Hopefully they don't do the etg on me BUT i am afraid they will so I am willing to stick my finger in my ass this once and NEVER drink again until I am done with this program....ahhh help!

Heres the truth... I am court ordered these etg tests twice a week. One friday night I drank half a fifth of jager and passed monday. On the other hand, I have also had 4 full days between drinking and testing and failed with a .40 alcohol level plus a dillution!! I was in shock...and sent to jail! Truth is, these tests are scary as hell and completely unreliable, so the best thing you (and I) can do is avoid all alcohol period and even then pray it passes :(

Maybe you should try cluing in and just stop drinking instead of trying to figure out how to beat some urine test. After all drinking is the reason why you are in trouble now. Obviously drinking is more important to you than staying out of trouble and getting on with life.
Do you cruise all over the internet so you can preach to others? This type of answer was specifically NOT asked for.

I'm kind of wondering the same thing, but my alcohol counselor said that an etg is a completely different test than the 8 panel that includes ethanol testing and only tests back 24 hours. Of course she didn't specifically say this to me and relate it to my situation. However, I think we would know if we are being etg tested, because we would be paying extra for it, right?

I had one bud light seventeen hours before testing
and it came out negative and I went straight to jail. That was embarrassing as shit.

I thought I would start a forum for those having to take urine tests for alcohol on probation. First off-drinking and driving is wrong...bla bla-for those looking to criticize go else where. We know that. Those who have had problems also realize that the system is set to take as much money as possible. In other words-don't get a DUI!
OK-but for those who are on the other side-some insight.
ETG tests can test for up to 80 hours. Usually you can pass in alot less time with variable remedies. I would like to hear from people who have taken this test.
My test is usually a 8 drug panel. I know for a fact it can be passed if you quit drinking for a minimum of 24 hours prior. For me-I am OK to drink on Fri-sometimes Sat since my test is Mon eve at the earliest. I have proven this. I have also proven that I can fail within that 24 hour period if I drink heavily (it was an surprise test-don't get me started).
So please-no do gooders with the BS "what are you" comments. I read them on forums all over the place.
This is for people who maybe want to have some wine at christmas, a beer at a bbq or something "normal" and still be able to finish their probation requirements.
Nothing wrong with that.
Please post any helpful information!
Thanks!

Has anyone tested negative 24 hours after one beer? Went for a run and had protein drik with creative and lots of water before testing.

Just a little helpful
Info. I was involved in a DYFS allegation and had to be tested. They did an 80 hour test and detected a 24 ounce can of beer that I drank on Sunday. My test was on Tuesday morning of the same week. Unbelievable. I've been told 2 shots of apple cider vinegar will clear the alcohol. I haven't tried it.

Got my first DWI in Jan and just went on probation... Haven't had a drink since that day and don't intend to, too damn risky and zero upside. Feel a hell of a lot better every day too. But I am a bit worried about testing. Don't trust the tests or the lackeys who run them. Anyone know what the false positive rates are and (a) what triggers them and (b) whether false positives can be cleared up by confirmation testing? I know to stay away from alcohol mouthwash, nyquil and all the obvious stuff. My worst f*cking nightmare would be staying totally away from drinking, as I am, but going to jail because I used gel antiperspirant or some damn thing..

@AlCaholic: I think he meant it was negative for not drinking.
