Just curious about how alcohol stays in your system. My Ex

Customer Question

Just curious about how long alcohol stays in your system. My Ex wife is putting me through the ringer with false accusations so now once a week I have to take a urine test that tests for drugs and alcohol
JA: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?
Customer: I don't have to take one today, but I'll need to take one next friday. I think it's a standard urine test I have to do this for 6 weeks. I figured if pilots aren't allowed to drink two days before a flight due to a possible test I think I can have a few drinks up until tuesday
JA: Is there anything else in your medical history you would like the doctor to know?
Customer: No

Hello and welcome.

The etg test for alcohol can detect whether someone has consumed alcohol within the past 80 hours.

So basically if you're tested, say, four days or longer after your last drink you will test negative.

Please let me know if you need any more information
