i had a friend drink a combination of vinegar and water, and they passed a urine test 3 days after smoking a fair amt of weed, so you could try that.
@emecom, the job is at Best Buy. Yeah, sure, not the biggest deal in the world but I really do need some income soon and the pay is pretty decent for a college town like mine (not to mention the deals you get as an employee on their merchandise).
I’m going to be really disappointed in the situation if I don’t get the job because of a failed drug test. Sigh…only time will tell I suppose.
@dchrist, I hadn’t eaten anything for several hours when I took the test and I had only been drinking water. The pee was still definitely yellow-tinted, but definitely also diluted to a pretty decent degree.
As for the complete dilution you are talking about, this place sends the cup off to another location to be tested. One of the ways you can fail is if they say it’s too diluted. It’s an auto-fail, so not something I could have pulled off even if I had wanted to.
@xdiodude7x, Again, I have already taken the test. I only was seeking some insight on whether my specifically listed circumstances were favorably for passing or not.
@lytning91, When do you find out? I am pretty curious to know whether you failed or passed.
@emecom, They said the results come back to the lab between 3-5 days (basically however long it takes for the same to arrive at the place and then them test it and phone the lab back with the information). From there, they contact the management directly with the green or red light, and then I suspect they call me back.
I’m actually kind of afraid that, in the case of a failed test, they won’t bother to call me. That would make this waiting game THAT much worse. If they are responsible, though, they call me either way. I expect to get a phone call Monday. If I don’t get one by about 2:30, I’m going to call the lab myself and see if the information has come in.
I’ll let you know if i remember to
(I know you already took it, but I’m just putting in my personal opinion on the matter)
@lytning91, Work out a bunch, if you’re overweight it takes longer to get out of your system.
@lytning91, The longest I’ve ever heard of it staying in the system was 50 days.
@sisyphus, I believe I did take the browns to the super bowl that morning, so hopefully that will have factored in beneficially.
@thomaschong, if only I had thought about it before, I would have started going to the gym in the weeks leading up to it. I really hope it was enough time…the suspense is killing me. I had hoped they’d just pass/fail me right there in the lab, but NOOOOO gotta mail that crap off to another city!
I have also heard of people that haven’t smoked in a long time but started working out before an upcoming drug test then failing because there is THC collected in their fat cells that wouldn’t have shown on a drug test but since they exercised and broke down the fat cells they ended up failing.
@emecom, interesting theory. Maybe that will benefit me somehow. It’s just so frustrating to have this one little thing potentially wreck the next several months or even years for me.
Wow, im supprised how little knowledge is in this thread other than “drink water”.
Lemme drop my methods on ya.
The most important issues with passing a test are exersize and diet, but metabolisim plays a key role in how easily you can get away with it. From the moment you know a test is coming, you want to burn as much fat as possible. Any sort of cardio. Over exert yourself if you must. Jog with trash bags on, do whatever you gotta do. Cut fat out of your diet for this period. For the week before your test, you want to do as LITTLE physical activity as possible, especially the day before and day of your test. You want as LITTLE fat in your sample as possible. So try your best not to burn any. Be super lazy. Eat high fat meals all week to replace your body with your clean fat.
Dont buy into detox drinks.
@lytning91, and not to ruffle your feathers or anything, but in all honesty, I wouldnt feel too confident about that sample.
Ive also heard that taking stimulants to speed your metabolism during exersize can flush the body in half the time, but it never sounded safe to me. My metabolism is already pretty quick.
Sorry for the late respnse. and GOOD LUCK man. Drug tests blow.
@bigred, It’s funny, because I was told actually that you are supposed to pee some, then take a sample, then pee some more. I really did catch the middle of my pee stream, so that’s kind of positive. And that said, I also did very little the days prior. It definitely sucks that I didn’t ask about this sooner, but I was almost convinced they weren’t even going to test me at all.
I am definitely not confident, despite almost everyone saying I am going to pass, so no worries there. I already have a backup plan to use if I do end up failing it.
@bigred, I’m pretty sure if you read the thread you would have noticed people throwing around all sorts of ideas other then just drinking water. And just because your system works for you, doesnt mean everyone else has “little knowledge on the matter” and that only your system will work. I smoked my way through 10-15 UA’s using my system. Why even say that first sentence?
@yoinkie, I’m sure he didn’t really mean it like that.
Also, an annoying update: I tried to call the lab today to see if they have my results in and they told me they don’t get the results…told me to call the customer service number for the place they shipped my sample to.
I call the number and wait through the “If you would X, please press Y” and it finally came: “If you are calling about your test results, please press 6″
“Because of our company requirement to keep the confidentiality of its patients a priority, we cannot give results out over the phone. If you would like to know your results, please speak with the physician or Employer that requested the test.”
In short, I am going to be forced to hear from my employer even if I fail…that’s gonna suck if I did. Gah, so nerve-racking!!!
@yoinkie, because i diddnt read the thread thoroughly, my time on the computer is limited, so i work a little faster than is compltely effective.
@bigred, Give me a likelihood that you think I’ll be ok based on the details given here-in
@lytning91, well, as @yoinkie said, everyones diffrent. Metabolism plays the most important roll. What you did the days leading up to the test are most important.
but im no scientist or doctor. ive just taken alot of tests.
only failed 2. My first, and my last.
but ya, as i said, goood luckk mannn. its the wait thats torture. finding out isnt that bad.
let me know how it goes. im curious now.
Got the job and everything is going swimmingly. Can’t wait to get my first paycheck (mainly because I actually NEED it).
@xdiodude7x, One of my friends who had smoked weed almost daily when he took a drug test managed to pass after two days without smoking by drinking tons of water, cranberry juice, working out and took a niacin pill
