I had my last drink at 8pm Monday and have to go for an ETG

Customer Question

I had my last drink at 8pm Monday and have to go for an ETG between 4pm and 5pm. if I count the days as 24 hours then that should be about 32 hours. Since yesterady I have been drinking water and the diet lemonade detox which is organic syrup 2TB, 1/10 tsp of Keyenne pepper, 2TB of fresh lemon juice and warm water in a 10 once glass. I'll probably have 7 of those today, and 7 glasses of water. or maybe 6/6. do you think I'll be ok on the test

Hi,

Depending on the amount of alcohol that you have had, there is every chance that an ETG done after 32 hours is likely to come positive.

The role of all the other measures is not reliably known.

It would be best if the test could be postponed for 1-2 days,

Warm regards
