    Mickey has a drug test upcoming after being accepted for a job. He has used crack periodically 12 times in the last 40 days, most recently 48 hours ago. He has read this:

    Most labs look for the metabolite, in the case of cocaine it is “benzoylecgonine” that will stay around long after the drug is gone, up to 30 days for a frequent user.

    Age: 50ish
    Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 145
    Metabolism: High

    How long should he wait before taking the test?
    Should he be exercising like crazy? Drinking water?

    the usual detection time ive seen for cocaine is 3 to 5 days. the 30 day estimate would be for a long term daily user. i would say if you could wait 4 or 5 days you should be in the clear, but everyones body is different. when you consume crack how many grams at a time?

    also you should go to a pharmacy and buy some at home drug tests that you can use to test yourself.

    otherwise look into synthetic urine.

    do you know how long until you have to take the test?

    Mickey used 2-3 times a week for 5 weeks. 1/2 gram each time (not high grade stuff). Test would be 60 hours clean time.

    thats cutting it a little too close i think. does the person have access to either synthetic urine, can be obtained by going to a local porn shop, or a head shop. another option would be to get urine from someone who does not use drugs, putting that pee into a condom and them taping it on you groin where it would be close to your skin so the temperature would be right.

    or else you could use one of those pee cleaner drinks, personally i think the synthetic urine is the best option.

    do you know what kind of test they give you? if you just pee in a cup then they use a 5 panel test that gives results right on the spot, or do they send it into a lab?

    i doubt that they would fall for that.

    like i asked is there anyway for you to get your hands on either clean urine or one of those detox drinks. if you cant do that than yes delay it one more day to give yourself a better chance. you could drink lots of water as well, but really that is not going to give the best outcome, if you want to pass it for sure than you need to take a piss cleaner or use another's piss.

    drinking lots of water and putting it off one more day will give a slightly better chance, but jobs are hard to come by these days, and delaying it only one day is not going to guarantee passing the test.

    i have a lot of experience with drug tests, i was on probation for a year and a half or so and passes countless tests that should have been dirty.

    the detox drinks have worked for me in the past, the only thing is if its sent into a lab they could tell that it the sample was diluted, because you have to chug a ton of water with those detox drinks. i wouldn't think that would automatically mean your dirty because you could have just drank a ton of water knowing you had to take a pee test so you wanted to be able to produce a urine sample. is there a porn shop in your town? if there is than you can get synthetic urine. it comes in a pouch that it heated and than held close to your skin so the temperature is correct. than it has a little tube you can tape under your dick, so if they watch you pee in the cup, you wouldn't be able to see the tube unless they take a very very close look at your dick.

    all in all synthetic urine is the best bet, if you dont want to do that than i would use a detox drink, and that should be ok. either option would be better than just strait up peeing. the last time i had a test, i did a half gram of coke just snorted, i took a pee test at my home to see if i was dirty about 72 hours and i was, so i got someone elses clean pee and used that.

    i dont think when you get a pee test for a job they watch you pee in the cup, that more happens for probation tests. so id think you could use someone elses urine.

    [FONT=&quot]please drink plenty of fluids prior to arriving at the testing facility. A urine sample will be collected so fasting is not necessary.

    ok so i think that you should go to your local head show or porn shop and get a bottle of detox drink, take a look over the label and make sure it has instructions. it will tell you not to consume any toxins (drugs) 2 days before the drug test. than follow the instructions on the bottle. ive used these before and they worked for many a number of times. at the very least it would be better than not doing anything and just hoping its out of your system.

    the approximate cost of a drink is around 35 dollars. the test kit wouldn't be necessary, those drinks have never failed me or anyone i know, as long as you follow the instructions. dont use any drugs 48 hours before the test, the longer the better, and the drinks usually give you a 4 to 6 hour window where your urine will be clean, so comsume about 2.5 hours before the test. it will tell you to drink a certain amount of water and urinate often. good luck be sure to let us know how it goes.

    congratz on the new job man. the 35 dollar investment will pay for itself fairly quickly.

    not that i can remember, there are different ones, i have never heard anyone tell me "use this brand its the best" or anything like that. there are also pills, but just get the drink, the pills are for if you have not stopped using drugs 48 hours before taking the drink and are meant to be taken before taking the drink. just dont use, drink the drink, follow the instructions.

    The pills and detox drinks do not work. Suggestion: definitely give it a trial run. Detox drinks can change the specific characteristics of unadultrated urine. Labs have specific testing proceedures to determine if adulteration was attempted. There are also specific
    screening tests performed to detect common detox items. Through much research, it is a safe conclusion to make... That cocaine is the toughest substance to mask. I am unaware about whether or not the labs can detect synthetic urine, such as Synthetix5. Or if human hair eXtensions can be detected. I am curious to hear more stared success stories regarding specific instructions and a product guide, if there are solutions. A hair test is impossible to mask for cocaine use. don't know about masking a Saliva test. Or the requirements to do so. For synthetic urine, evidently it is odorless which can alert collector to request another sample.

    That's much better, & far more likely to not come up dirty.

    I would still get a 'home dipstick test' from the drugstore. Yes, it'll cost you some cash ($20-40, iirc, depending on how many 'panels' you need to check for), but will help you decide if you need to try the detox drink.

    This is the standard mean average drug test detection chart. When putting your self into a position such as new employment to be for forewarned is to be for armed.

    yes that is great news, you i would think you would be clean by that time. but yes buying a urine test to double check a few hours before and then if it says your cleans go ahead, if its not clean, you need to get piss cleaner.
