If you're one of those smokers who is actually looking to like, quit or whatever, you have probably heard of Chantix, or seen evidence of Pfizer's gazillion dollar marketing campaign for its new smoking cessation drug that according to a story in this week's New York also has the fun side effect of making you into a rude hallucinating psychopath. Now, personally, I have never really cared to quit smoking, because I only really smoke when I am trying to take a little break from drinking, but I was skeptical of the drug anyway, on the basis of my experience with Campral, which is supposed to make you want to quit drinking, but actually works maybe less effectively than a placebo (and costs approximately $100 a week to take.) But Chantix turned out to be different! It actually helped my very own sister quit smoking, and my sister smoked like three packs a day (you can smoke in bars where she lives!). So I had Christina write up a review of New York's review of Chantix's side effects — and the bliss of finally quitting the fags. After the jump.
