    [added for clarity]
    The study included 618,497 participants with no diagnosis or treatment for depression in the prior 12 months. Compared with NRT, varenicline [Chantix] and bupropion [Wellbutrin and Zyban] were associated with a 20% and 25% lower 1-year risk of cardiovascular hospitalization, respectively. Also compared with NRT, varenicline and bupropion were associated with a 35% lower and 21% higher 1-year risk of neuropsychiatric hospitalization, respectively.

    If I’m reading that right, it’s showing Chantix as a positive. But maybe I’m not.

    Shut my kidneys down. Only took about a week...... good times.

    Few months later we saw Chase at Twenty Nine Palms and he cursed me for takin it explaining that he saw tons of people every day that came into the ER on Chantix. Of course there was every side effect you could think of.

    I had a long talk with my wife before trying it and we agreed that if the side effects ever got to the point she was uncomfortable she would get me off of it.

    I took the whole article as meaning Chantix has 'improved' over the years, whatever that means.

    Which is one of the things I never understood. The doctors won't, and under any known circumstances, never will, prescribe Welbutrin to me. Which is an anti-depressant, that can often, and effectively, help folks quit smoking, because I had a TBI. But after a twenty minute, most likely less, conversation with my primary care doctor they were willing to prescribe to me a drug that had a legitimate possibility of making think I really was ten foot tall, bullet proof, and could fly.

    Just makes me wonder...

    Now granted, this drug had only been on the market for two, maybe, threes years when I took it. So I'm sure all now known and then unknown side effects were not available.

    10 years ago my doctor suggested Chantix to me. I asked him what the side affects were. He looked at me sideways for a second as if to say "Nothing worse than chemo therapy or radiation treatments." I know he wanted to say that, heh. But then he started with the long list of side affects.

    I said "No thanks doc, I'll take my chances with vaping". He was good with that.

    Okay guys and gals, I need some opinions and ideas. I'm looking for a fairly inexpensive, fairly small-ish dual 18650 box mod. I've got a two year old(+-) Sigelei Shikra that is slowly dying on me, and a SMOK Species that eats up batteries. And I Hate the fire button on the SMOK.

    I'd like to keep it below the $50.00 range. Something that will last, do well in wattage only, the other options are just wasted on me, and will work well with an Eleaf IJust S tank.
