The nicotine should be out of your system within 3 - 4 days after your last cigarette. But the cravings for it will last quite a bit longer since nicotine is addictive both physically and psychologically.

Nicotine leaves your system rapidly, in a matter of hours. It is the damage nicotine does to the nervous system, and the time it takes for it to return to normal, that causes the withdrawal symptoms and adds to the recovery time. most report 5 days to be clear of nicotine and the rest of the giving up process is resisting the temptation to smoke.
