A:   Hello,
Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
Usually nicotine and its metabolites are detectable in urine for 3-4 days after suing it. Now that in your case its been around 10 days, you can be sure that the nicotine test will come negative.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you in future.

Wish you good health!
