Relieve smoking addition with the use of sulfur

I just read about a sulfur pill (no names - just refered to as a sulfur pill) which supposedly decreases one's urge to smoke. It is said that those who smoke a pack or more a day will only smoke maybe 5 cigarettes a day. That's a drastic reduction. Sounds too good to be true. Is there any conection between sulfur and a reduction or urge to smoke? Can one get enough sulfur from food to replace a sulfur pill?

The name of the product is Sulfonil. It is supposed to occupy the nicotine receptors in the brain more strongly than nicotine. Nothing will stop a person from smoking who is not determined to stop regardless of anything else. In that sense Sulfonil (like the nicotine patch) is one more rationalization for continuing to smoke. A couple items I have noticed almost sure to stop a person from smoking is a close personal experience with lung cancer or a visit to the terminal emphysema ward at the hospital, but sometimes even those do not work. My accountant just got out of the hospital after surgery and chemo for cancer and is still immitating a smokestack.
