If you were given this medication originally for anxiety, with the possible (and hopeful) side effect that it would help you to stop smoking, then I would say it's OK to continue taking it for your anxiety. But, not being a doctor, I cannot tell you to either stop, start or stay on ANY medication. You should let your prescribing doc know that it didn't work to help you stop smoking. If you are still dealing with an anxiety issue, they may want to put you on something else. I don't know if you can just abruptly stop the Wellbutrin, so if you are still taking it, stay on it until you speak with your doctor.
I wish you the best in your efforts to quit. As a smoker myself, I know how horribly difficult it is to stop.
