Hello! Nicotine takes 72hrs to clear the system, so you should be safe at 2wks. Congratulations on quitting and it's very good you did since nicotine will slow the healing process. If you have any other questions, there is a site called "whyquit.com" that a lot of us here visit and it can answer almost any question you might have.
Nicotine is out of your system at 72 hrs after last smoking, with the exception of the hair. It is permanantly in your hair. At 72 hrs after smoking, your lungs are already repairing themselves. Cool huh!
I just found out today that they do test for nicotine my mom has to have a liver transplant and they told her she had to quit smoking and they could test her blood for it so she couldnt cheat that is crazy i would have never thought they could do that.
i have a surgery coming up jan 12/12 and i have blood work on dec 21/11 and there gonna find out i have been smoking the doc wont do the surgery it is the gastric by-pass so i need some hint to get it out of my system before my blood work some one told me 4 weeks ty bubbles
i also have to quit smoking due to gastric bypass surgery its been hard but i have to do it. ive done some research on how long and it depends on how long youve been a smoker they say could take up 2 couple wks so im giving myself at least 30 days to be safe
I'm about to have Gastric bypass as well soon. Although they say it takes a few days to a few weeks to get out your system I have also started doing a detox and trying to drink lots of water and eat oranges for vitamin C. The detox is suppose to clean the blood from toxins. It's Liquid Chlorophyll by Nature's Sunshine. I will find out the results after the test is done. I also just stopped smoking cold turkey. Pray for me! Good luck with stop smoking. I know it's hard and I'm here with you! One day at a time. I want one so bad but getting this weight off is more important to me right now.
you are doing the right thing, you can pass the test easily. Go on your way, drink more water and you can do not care about the test. Have a good surgery.
To check and review information about how long tobacco need to go out your body in:
Nicotine is literally poisonous. Both the CIA and KGB used it for cold war assassinations. In high does it can kill you. If you can stop smoking that would be great for you. I know people who have used the Ecig just make sure you find one that auto reduces nicotine. Some people have killed themselves by using too much nicotine in the Ecig. If you have the willpower just quit. Chew gum, keep your fingers busy and keep a pack of unopened cigarettes in the freezer or something. Knowing they are there seems to make it easier for some people to quit.
