Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your situation. Actually it depends on the amount of alcohol that you consumed at 10 AM, the greater the amount of alcohol consumed the more would be the detection time. Usually alcohol is excreted from the body at a rate of 0.015 BAC (blood alcohol concentration) per hour, so the greater the alcohol level in the body at 10 am the longer it would take.

Now if you had one standard drink at 10 am, then it should be completely excreted within 6-8 hours after ingestion, so there is a good chance that your test will come back as negative however it cannot be confirmed as there is definitely variation in every individual. So again it depends on the alcohol that you consumed, your metabolism and the test which is being done, if it is a EtG test then the consumption would be detected quite easily and if it is a standard alcohol urine screen then there is a good chance that the alcohol would not be detected.

Do you have any more questions?
