    swim did a shot of heroin this morning at about 12 o'clock and he has to take a urine test tomorrow at around 5. swim is pretty slim and has a very fast metabolism. If swim drinks a lot of water today and tomorrow before the test, will he be fine? how long does it stay in your system if you shoot it? ive heard it stays in your system for a less ammount of time than if you were to snort it. true?

    Re: how long does H stay in your system if you shoot it?

    As far as I know, the halflife of heroin is 3 hours. This means, after 3 hours, half of the amount swiy injected will still be floating around in their body. After three more hours, half of that remaining amount will be gone, and so on...

    A halflife of 3 hours means SWIY would have 1/2 of what SWIY took left in their system in 3 hours, 1/4 after 6 hours, 1/8 after 9 hours. SWIM has heard it's up to 4 days before its not detectable but SWIM has passed tests they shouldn't have. In SWIM's opinion, there are a lot of things that can play into it, if SWIY system was clean before, metabolism, type of test, etc.

    If SWIY has access in short time (nearby head shop) and money, SWIM would suggest urine substitution as the best method to pass a test if it is unmonitored. Otherwise its a crap shoot and SWIY very likely may loose.

    But if this substitution isn't possible and the drugs are already done, do the best SWIY can. If SWIY drinks too much water, the test will come back inconclusive and SWIY may need to repeat the test - this could be another chance if SWIY isn't going to be in the same situation on the re-test. Two inconclusives are usually considered a fail (and only one inconclusive may be considered a fail depending on the reason for the test, etc).

    SWIM body has metabolized H pretty fast in the past....it would take 2 days max to get out of SWIM's body....SWIM put this theory to test it out and shot 1/2 gram and no metabolites were detected after 24 hours

    The half -ife of Heroin is EXTREMELY short, as in minutes or less. This is because it breaks down into morphine almost immediately. The point is that the heroin metabolites (morphine, 6-MAM, the metabolites of morphine, etc) stay in your body much longer and facilitate detection a couple days into the future. Also, they don't just look for junk -- they look for common adulterants (quinine) too. Booting up the day before a urine test is extremely unwise...

    Heroin is detected in urine as 6-acetylmorphine and morphine.

    6-acetylmorphine is detectable in urine for up to 18-24 hours post-administration of heroin. Morphine is detectable in urine for 1-4 days post-administration of heroin. Typical cutoffs are 10-300 ng/mL.
