My boyfriend has been on Chantix for 5 months now and he's still smoking. He has been smoking less. Instead of 1 pack per day he is smoking between 4 and 7 per day. I don't think he has actually tried to quit during this experience but rather hope the drug will work miracle.. I can't tell him what to do but I'm worried about what happens after the end of the 6th month (his last pack of pills). He isn't even meeting with his doctor again until 4 months after that. How can he at minimum keep up just a few smokes a day after the treatment? Will he go right back to smoking a pack a day without the drug? Does he need to ween off of it somehow?
