Nicotine will stay in your mouth for up to 48 hours after smoking a cigarette, but the drug may still be present in your bloodstream for up to two weeks.

  • Of the 500 compounds that are found in tobacco, nicotine is the most addictive and powerful drug.
  • Nicotine itself is one of the most addictive substances known to man, even more so than crack cocaine and heroin.
  • Nicotine is an alkaloid which is found in plants, it is also present in bell peppers, tobacco and tomatoes. 
  • Nicotine is the compound within cigarettes which makes them addictive.

Nicotine Nicotine enters the brain within seconds of inhaling cigarette smoke, even faster than injecting heroin into your arm. In fact, the nicotine in just one cigar could potentially kill two people if most of it wasn't burned off in the smoking process - the lethal dose of the compound for a human is 50mg.

Nicotine can have both positive and negative effects on your body:

Positive
  • Improves both long and short term memory.
  • Significantly reduces the risk of Parkinson's disease.
  • Improves the ability to perform numerous tasks.
  • Reduces hunger and stress, and increases tolerance to pain.
I'm afraid the positives end there, smokers!

Negative
  • Extremely addictive.
  • Contributes to the onset of Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
  • Blocks sensory receptors.
  • Does severe damage to the heart and nervous system.
  • Numerous other negative health consequences which ultimately shorten life span considerably.

Nicotine is immediately absorbed into the blood stream, even through the tender lining of the mouth. It is gone from the system in 3-4 days
