    How long do cigars stay in your system?

    I'm having a life insurance policy put in place for work and my insurance agent asked me if I smoke. I said only cigars. She said they count that and that it takes around 3 weeks to get that fully out of your system. The rate is significantly different for non-smokers (several hundred dollars per year). For that amount of money I suppose I can wait that long (that pains me to say), but is that really accurate? I think the tests are blood tests.

    You forgot to say how often you smoke. I know "someone" who had a blood test for the exact same reason 10 days after smoking a stogie and the test was negative. This same "someone" at the time was only smoking about one a week.

    I've heard two weeks, but go with three to be on the safe side. It will be worth it in the long run.

    I have neither any medical training, nor an insurance background. This is based solely off a fellow BOTL's experience. He was told by his insurance agent 2 weeks, and as far as I know, everything was a-okay (BTW, he smoked an average of two a day +/-).

    Hope that helps.

    My insurance agent was helping me try to avoid having to pay the extra. She watches out for us luckily.

    I had to get a life insurance policy for my job aswell. I just told the guy I didn't smoke or use any tobacco products and that was the end of it. I don't think they test for it in blood samples,God knows I had enough of them, nothing ever came up. My GF told her agent that she recently quit when she was getting her policy, they swabbed her mouth for traces of nicotine. My guess is you should've kept mum about the cigar smoking.

    I'd lay off of them for a couple weeks to be safe. Good Luck.

    If you don't inhale, shouldn't the time be significantly less than a cigarette smoker that does inhale?

    The blood tests happen anyways for what i'm doing. My insurance agent told me the stuff about smoking as a precaution and said if you do that it will be important to wait 3 weeks so the tests come back clean.

    That sounds like something German like circa 1940.

    Thats a great idea - then you would have been swiftly sued and shown the door, it is never a good idea to offend the person who is about to put an annual cost for something you will be paying out of pocket - but hey thats just me.

    Maybe I'm tired of the flu and took that too literally?

    Haha

    I think I heard the average time through the digestive system is anywhere between 24 and 72 hours.
    The real question is, why are you eating cigars?

    I work in the insurance biz, and I can tell you that the urine test you submit for a life insurance application/policy does indeed check for tobacco. The rates will normally triple or so based on age for a smoker. If you drink lots of water and eat nothing with salt over the next few days, it should leave your system. Most will only stay for about 7 days. You can buy sample tests at CVS or online for about $15 that will check it for you.
