How Long Does Nicotine Stay in Your System? And Other Common Smoking Questions


Visitors: 8,037

Here are a few of the most common questions asked when people are looking into quiting smoking:

How long does nicotine stay in your system?

Trace amounts of nicotine can stay in your system for as long as 20 days. It really depends on how heavy of a user you are. Of course the effects of smoking would be present for a lot longer (stained teeth, yellow fingers, etc0 so keep that in mind as well.

Will I gain weight when I try to quit smoking?

This really depends on the type of person you are. Some people seem to replace smoking with eating, and of course they then gain weight. This is not the same case for everyone. As long as you are aware that sometimes people move from one thing to the next, such as smoking to eating, you can be looking for this to happen, and control it when it does.

Who will help me quit?

Everyone! Take advantage of everyone around you. Chances are that many people in your life would love to see you quit, and would be very supportive of helping you. Do not be afraid to ask, and call in those favors.

Do I need to change my habits? If all of your friends are heavy smokers, you are going to have a harder time quiting. If you love smoking ritualistically at certain parts of the day, those are going to be harder to break. I would suggest doing what you can to break up your routine, as situations like this will just tempt and temp you to smoke and can be hard to overcome.

Are you tired of trying to quit smoking only to fail? Now you can quit smoking for good with this proven and simple program.
