Brief Answer:
Zyban under medical supervision or Nicorette

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Zyban is an effective medication when taken as scheduled by the doctor. It should be taken in a well planned and stopped in a tapering manner to prevent relapses. You can get back again on Zyban if you wish to but this time do it under medical supervision.

You can either opt for Nicorette products as the results are very good with the same.

For sure, will power is an essential element in quitting.

Wish you good health.
