cheers my friend,usually smoke in the lungs last about 6 hours before it is no longer detectable by breath. However, the substance will stay in your system in your bloodstream potentially much longer, so do not be in a position to get drug tested if this is what you are trying to avoid getting detected. Smoking, regardless of the substance, is dangerous to your heart health, even if done infrequently.
