Hey everyone! Love the forums here! I was a poster under the grow sections (under a diiferent name) a while back when I had the facilities to do that and always got wonderful and though provoking advice. Kinda new to the drug testing forum and I have a few questions. I've been doing some research on the internet for the DOT physical exam and drug testing (DT) process and I'm having some confusion about just how many samples are taken. I've read that during the physical exam part they'll need a sample for testing of blood sugars and a few other non-drug related checks and then they'll possibly need another sample for the DT part???? I've also read posts on here that state only one sample was given but separated into two parts, possibly one part for the drug test and one for the other tests? So I'm not really sure. What's the real deal? Second question is more of getting a feel for how I need to handle my own body for the upcoming DT part. I'm posting way ahead of the test, in fact the test hasn't even been scheduled yet. Let me explain.... About a year ago I applied for this same job, with the city, driving a city vehicle, and I made it all the way through up to the scheduled appointment for the physical exam and DT. I even had balls enough to call the medical facility and ask exactly how the whole process was performed. The person I talked with explained that I would be sent upstairs and perform the DT and then come back down for the physical exam. I had a illness in my family, in another state, that I had to attend to. The illness turned into a death and I had to stay even longer. Therefore I had to cancel my whole application process with the city. I came back to town about a month ago and re-applied with the city, on 6/5/13, and have re-started the whole process again. The city called me on friday 6/20/13 (16 days later) to come in for an interview on the 27th, with a possible physical/DT to follow. I'm pretty sure I'll make it past the orientation/interview part as this was not a problem the last time. Last time it was about a 2-3 week period in between the interview and the physical exam/DT. That gives me about 3 to 4 weeks total. Now the bad part. I quit smoking on 6/5/13 in preparation for the city job, but I had to find another job to keep some money flowing in while I was waiting on the cities call and their whole process which can take considerable time as shown above by when I applied and when they finally called. I did get a in-between job on 6/19/13 and to celebrate I took one, and just one, single bong hit later that same night. I haven't smoked anything, but cigarettes, since. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- To describe myself I am 49, 5'9", weight around 155-160, cigarette smoker, with a VERY high metabolism, so much so for most of my life I can eat whatever I want, as much as I want, and not gain any weight. My current job is outdoors and does require lots of physical labor and can be very strenuous at times. My question is.... What can I do, besides abstaining, to help my body clean up for the city exam and DT? I will go with Quick Fix if it's too late as I have used that before with no problems, but I'd kinda like to do this au-natural if possible. Since it is DOT I don't like the thought of carrying the QF bottle and having to re-hide it for the physical exam. From what I have heard, and read, they usually do the DT first and then the exam. Are there any 5-10 day detox systems that i could use, ...besides the silly foot detox ...lol, that actually work? I'm not looking for dillutions, as I don't trust them, just something to help my body inners get clean, or cleaner. Any help with this matter would certainly be appreciated!!
