Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

All three have different indications. Still Varenicline is best to control smoking. They are known to reduce craving. Bupropion is preferred, if associated depressive symptoms present.

Nicotine gum or patch preferred, if person is not able to control desire by above these. It is a replacement therapy.
