Can blood sample discover smoking?
Nicotine (Cotinine) is not something that is routinely checked for in tox screens. However, it is a chemical, and it does leave traces in both blood and urine for 2 to 4 days. If the aim of the tox screen is specifically to discover evidence of smoking, then yes, a blood sample can show nicotine use.

How to pass a Life insurance test for tobacco?
Smokers are penalized by the insurance industry because of their higher mortality rate. Possner of Exam & Profile Services says, "Cigarettes [nicotine] will show up many days or even weeks after use in somebody's urine. It will probably still show up if someone has refrained from smoking for a short time prior to the exam." If any nicotine does show up, you'll be considered a smoker. And the test even detects nicotine that is delivered through a transdermal patch. What if you're a cigar smoker? "You can have 12 cigars per year, but not one cigarette. If certain levels of nicotine show up in a cigar smoker, they will also be considered a smoker," explains Possner.

Does dip show up in blood test?
Chewing tobacco will show up in a blood test. Despite the name, it is not chewed; 'dip' is held between the teeth and the inner lip. It abrades (makes tiny cuts) in your skin and nicotine is absorbed into the blood stream. Oral cancers are prevalent among users of chewing tobacco. Some consider it worse than smoking.
