Chantix Safe for Quitting Smoking? Alternatives?


Results from a new study of over 40,000 people suggest that the worries about side effects of Chantix may be greatly exaggerated. (Remember the debunking of concerns about MSG, that turned out to be mostly manufactured by the media and rumors?) I'm not thrilled with the idea of an antidepressant for quitting smoking, but many people have used it successfully, despite the millions that drug manufacturer Pfizer has paid out over claims against Chantix.

If you prefer an alternative, and just deciding to quit is not enough, I write about them below. 

Addictions Workshop in Rosarito, for the General Public

Addictions workshop in Rosarito

Hi, It's for people that are concerned about a friend or family member with addictive behavior, or for people that are concerned about their own use of alcohol, drugs, or other possible addictions. I attached the flyer in case you or someone you know is interested. David and Bunny Torrez are the presenters, and I'll be the guest speaker. Dave and Bunny have extensive experience in the recovery community in roles such as sponsor. My addictions work includes clinical coordination of drug treatment programs and direct treatment.
