In case of nicotine, the most important feature is the rate of 
metabolization. It is unusually fast, this is because smokers need to 
smoke continually and it is pretty rare that people die of nicotine 

But I can attest that undernourished people with bad health can have 
problems when smoking. They are unable to clear their blood fast enough, 
so the level grow and they fall at the ground. This rarely cause serious 
consequences (apart the traumatic ones) because they stop smoking when 
they fall and then the level of nicotine start to fall.
