“I’m Ray, and I quit smoking with Chantix.”
By now I’m sure you’ve seen the commercials.
The anti-smoking drug Chantix has a new pitchman – famous Hollywood actor Ray Liotta.
Yep, the same Ray Liotta from Goodfellas.
But here’s the problem…
The folks that Liotta is working for might not be such “good fellas” after all.
Because Chantix comes with some very dark… and maybe even deadly… secrets.
And Big Pharma and our government are working to make sure you NEVER know about them.
Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire
Let’s face it – most of us aren’t going to run out and do something just because Ray Liotta says so.
I mean, he’s spent much of his career playing psychopaths.
I DEFINITELY wouldn’t follow Liotta’s lead on Chantix… and you shouldn’t either.
Smoking cigarettes is one of the worst things you can do to your body.
But I’d rather put a cigarette in my mouth than Chantix. And I’m NOT kidding.
Those cigarettes could kill you in 30 or 40 years – but some folks who took Chantix didn’t make it that long.
Over the years, Chantix has been linked to HUNDREDS of suicides – and we may never know the real number.
Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, who killed himself earlier this year, was reportedly a Chantix user.
Now, of course, Big Pharma giant Pfizer has fought hard against the notion that Chantix can lead to suicide or suicidal thoughts. They even pushed the Food and Drug Administration to remove a “black box” warning (and, big surprise, the FDA caved).
But here’s what Tina, an insurance executive from Chicago, said about her experience taking Chantix:
“It was just like, boom! Something went wrong.”
Tina tried to throw herself out of a moving car. She spent days locked up in a psychiatric facility.
Years ago, researcher Thomas Moore from the Institute for Safe Medication practices, studied Chantix and concluded it was causing more side effects than any other drug on the market.
The main problems?
Suicidal behaviors, depression, psychosis and aggression.
The federal government even BANNED Chantix for pilots, air traffic controllers, and missile crews.
Now, some Big Pharma defenders will tell you that quitting smoking is stressful – and it is.
But I’ve never heard of ANYONE who suffered from psychosis or committed suicide when quitting cold turkey.
Hypnotherapy, acupuncture, and even the supplement GABA have been found to help smokers quit and beat nicotine addiction.
The folks who back these treatments don’t have the money to pay Hollywood stars to hide their problems and make them look good.
But, then again, they don’t need to.
