Several studies have looked at the use of NRT products, Chantix and Zyban for quitting smokeless. Participants generally experienced less severe withdrawal symptoms and were more likely to maintain short-term abstinence, but results vary on the effectiveness for long-term maintenance. Behavioral interventions are helpful and quit-med use should be part of a comprehensive program. If you want to try quit-meds, talk to your doctor to find out which quit-med or quit-med combination might be a good fit for you.
