The PeTH test is primarily to evaluate binge drinking and can be positive for 2-3 weeks after the last consumption of alcohol. In your case, it does not seem that your alcohol consumption is excessive enough to be classified as "binge" drinking. With that said, you will most likely pass this test.

Any additional thoughts, questions?
LC-MS/MS is a mass spectrometry test that measures a range of metabolites for alcohol. The ETOH HPLC tests for any alcohol metabolite in the blood. If you are being treated for chronic alcohol abuse and the tester wants to know if you have consumed any alcohol within the past 30 days, then HPLC will be used. If the tester wants to see if you are consuming alcohol, but not excessively, then they may do the LC-MS/MS method.
The test can be positive for up to 30 days, but usually 15 days. So, since your last alcohol intake was 15 days ago, it will be very iffy, you may test negative, but there are no guarantees. Red blood cells live approximately 120 days and this is what is being tested. If possible prolong the testing for another week.
Did I adequately reply to your concerns?
Did you get the result of your test?
No, giving blood will not affect the outcome of the test. Please let me know if you passed when you get the result.
There is a slight chance.
