Pee test 4 nicotine: I took a urine cotinine test this morning for pre employment and I stopped chewing tobacco 11 days ago, will I pass? I'm done with nicotine. ANS: Good judgement on stopping. Depends on which test they use and how much had been stored in your body. So let us know. If + tell them that you want to be retested as it may have been the chewing. Suspect they are most interested in smoking.

May not pass: “When someone stops using tobacco & nicotine products, it can take more than 2 weeks for the blood level of cotinine to drop to the level that a non-tobacco user would have & several weeks more for the urine level to decrease to a very low concentration.” REF: http://labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/nicotine/tab/test/
