addiction to nicotine

Ek verneem daar is '  n drug op die mark wat jou rooklus heeltemal wegvat deur sekere chemiese receptors te blok. Dit is blykbaar nog nie in Suid-Afrika nie. Dit is ook nie Zyban nie. Is dit waar en waar kan mens dit kry. Seker 1000de mense sal dit wil weet, want "  ons"  is vasgevang met die nicotene addiction en dit is NIE net '  n gewoonte nie.

Hallo Lee
I think you are talking about varenicline - see http://www.webmd.com/smoking-cessation/news/20060511/fda-oks-new-quit-smoking-drug
But it is not approved by our Medicines control council so may not be imported in SA. There is a current clinical trial running in SA - get more info at
