have a few friends who took Chantix to quit smoking and it worked for them.
I took Wellbutrin for about a month and it was helping me, but then I became very depressed and I had to stop taking it. My Doctor said most of these drugs are similiar, so she doesn't want me taking any of them.
Watch out for any signs of depression. Good Luck!!!
