That depends on the

amount & duration you smoked, how deeply you inhaled, whether the cigarettes were mentholated, your genetic set-up for the enzymes in your liver that metabolize nicotine, & whether you're a passive smoker at home or work. You may still have low-moderate amounts of cotinine in your urine.

how long will meth stay in your urine?

Up to 10 days.

For most individuals having used the substance, the general consensus is often noted as a maximum of 10 days that methamphetamine remains detectable via a urine drug test. Often it is more like 3-5 days. The urine test rarely gives an incorrect finding if meth is in there. It can be detected in hair for much much longer. Meth is highly addictive, dangerous & harmful to mental and physical health.

how long does ativan stay in your urine?

It depends

Medications are taken up into the body, reach a level, and are broken down and then excreted by the liver and the kidney. Drug studies define the usual uptake and elimination rates for normal adult animals under normal conditions (half life). Patients on high doses with poorly functioning kidneys can keep medication around for a long time. For others, rapid elimination occurs. For you?
