Tobacco
Expert:  Dr SH replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for the additional information.
The test that is done for tobacco is nicotine test. This test can identify nicotine use for up to 2 weeks usually.
If someone has smoked a cigarette only once or occasionally, he/she may actually have a clean test much earlier. As a regular smoker, it is unlikely that you will be able to pass a test before ten to fourteen days of abstinence.
