Federal health officials today approved the first medication designed to ease the pain of quitting cigarettes without using nicotine.
Zyban has actually been around for several years.
Called Wellbutrin, it's used as an anti-depressant.

But in trials, it proved successful as a stop-smoking aid.
The manufacturer found 49-percent of smokers who used Zyban were successful at kicking the habit for a month.
That compares to 36-percent of people using a nicotine patch.
Zyban works much like nicotine-- releasing chemicals in the brain that produce feeling of well-being.
