Hello,
I'm wondering if I smoke 5 cigarettes, how long will it take until the nicotine leaves my system. Because there are hair drug test and I need to know whether they will be able to catch me with the chemicals/nicotine in my system. (Side note: i'm not a heavy smoker just recreational, like about 1 or 2 cigarettes every other day)
Any help would be appreciated, but if possible I would love for a expert to be able to provide the information. Thanks a lot
