Hi Travis -
Your test results may come back positive or you may test negative . . . for your particular situation it will be a close call. Nicotine from tobacco, snuff or even patches or gum stays in your system 2-3 days if you are an infrequent user. It stays in the system of chronic users for 7-14 days.
Hope this info helps,
And FYI for the nurse who also responded - Life insurance companies often test potential policy holders because smokers have been known to LIE on their applications in an attempt to qualify for the cheaper, non-smoker rates.
