Yes, although...: Nicotine stays in urine and saliva for up to 4 days. A metabolite, cotitine, is detectable in blood for up to 10 days, so you should pass (there's a very slight chance of a positive in blood if done the 14th). Congratulations on stopping smoking; while you may have done it to pass this test PLEASE don't resume. Smoking is one of the worst things for your health! See http://tinyurl.com/meuts3g
