    EtG
    I am a 34 year old male. 190lbs and 5'11". I had 5 standard US drinks on Saturday beginning at 3 PM and ending at 4PM. I am wondering what the odds of me passing an ETG test with a 500 cut off if the time between last drink consumption and testing was approximately 60 hours. I had an EtG the week prior and passed.

    Seriously... you get lucky one week so you take another chance then next week. Sorry to be blunt. But you are begging to fail and get caught. Perhaps its time to address the problem and get help for your drinking problem before it causes even worse problems for you than it has already.

    No. I didn't drink the previous week. I was just stating that fact as information to let the person answering know that I hadn't drank in a long time. I have actually not drank for any of my EtG tests. This will be the first time. FYI: I do not take these tests for court or probabation or any program to that extent. I have not had a DUI and I am not in rehab. I was just wanting some opinions on the matter.

    60 hours seems to be the accepted standard between last drink, and an EtG test for passing, but there are too many other factors involved for anyone to say with certainty what your individual outcome will be.
