Stop Smoking Advice
I'm sorry to hear about your battles finding the right medication to treat your major depression. Unfortunately this is the experience of many people with the disease. Good for you that you're clearly determined to keep trying medication options, and to give up smoking too. It is the responsibility of the prescribing doctor (your GP?, which is fine) to make the call on whether it's safe for you to take Champix given your psychiatric history. It's your responsibility to be absolutely honest about your medical history with your doctor, including any recreational drug use.
