    3 beers EtG test?
    I drank 3 beers Saturday starting at 7pm and last one at about 9pm. I gave my urine at 2:30pm on Monday afternoon. Won't get results back till this Monday coming up? Should I be as nervous as I really am? I'm 5'11 about 160 lbs. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

    Yeah.. you need to be nervous. You will probibly fail with that little time between the drinking and the test.

    I'd be nervous too. Why the ETG test? What happens with a fail and were the 3 beers worth it?

    Had a dui a while back... have to complete this program... court required. Def wasn't worth it... I figured 3 beers will be completely gone within 40 hours. Not like I was drinking hard liquor or shots. Beer has low % of alcohol for my body to process. I drank decent amount of juice and water throughout Sunday but who knows.

    Drinking water and juice does nothing, they will fail you for diluted urine samples.

    Good news, bad news. Its 80 hour beer or hard stuff. One failed EtG won't put you in the clinker. The EtG is somewhat unreliable and often gives false positives and false negatives.If, when your results come up positive they will likely pull you back in for more radom tests.

    I heard up to 80 hours was like extreme casses. I read so many different opinions its impossible because there's so many things to take in account. 80 hours seems a little crazy for just 3 beers. I figured at least 40 hours I would be good but what do I know.

    We are talking less than 48 hours... that's way less than 80 hours. 40 is a pipe dream.

    And you are being tested under the strictest standards.....not the more lenient pre-employment screening standards.
