Customer Question

I have to give urine soon for an ETG test. On Friday, I had two mixed vodka drinks, and a martini, followed by two 12oz servings of 10% beer. I drank a bunch of water that night, and woke up Saturday, played basketball, and drank a ton of water.Later that night I had:
1 16oz 4% beer.
1 16oz Stella Artois (5.0%)
1 16oz 4.5% beer
One mixed vodka drink.At 9pm that evening was the last time I ingested alcohol. I had a bunch of water that night.The next day, Sunday, I spent 30 minutes in a sauna, lifted weights, sweated profusely, drank a TON of water all day, urinated over 15-20 times, and I played basketball and went on 2 separate 1.5 mile runs.Today, I got up and lifted weights at 8am, spent a total of 1 1/2 hours sweating in a sauna. I have drank water constantly all day, I have urinated over 15-20 times.I give urine in 2 hours. It will 45-46 hours since I last ingested alcohol.I'm 29, 6'0, 225 pounds, I lift weights regularly, and have a decent amount of muscle.Do I have a chance of passing this ETG test?

Hello

You have some chance, but studies indicate detection from 25 to 50 hours.

You are borderline at this point.

50/50 , as an educated guess.

I have been sweating like a pig all day in saunas, and drank well over a gallon and a half of water today and yesterday

That is the question.

Same answer.

From the last time you had alcohol, there is a chance it will show.
