HOW DOES IT WORK?
It helps people give up smoking as it can help reduce the craving and withdrawal symptoms that happen while you give up smoking. It works by blocking the effects of nicotine in your body. Champix binds to the same receptor's in the brain that nicotine does which releases dopamine, a feel good chemical but with champix a lesser amount is released over a longer period of time meaning you experience fewer craving's and withdrawal symptoms.
DO NOT USE:

Pay special attention to changes in behaviour, thinking or mood when taking champix.
