How long will it take nicotene from cigarettes to get out of your system?

How long will it take nicotene from cigarettes to get out of your system?

Variable: Depends what you mean by "out of system". Nicotine can clear within 2 days but its metabolic product from the liver-- "cotinine" --is cleared more slowly.

This is the first time I took Plan B. Is it safe to smoke cigarettes still? I'm 19, not on regular birth control and I don't regularly take medication

No. Don't do it.: It is not safe to smoke cigarettes, or to smoke anything else other than brisket, ribs, or chicken. Smoking cigarettes means inhaling the toxic stuff of burnt organic material and its added chemicals, whatever they might be. It is even more dangerous if a woman smokes and takes estrogen (Plan B in the U.S. does not contain estrogen, but has levonorgestrel which is a progestin). ...Read more

I quit smoking weed started smoking cigarettes tried to smoke weed again now every time I try to smoke weed I get anxiety when will it disappear?

In a few hours: Your anxiety from smoking marijuana should disappear within a few hours as the effects of the marijuana dissipate, but will likely come back every time you smoke it. While most find cannabis to be calming, many react with anxiety. Possibly the combination of tobacco & cannabis is causing this; in either event stop smoking cigarettes-it's the best thing you can do for your health. See my comment:. ...Read more

How long will it take for marijuana get out of your system if you only smoke it on time my husband has liver cancer and is waiting for a transplant, he has a lot of pain

A few days: One time use does not cause it to stick around for very long, usually a day or less. However, with serious liver disease, some of it may stick around a bit longer, but certainly not more than a few days. I don't think most transplant centers would be doing drug tests, though. ...Read more
