How much nicotine is absorbed from 1 puff of a cigar? is it easier to get out of your system or the same as the regular amount of nicotine in a cigar?

See below: One puff of cigar would not introduce too much nicotine into the body. A person could absorb as much through passive exposure to cigarette smoke. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
