Good morning, Tina. What can we help you with? Are you needing suggestions for keeping your companion out of the ashtrays?

There's more info here on nicotine toxicity, if that's what you're concerned about. Assuming your companion is around 10#, he'd need to eat 2-4 whole cigarettes for there to be a toxic level of nicotine present in his body. You may well still see vomiting and diarrhea, however.
