How long does Nicotine Stay in your system?

Blog Post created by Giulia Champion on Jul 30, 2017

While doing some research early today I came across this article which I found rather interesting.  Especially the part about how long nicotine may be detected in your hair follicles.  "Traces of nicotine can generally be found in your hair follicles for up to three months after your last exposure. Depending on the hair test used, nicotine may be detected for up to a year after your last exposure."  I wonder if you shave your head after you've quit, whether it remains in the follicles?  Fortunately for those seeking free diapers, they don't do hair follicle testing.  I find it really interesting that the nicotine can be detected in our follicles for up to a year!  Makes that One Year milestone even greater!  (If that's possible!)
