Patient :I smoke aprox 2-5 cig a week its only on weekends. I use to be a pack a day smoker for many many years but stopped that aprox 8-10 weeks ago. I am quitting totally today and will not engage in my weekend smoking. I plan to maintain this as I do not want to smoke any longer out of fear of a full relapse. I need to test for cotinine and not sure how long to wait.. I am over weight.
