There is some evidence that Champix raises risk of heart problems in people with cardiovascular disease. Anxiety, especially if it is linked to depression, may also factor against your taking Champix. However, this must be weighed up against the undeniable risks associated with continuing to smoke. Please discuss these concerns with your doctor and if it is decided Champix isn't a good idea in your case, don't give up on giving up smoking: remember there are other effective methods too.
