Andrew Wants to Quit Smoking; Metabolic Effects?


I’ve smoked for 12 years. I’m 24 years old, and have ALWAYS had a very high metabolism. My wife and I have decided to quit smoking together. My metabolic rate changing does not worry me. What I want to know is this. Seeing as I do have a high metabolism, does that mean nicotine is passed to receptors quicker, and adversely, does nicotine get removed from my bloodstream quicker? I suppose what I’m really interested in knowing is, after my final cigarette, will it take less than the average 72 hours for the nicotine in my body to be filtered out?
