Seriously...

Will alcohol show up on a drug test?

Lets say i go to the royals game tomorrow and do a drug test saturday morning for example, would it show up and fail me? or would it be gone?

Just curious how that works...and no i don't do drugs.

Depends how much you drink, and when you go for the test. It's different for everyone.

As said before, unless they are testing for it and at 2am you couldn't find your ass with both hands you're probably safe.

Heh, this hits home. I was traninig down in Idaho Falls for a job a few months ago and as fate would have it, my brother lives down there. We were going to get together the night before and have some cocktails. It was announced that there would be a drug / alcohol test the next day at work for insurance purposes. Nice timing **** sticks. I went out with my brother, had 6 cold ones and there were no issues (0.0) on the blow the next day. I had two more jobs on the line, so I figured WTF. All worked out well.

From what I've heard, as long as you don't show up to the test drunk you should be OK.

That would seem to fail the common sense approach. If you were to fail, would anyone pass? And if they did, how fucking boring are there friday nights?

Go drink up. You'll be fine.

My brother just got off probation and there is one test that can tell if you have drank anything within the last week, but its an expensive test and I don't know why they would care if you drank within the last week.

I'd say that'd be a bit paranoid on the company. I just know they were impressed with me and didn't even bother with a 2nd interview and just offered it to me, so i doubt anything comes back negative i just am paranoid i guess.

I can't imagine that a new job would test for alcohol. It'd be like testing for tobacco?

The only time I've ever heard of alcohol testing is for minors or probation after a DUI.

That is good to know, the lady on the phone said it would be a drug test. I just haven't had one in a long ass time. Hell the job i just got a few months ago didn't even test me. I've had maybe 3 random drug tests in the past 6 years.

How long do drugs (including alcohol) stay in your system?


The length of time any drug (illicit or prescribed) stays in your system will vary. In large part, it depends on your physiological makeup (e.g., your physical height, weight, your amount of body fat, your age, current state of health, whether or not you exercise mildly-aggressively-or at all). Whether or not you are undergoing any degree of stress (i.e., your "state of mind") at the time you ingest drugs can play a part as well.

Still other considerations include your "frequency" of use (1x per day? 3-5x per day?), the "quantity" of drug you used each time, and the "length of time" (days? weeks? months?) of your consistent drug-use prior to your drug test. Even the quality ("potency") of the drug you ingest determines "how long" the drug is detectable in your system when your urine is analyzed (tested) at the lab.

However, for most people, detectable levels (i.e., shows up as a "positive" in a laboratory drug test) of the following drugs stay in the body for these approximate periods of time.


Alcohol (Beer, Booze, Hooch, Liquor, Wine), 1 hour to perhaps 10 or 12 hours

Amphetamines (Biphetamine, Black Beauties, Crosses, Dexedrine, Hearts), 1-2 days

Anabolic steroids (Stanzolol, Stanazolol, Nandrolene; Steroids, Roids, Juice), oral- up to 3 weeks; injected- up to 3-6 months and more

Barbituates (Amytal, Nembutal, Seconal, Phenobarbital; Barbs), 2-3 days

Benzodiazepines (e.g., Ativan, Halcion, Librium, Rohypnol, Valium; Roofies, Tranks, Xanax), most, 2-3 days; a few, 4-8 days

Cocaine (Candy, Coke, Crack, Flake, Rocks, Snow, Whitecoat), (Candy, Coke, Crack, Flake, Rocks, Snow, Whitecoat), 1-2 days

Codeine (e.g., Fiorinal w/codeine, Robitussin A-C, Empirin w/codeine, Tylenol w/codeine, 1-2 days

GHB (G, Grievous Bodily Harm, Goob, Liquid Ecstasy, Liquid X), 1-2 days

Heroin (Horse, Smack), 1-2 days

Inhalants, just a few hours

Ketamine (K, Kit Kat, Special K, Vitamin K), 2-4 days

LSD (Acid, Blotter, Microdot, Yellow sunshine), a few hours or up to 5 days

Marijuana (Bud, Blunt, Grass, Herb, Pot, Reefer, Sinsemilla, Smoke, Weed), 2-5 days (the daily, heavy user can sometimes be detected up to 30+ days)

MDMA (Ecstasy), 1-5 days

Methadone, 1-7 days

Methamphetamines (Crank, Crystal, Desoxyn, Glass, Ice, Speed), 2-4 days

Methaqualone (Ludes, Quaaludes), 10-15 days

Nicotine (Cigarettes, Cigars, Habitrol patch, Nicorette gum, Nicotrol spray, Prostep patch; Smokeless tobacco, Snuff, Spit tobacco), 1-2 days

Opiates (i.e., Opium: China, Dreams, Laudanum, Paregoric; Dover's Powder), 1-2 days

Oxycodone (OxyContin, Percolone, Roxicodone), 1-2 days



PCP (Angel Dust, Boat, Hog, Love Boat), 1-8 days

If its for employment and not probation or something you should probably be fine just having a few beers. Its probably a standard 5 panel drug test that doesn't even test for alcohol.

Yep. Employers don't want to waste a bunch of money on this either. For pre-employment, you'll get the cheap basic 5 kit.

Now if you drive a semi into a lake, you might want to panic a bit more before the next test.

Plus, alcohol isn't illegal. What the hell does you employer care if you've been drinking while not on the job? Your boss and drug tester are probably getting far more trashed than you tomorrow.
