Stop smoking at 11:59pm on 03-04-16, I have a blood,urine and mouth test for nicotine. The test is between 3-14/18-2016 will i pass?

Stop smoking at 11:59pm on 03-04-16, I have a blood,urine and mouth test for nicotine. The test is between 3-14/18-2016 will i pass?

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!

Will use of a vape with 3 mg juice cause a failed cotinine/nicotine saliva test in 5 days? (Test is in 5 days)

Stop smoking: I'm not sure the answer, as the delivery of nicotine is exceedingly variable in vape devices. However, better advice is to stop smoking.

The chemicals in e-cigarettes are actually more harmful to your airways than regular cigarettes. We can see reduction in lung function within 5 minutes of vaping, even in active cigarette smokers whose lung function is already decreased!!!

Will increasing saliva in the mouth increase nicotine absorption by decreasing the pH of the mouth?

Will increasing saliva in the mouth increase nicotine absorption by decreasing the pH of the mouth?

No: The majority of nicotine from smoked tobacco is absorbed through the lungs, so mouth ph is irrelevant to nicotine absorption from smoking. Nicotine from smokeless tobacco is significantly absorbed through oral mucous membrane, but increased ph (rather than decrease) facilitates absorption. Studies show that the buffering action of saliva plays only a small role in determining nicotine absorption. ...Read more
