Default A specimen laboratory question

Hi,

Anyone here work in a laboratory or have personally researched this topic?

I'd appreciate professional experience or own experience answers please.

How long does it really take for cigars to completely get out of a person's system.
Wether it blood or urine sample.

Someone I know has to go through some testing and would rather they don't know he smokes cigar's.
I told him one thing for sure. Drinking a few glasses water won't do magic. Maybe that and waiting a week. But I'm not sure.


I once had to go through this once. And lucky it was before I got in to stogies.
I think he had like one every morning for a few days this week. But when they notified him at work about this test. The next day he did not have one.
So how many days would you wait until you would go get blood test?

Thanks

There is someone on this board that get's tested for work, all tobacco products, he just tells them that he used to smoke but quit months ago and he still goes and watches sports at a local cigar bar with his friends, even though he has been testing positive he's been fine.

I was a two stogie/week guy when I got tested. I quit for 2 weeks and passed the test. Depends on one's body and metabolism rates.

Did you actually see the results?

I am very weary of these kinds of tests. They never tell you the threshold and what your value was. You could've failed but they decided to keep you or something similar to that affect.

I believe the amount of body fat can alter how long tobacco stays in the body.

I don't think there's a job in the world that I could love so much that I wouldn't resent like Hell and come to hate for testing me like that.
