Chantix is not a miracle pill, it does help to reduce the want for a cig. I have taken chantix twice now the first time i quit within a week and didn't smoke for a month after coming off due to medical problems( not from chantix). You husband has to want to quit if he doesn't have the will power it wont happen. Chantix helps but does not stop you from smoking, have you tried the support group?
