Nicotine takes approximately 1 to 3 days to leave your system, but it can take 2-3 months for the brain receptors to stop craving it. Withdrawal symptoms can last from two weeks to several months, but significantly improve during that time. Be sure to drink plenty of water, eat well, stay active and get adequate amounts of rest.
