In brief: As long as it takes;
...To light up a cigarette.
For some, there is a genetic predisposal not only to become addicted, but to suffer from the most serious long term affects of tobacco smoke exposure. Don't take that chance, and don't give the tobacco industry another customer. They have made a science of creating addicts, and we have obliged them. Help yourself, and your family by not being one of them.
