DRUGS STAY IN YOUR SYSTEM: The length of time any illicit or prescribed drugs stay 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 in how long drugs stay in your system, 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 drugs stay in your system and will be detectable 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 your system for the approximate periods of time shown below. As you review the drugs, please keep these three thoughts in mind, too:
“Drug-Use Is Life Abuse…Drug-Use Is Self-Abuse…Drugs Destroy Dreams!”
How long do these drugs stay in your system?
Alcohol (Beer, Booze, Hooch, Liquor, Wine): these drugs stay in your system a very short time, 1 hour to perhaps 10 or 12 hours (Yes, alcohol IS a drug! Drinking more than “in moderation” can lead to alcohol (drug) abuse…and perhaps alcoholism. During 2012, an estimated 10,839 people in the U.S. will be killed by too-boozed-up DRUNK drivers! THAT’S ONE DEATH EVERY 50 MINUTES. PLEASE DON’T BE ONE OF THEM!) CLICK HERE for more information about alcohol abuse and alcoholism.
