Brief Answer: It can take up to 48 to 72 hours. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Thanks for writing to us It can take 48 to 72 hours or more for nicotine and its components to leave the body after quitting nicotine but residual nicotine can stay in body system for up to two weeks. Your test should be negative by one week. Exercise increases the body metabolism rate and help in clearing nicotine. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome.
