    Ok, swim tried going over the rules again to see if this is allowed or not, if not please just delete this thread but an answer would really help me out.

    The story: I have very strict probation where he has to take a drug test once a week. If not for that, I would prob be an everyday user. Every week going to take a test i worry unless swim stops using 3 days prior to allow it to get out of swims system. What would be the approximate time for someone who uses couple times a day for 3-4 days out of the week to be clean? I got mixed answers that its 2 days and some said 3 days. Also, does drinking alot of water really help it get out of your system faster?

    Any answers appreciated, again if this is not allowed i would be grateful if i could get off with a warning and have this thread deleted.

    I was in the same position for many years at one time in his life. He has passed tests as early as 18 hours after prolonged daily use but has also failed them 4 days after.... I think it really depends on your daily routine. Exercise, activity, body weight, etc... Health can have a lot to do with it as well. Which is why I think I started failing UA's later in his heroin career... I dont know if this helps any but this is his experience

    I thought Ru posted on this before, but I can’t find it. Perhaps it was on crack vs. cocaine metabolism.
    Key:

    Anyway, From R.B.C.:

    Volunteers were given 70mg of Heroin via intravenous infusion. In the 40 hour urine approximately 45% of the dose was recovered as urinary metabolites: 4.2% Morphine, 38.3% Conjugated Morphine, 1.3% 6-Acetylmorphine and 0.1% unchanged Heroin. Morphine was excreted mainly in the early hours of the study and very little was found after 12 hours had passed. Maximum urine concentrations of total Morphine averaged 116 mg/L between 5.6 and 8.6 hours following the start of the 7 hour infusion (Elliot et al., 1971). 6-Acetylmorphine is present in urine in 64-73% of all Heroin users studied, averaging approximately 0.8 mg/L and ranging up to 10 mg/L (Fehn and Megges, 1985; Derks, et al., 1986). Urinary elimination half-lives averaged 0.6, 4.4 and 7.9 hours for 6-Acetylmorphine, Morphine and Conjugated Morphine, respectively, in 6 volunteers given a single 6 mg intramuscular H dose (Cone et al., 1991).

    Thank you both for sharing, @mswine lol now you have me quite nervous that i might unexpectedly fail a drop, swim never spends more than a $100 during the week on their supply, usually around $50 3-4 days in a row.. and swim never drops any earlier than 2 1/2 days, approximately 60 hours after using..

    And Thank you also Mr Jiki, however would you please be able to explain that in an easier way to interpret??? lets just say 1 bag is .1mg(idk the exact weight), from what i got out of that is 6mg's takes up to 8 hours to get out of your system?? And i know that cant be right.
