How many cigarettes = 21 mg of nicotine?

ASKING THIS BECAUSE THE PATCH IS 21MG---- SO I WAS CURIOUS AS TO HOW MANY CIGARETTES YOU WOULD HAVE TO SMOKE IN ORDER TO GET 21MG OF NICOTINE IN YOUR BODY?
Answers:    Actually, it doesn't work this way which makes it very difficult to prescribe nicotine replacement. Your brain knows how much nicotine that it wants at different times of day. You basically smoke "harder" in the am by drawing the smoke in deeper and holding it longer. This gives you the stimulation needed to face the day. At night, you smoke "lighter" by not drawing the smoke in so deep or holding it so long. This gives you a relaxation dose. Nicotine (like Atropine) has different affects at different dosing levels.

This is also why tapering off cigarettes & "light" cigarettes does not work. Your body simply adjusts how you are smoking to get the dose you need. I had a woman in a smoking cessation class who was so proud of herself for tapering down and using light cigarettes. She wanted to start earlier than the rest of the class. She made the comment that her late husband had said she would suck on a cigarette so hard, that she would draw it out of her ***. When we did the oxygen saturations and carbon monoxide levels, her levels were higher than anyone in the entire class.

People simply start smoking a lower number of cigarettes and lighter and gradually dose up as their addiction demands more. The only way to know the amount of nicotine you are inhaling is to get a urine test that detects nicotine in your body. And don't forget the ammonia and other cancer causing chemicals added so you can get the nicotine into your system faster.
i checked that once, i think it was about ten
if you chew one cigarette it gives 6mg. inhaling gives everyone varying amount of nicotene dpending on a number of variables that we can not define outside a lab. in general these patches are recommended for heavy smokers with the intent of delivering some nicotene but not as much as the cigarettes do
It depends on what cigarette u smoke.
See the cigarette package
it is shown there how much mg. of a nicotine for each stick.
