    Hi all, just wanted to share with you my reason for quitting. My mum died 3 yrs ago from emphysema. She was a true "addict", she tried multiple times to quit with all that was available to her at the time (NRT and Zyban), unfortunately, she didn't succeed. I am quite excited about starting Champix tomorrow, I have heard such great success stories with people quitting using these ta...
