    11 hours since last drink ETG
    So I consumed 1 & 1/2 shots of vodka and whiskey last night (Saturday) at approximately 11pm-1am. I stopped drinking alcohol by 1am and had some water and a redbull. I then proceeded to drink 3 16.9 FL oz water bottles, went to bed, and slept for 8-9 hours, waking up periodically to go pee. I woke up at 12pm (Sunday) had to test at 1pm same day. I drank another 3 16.9 water bottles consecutively and a cup of coffee before testing. I'm assuming the chances of passing are slim, maybe 50/50? Can anyone share insight or anything relatable?

    When as in you assume I will? I'm hoping for a possible dilute. I'm on probation this will be my first positive so I don't know.

    Bear in mind a dilute often has the same overall effect as a FAIL.

    With 11 hours you will probably fail, dilution a big factor too.

    It would seem to me after having been on probation a while, you would have known better than to jeopardize it, and then add further damage by trying to hide it, rather than just face whatever consequences which would likely be a retest, or providing an explanation for whatever level was detected.

    So the real question is are you under a zero tolerance order, or some other acceptable level of passing? If you don't know after all this time then you should never have drank anything, and certainly not added to it with the risk of CERTAIN failure through dilution.

    Probation officers hate it when deception is detected, and a small slip can be forgiven with a track record of compliance. That's a better shot than the one you took. You are now at the full mercy of the probation authority. And yes I have been on both sides of this situation.

    I didn't ask for a lecture or your judgement. If you can't offer any non-biased insight you probably shouldn't be on this website. I'm new on probation (first time offender) just fyi. There can also be a reasonable explanation for dilution or slight failure since the test can detect how much over the cutoff you are: Kombucha tea, didn't eat before test, etc... I didn't go on a crazy binge with no regards for the consequences, I had one and a half drinks since I had tested prior that day, didn't expect to test two days in a row. Thanks for your input though. I won't be risking anything again.

    Your probably gonna need at least a day,more if you drink a lot. The only way to pass is make sure 80hrs pasted since your last drink or stop drinking.
