Anyone try Wellbutrin (Bupropion) to quit smoking?

I've heard of one person who managed to quit smoking by taking Wellbutrin. And I know a couple others who are taking bupropion and they say that it has decreased their urge to smoke, yet they're still smoking. I just wonder who has had an experience with this, and did these drugs help you quit smoking or reduce your urge to smoke? 

The science behind the drug is to increase levels of dopamine in the brain. When going through withdrawal from nicotine, there's a drop and dopamine , which makes people reach for that cigarette to get that hit . since the drug boosts that dopamine, they say there's less of an urge to light up.

I know there's other drugs out there too, like Chantix, but I'm specifically interested in learning about this. 

anyone have anything to add on this?
