 Smoking leads to diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease, asthma, emphysema, and lung cancer. It is a terrible addiction that leads to a destructive outcome. Tobacco smoke contains nicotine and a addictive stimulant. Nicotine increases blood sugar, therefore suppressing the appetite.  Pfizer Inc. was approved by FDA after creating Varenicline known as a perscription tablet called Chantix. Chantix is supposed to stop smokers addiction after a years use. It is nicotine free and is said to stop the pleasure in smoking. Chantix had two studies showing more smokers quit at the end of a 12 week study than a drug called Zyban. Will Chantix help people quit smoking? Lets hope it does.
