this is from mike GF! who gives you the right to judge others? Obviously, people have their own problems, and those who are fighting to overcome the, should be commended, not condoned!! i personally have seen him go thru this struggle fro 12 years, and it's people like you who are the ones who want to make them give up! shame on you!! must be nice to live a "perfect" life!

I am actually hardly ever on the internet (less than 5 times a month unless seon vacation) which , should go to show you how insensitve, inconsidarate, and flat out rude and inaccurate your"opinion" if you want to call it that, truly is. Do a little thinking/soul searching and see if you can show semblance of a man by correcting or at bear minimum rephrase or show some compassion to those who would literally give their arm or leg to never have to deal with this condition ever again. Everyone says things they may not mean or completely understand but be a REAL MAN and correct your post to give some people a little bit of hope cuz trust me I know from experience unforunately and every negative response you get makes it that more difficult while in retrospect every positive response gives you a little hope which can mean the difference between life and death. Imagine for a moment that it was tour son, daughter, wife, or other loved one reaching out for help. All of this is sent and said with good intentions not to be confrontational.

Wow I was just researching information on the ETG and came across this great forum of information. I understand about feeling like an idiot, stupid, crazy even. I'm on probation doing the color calling thing and went the whole 9 months (3 left!) making my payments, passing the tests and not drinking. After a very hellish nightmare I went and bought not one, not two, but three cases of beer and drank until Tuesday. They called today wanting an ETG test.(My luck, but my fault). Since Tuesday I have passed (not to be gross, hope I don't offend anyone) tons of diarrhea, blood, vomiting, nausea, insomnia, and have peed every 20 minutes (literally) I was keeping track of how much I was peeing, and between Tuesday and today it's only been 35 hours (maybe...). I'm screwed, aren't I? I'm having the DT's so bad I wanted to go to the hospital but was afraid they would tell my P.O. why I was there. I've really tried to stop this addiction, went head strong into therapy, and was very happy not drinking! I've been raised in an alcoholic family, and I have experience in medical, I always said I was glad I didn't get the disease. But, I think I do. I'm a female of about 5'3 and maybe 110 on a day where I haven't fasted. Any idea if I have a stroke of luck, good karma, or a prayer answered? I like the information. I don't like the ones that accuse, make you feel worse. TRUST ME---we feel bad enough. Thanks.

I've taken the 16 panel test, the next day after having at least 4 beers and still passed. I honestly believe that unless you don't sober up 12-24 hours prior, or drink WAY too much you will be okay. Drink water beforehand, have a fast metabolism, and hope for the best. By all means avoid illegal drugs, as those are a much bigger deal. Please for the sake of all involved never drink and drive. I can't blame you for wanting a beer, we are americans and it is our right to pursue happiness, even if it's in a bottle.

The ETG test is super sensitive... but the threshold of the test is what makes the difference. They are not looking for "1 glass of wine" which will produce a certain level of ETG in your system and flush 99% out within 24 hours... they're looking for the people who are hard core drinking when they're not supposed to be.(I am one of these people, so I'm not trying to kick at anyone's chair... just telling you how it is).

I personally try not to drink anything for 3 days prior to my PO appointment. I also drink a lot of energy drinks with anti-oxidants,etc. daily and I run and work out a lot... so even after drinking a day before a test, I didn't pop above the "designated threshold" (and I have no idea what that level actually is).

I think if you flush your system, and go work a good sweat for a few hours and just keep flushing with water and green tea and take your vitamins you should be OK. Just don't push your luck.

My 2 cents.

im on probation now for OWI in indiana 6 months probation and im facing two months if i fuck up so i was wondering what kind of test do you think they will give me? i know that it is only urine i dont do any illegal drugs i just like to drink on weekends sometimes to much hence the OWI but i see my probation officer monthly and im under the impression that they send my sample to a lab i just want to hear thoughts on how long they can detect alcohol in my system and how many days prior to my meeting should i stop drinking?
I just started going to a drug and alcohol group, and the group leader said they have a test that detects up to the past give days.

Good luck, good karma, good prayer sweet heart. I KNOW it's hard. Hang in there. Do your best. Don't let other's criticism increase your guilt. If someone shined a light on their troubles (& we ALL have them) they would be a little more compassionate.

I have read everything everyone has had to say. I have done ALOT of research on the ETG....it can go up to SEVEN days and there is NO way to beat it. The average "long" time is 80 hrs with most people falling in the middle range at 66 hrs can pass. How ever in my researching came across another test That I am sure will be used very soon....hair and nail testing which can detect alcohol for up to 3 months. The only way to fool the hair one is bleaching the hair or to be exposed to chlorine constantly. The nail one is un-stopable.The ETG is based on what level they are looking for. 500ng is recommended so that the incidental from outside sources is ruled out. It can go as low as 100ng.

The ETG is a test on your urine to detect alcohol in your system even after ethanol has left your body. It can detect even the smallest amounts...such as a dose of nyquil. There is no way to beat it. Time is all you have. It can test 0-80+ hrs. I was told by a testing site can vary up to 100hrs but not higher than 150hrs.
