PETH requires heavy drinking of 3-4 drinks a day for several days to be positive.

I bet your Peth test will be negative

I went to new Orleans about a week and a half ago and had 5 or six beers will that play a factor?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

yes, that could play a factor in the peth testing.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

peth testing checks for heavy alcohol use within the last 3-4 prior weeks.

Is there any way to decrease my chances of failing it?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

no, there is no way to beat a Peth tests.

if you have trouble with heavy alcohol use like this, you should seek medical counseling and support groups and treatment from your doctor to be able to stay away from alcohol

there are treatments which can help you stay away from alcohol.

Thank you I don't have drinking problem I just want to insure I don't fail this test....
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

I see.

the best way to insure you don't fail the test is to avoid alcohol completely prior to testing.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
