Djarum Clove Cigarettes Nicotine Level
If I have a nicotine test in 5 days, and I smoked a couple of cigarettes today will I be able to pass?
Maybe, or not: There are several variables which effect the amount of cotinine, the byproduct of nicotine, which is measured. Second hand smoke may cause an elevation of the cotinine level. A big time heavy smoker, may have an evaluated level of weeks. Since even second hand smoke can elevate the cotinine, the issue of passing a test depends on the cutoff level from the tester. ...Read more

Will I pass a mouth swab nicotine test today if I took two puffs of a cigarette over three to four weeks ago?
Lets review your que:
I swab test is more accurate than a urine, and usually can dectect smoking up to two weeks. Uine checks a breakdown product and with those with fast metabolism they can be nictotine negative in just 2 days.
If your company really wants to confirm your test they can ask for a hair sample which is the most accurate, but more expensive test and can detect use up to a month after smoking. ...Read more
I have been smoking my e - cig for about 6 months now. Lowered the nicotine level to 12 mg. I started getting terrible headaches from it? Why?
Vessels: Nicotine stimulates blood vessels in the head (and heart.) when you tamper with the size of the vessels you can get headaches. If these are bad and if they persist see a doctor. But you are addressing the most dangerous problem, smoking at all. Don't let the pain stop you from stopping smoking and lowering your risk of all kinds of cancer and heart and brain disease. ...Read more
Heavy smoker nicotine level very high stop smoking yesterday another test on 9/19 will I be clear and only eating fruits and vegetables also water?
Smoking: Congratulations on becoming smoke free! Keep at it. Your diet needs to contain protein, good fats, and carbs. Fruits and vegetables are not enough. Please ask your doc or see a nutritionist. Eggs are good for protein, olive oil and coconut oil good for fats, and carbs are in the vegetables. Peace and good health. ...Read more
No: I am not aware of that.Get a more detailed answer ›
Two weeks is sufficient time for nicotine and its metabolite cotinine to clear out of your system, as long as you avoid exposure to all nicotine, including gum or patches and passive smoke.

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.

I've stopped smoking today and I have a nicotine test next Tuesday I smoke frequently before will I pass the test?
Not likely: Oral swabs stay positive for the longest of the body fluids, and generally become negative before one week. Blood and urine are generally negative after 3-4 days. Congrats on stopping smoking, and I hope it isn't JUST for the test but for your health. It's one of the best decisions any smoker can make!! Good luck. ...Read more
I have a nicotine test at a hospital. What type of testing will they do and long before it will be out of my system?
I quit somoking for 20 days then smoked a pack a day for 3 days my question is would I be able to pass urine nicotine test in 7 days after?
Don't use nicotine: If you are smoking or chewing tobacco and your employer (or whoever) is testing for it, it is going to test positive unless you quit. Cotinine, the main metabolite that is usually tested for, will remain positive 3-4 days in most tests, up to a week for more sensitive tests. You can find websites on "beating" tests, but most of these don't work, and testing companies now test for them/ ...Read more
Not smoke!!: If you are asking how to "beat" the test, it would be unethical for any physician to give you advice on that. The way to pass ANY drug test is to NOT use that drug. Moreover, it is far more important to actually stop using tobacco products because they remain the number one preventible cause of death in the western world (and increasingly in developing nations). Stop BEFORE cancer, heart disease. ...Read more
I had a few puffs of an e-cig (17-24mgs of nicotine) on Friday and have to take a nicotine test tomorrow. Will I be able to pass?
Hard to say: Depends on what test they are using, and you don't say which Friday you are talking about, what tomorrow is. If you are talking about having had a few puffs on 11/25/16 (a Friday) and then having a test tomorrow (11/26), it will very likely pick up the cotinine metabolite. Most cotinine tests are accurate for 3-4 days after consumption, but depends on how deep the puff, how long you held it etc. ...Read more
I have been using E-CIG 3mg for awhile and just found out that need to go thru a nicotine test so how many days before I am free of nicotine to pass?
I smoke e cig to aide in quitting- I have a nicotine test coming up coming up in 10 days. Will nicotine be gone. On e-cig 5 days. Modernate smoke?
I would so "no": Usually, 10 days is considered to be the outside time limit to detect nicotine after it has been ingested. However, the tests are very sensitive & depending on age & dose, cotinine (a nicotine metabolite) has been detected as long as 3 months after. Current use of e-cigarettes and/or vaping will very possibly result in positive nicotine tests, though, apparently, not ALL e-cigs contain nicotine. ...Read more
No: If they are using a specific test only for nicotine metabolite (cotinine), that is all it will detect. If they are using a multi-drug screening strip, then it may. If you are in a position where some kind of drug testing is likely in the future, continuing use of marijuana will be a set-up for you, and you should re-consider its use. ...Read more
I have to take a nicotine swab test for work. I do smoke weed on a regular basis. Will this cause me to fail my nicotine test?
Weed will not give positive nicotine test result. Be sure that your employer will not be testing the sample for THC also.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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.

I have a nicotine test tomorrow morning for a job. I have not smoked in 4 days. Should I be worried that I won't pass the test?
Should pass: If you have a low level, claim passive smoking. That said, please forgive my frankness. You need to comply with your tobacco abstinence program. It is hard, but it is life and death. Do whatever gives you strengt to pursue it and hang in there. ...Read more

I have to pass a nicotine test on Monday, and I slipped today and had a cig. What do I need to do so I can pass, I only had the one.
Don't smoke again: There is nothing you can do other than not smoke any more. You may still pass depending on the type of test. You will pass a blood test after 1-10 days depending on the type, a urine test after 3-4 days and a saliva test after 1/2-4 days. If you have abstained for a week prior today you will probably pass if you just had 1 today. Stopping for good is the best thing you can do for your health. ...Read more
