Not sure. Id love to know your results though as I had about 56 hours between drinking and my last drug test. Did they do an ETG test on you do you know? Post your results back, ill find out mine on Wednesday, been crossing my fingers and praying.
So here is my deal. I said I would report back and here it is... I am on probation for DUI and am on color code so I have to call in every weekday and go do UA ,(ALWAYS AN ETG) if my color is called. I am 36, 6'1 and 220 lbs. I am in decent shape but don't exercise as a routine but am pretty active and healthy, normal basically. In the past 2 weeks I have had 2 ETGS in which I had to drop about 60-65 hours since I drank and I passed them both. However, I was nervous as hell. I had about 6-8 drinks both times (shots of Patron and beers). After I drank I drank a shit load of green tea, took vitamins, drank water, and peed a lot on saturday, Sunday, and Monday. I should say one test was on Tues about 530pm when I drank thurs and fri night. On the day of the UA I drank a ton of water and tea up until about 2 or 3 I clock then I stopped, I ate a sandwich to get some protein for creating levels and took vitamins so that my piss would have some color. I have done this 2 times now and passed happily, but I will allow at least 70 hours going forward b/c I was sweating it. I think the key is to not drink so so so so so so so much that you are straight pickled and to flush like a mofo until you drop. I was fully prepared to get a dilute vs. a dirty UA but I think eating some protein a while before dropping and the vitamins helped that. I have another year and a half of this so I will post if anything changes because I get UA'd all the fucking time! Good luck and I hope this helps.

The place I have to drop is 13 bucks for me. That's only when my color is called as well.

Okay so I am on probation, and one of the new stipulations is I can't drink... well, I am lonely, sad, miserable, and depressed and out of work. I have the last of my retirement for my old job and my fed tax return is due in this week. Anyway - I havta meet my po tomorrow, I got blasted Friday night stayed up till 1or 2 drinking, probably drank close to a case of beer... but along with that I drank a gallon of water. I had one beer at lunch today - but have been drinking water like crazy all weekend, and I bought a gallon of cranberry juice to suck down today. I was not told I would be tested, but my po is a prick, and god only knows he's gonna want me to piss in a cup... sound like a fool proof plan? And btw - if you are going to tell me to find God, or not to drink at all - trust me you are wasting your fucking time!

Well I have been living in hell for a week. I drank about 12 beers last Wednesday nite and another 6 on Thursday. I took my ETG test Wednesday. About 125-130 later. I can't sleep. About to go crazy. I have a year of probation and I think I will stay sober the entire time after this. Its only a year.

I read a ton of pages on this forum. Each post makes me want to test the waters again or quit completely because it's 'not worth it.' I agree with that statement but this whole experience makes me want to drink even more which I'm still internally struggling with.

I live in Fort Wayne, INdiana and this county is HARSH! I got a DUI 5 yrs ago and got my second one last year exactly. 2 within 5 yrs is a felony. I was sentenced to Antabuse for 3 yrs, lost my
License for a yr, classes, etc. fucking sucks! I'm a 23 female, have a decent job And in the Army.

I was 6 months sober. Then they took me off the pill jan 1st because I broke out in a terrible rash from the medicine. I started drinking again. A month went by and last week I violated. I have been depressed ever since cuz the counselor and PO at my probation accused me of drinking the whole time, saying all this shit about me that wasn't true. This is the worst thing I've ever dealt with. First offense and I'm going back to court. I have it in 2 weeks and scared shitless. I can't afford a lawyer so I'm getting a public one. Not going to help me I know but what can I do? This one mistake while on Probo might affect my
Whole future. Soooo over this.

All I can say is learn your lesson, don't drink and drive ever again. Call a can or have a friend be a set DD! The system doesn't care about who you are or why you commited the crime. Just try to be smart and safe. It's tough when everyone after your offense makes you feel like a scum bag. Blah, good luck everybody! Felt like venting my story. Lol

I truly think you'll be ok hun!! I understand your anxiety believe me. But especially the fact that you only drank beer, I'm positive the 6 day period since drinking will be fine! I'm no scientist but I've read ALOT of stuff about ETGs and get them every week as it is. Personally, I believe you're good. Just drink alot of water before wed to ensure that ok!

You'll be fine. I passed my last drop after about 56 hours from drinking to dropping. I don't think you'll have an issue. I'm stopping drinking although because to me stressing out for weeks on end after simply peeing in a cup is not worth it just to have a few drinks. Do what you want but being confident about a drug test is an excellent feeling. I only have a few more months of probation so I can hold off personally. It'll be all that much better getting wasted the second I get off.

Does anyone know if Denton County Texas does the ETG test? I just started probation and just got this SCRAM off my ankle 3 weeks ago, but I'm afraid to even have a glass a wine with dinner for fear of screwing up. I would just love to have something close to a normal life while I am at home and do not have plans to drive. Any advice would be welcomed. Never been a big drinker, but I like the taste of a good red wine and a beer after mowing the lawn.

I have no idea. It's quite possible they do. I dont think it would hurt to ask your probation officer. Depending on what you're on probation for they may not. Just be honest with them and hopefully they will be honest back.

Well I am still panicking. I called probation and they said that my ua was ok. Report in April. Would they lie to me and say it was ok and just wait to arest me or not. Not sure. Gonna get all financial crap in order in case im arrested. Decicded not to kill myself. Maybe I'll learn to play chess and poker. What do you do in jail anyway?

I don't think they would lie. If they said you were fine I would just try and forget about it. Never be nervous! Just play by their rules if you can mentally and everything will fly by and you will never have to stress.

They definetly wont lie. They would bring you in imeadietly. I will say this....checking to see if it passed is a red flag to them. Their out look is if you havent done anything wrong why wouldnt it be ok?....just saying. If your going to continue to drink you need to give yourself at least 120 to be safe. Good luck

It was 130 hours before I took the test. I don't pray that much but I have been today. Maybe I'll even go to Catholic Church with my mom this weekend and say thank you. And thanks for responding. Sometimes you need a little comforting. I think I need to say buy to my friend Bud Lite for a year.
