Welcome to the site.

There are few questions that i would like to know.

1) How much alcohol did you drink every day on an average, measuring in ml for 1 week ?

2) What is your weight ?

3) Were you eating meals regularly or were you not eating food as you would normally eat ?

4) Do you have any liver condition ?

I shall get back to you once you reply to my queries.

Well, you took quite a high amount of alcohol each day in that week, but since you had regular meals plus no alcohol in 1 week, so it is quite likely that the alcohol may not show in the urine analysis since the detection time for alcohol in urine is relatively short as compared to the same in the blood sample.

So there is a good chance that by now your urine sample will show negative result for presence of alcohol in it.

I hope this helps.

Wish you all the best.
