In brief: Chantix won't show.

Chantix is an entirely different chemical that is prescribed to aid in smoking or tobacco use cessation.
The chemicals nicotine and the metabolite of nicotine known as continine should only be found in the event of active tobacco use. Continine can remain in the system even after nicotine has cleared out, how long it persists in the body depends upon how much tobacco is used and for how long.
