Whether it be prior to starting a new job, for probation, or for any other circumstance, taking a drug test is not usually something that any of us our jumping out of our seats to go do. If your body is clean of all illegal substances or toxins, then obviously you do not have anything to worry about and passing that drug test will be a breeze. However, if you occasionally indulge in certain illegal or legal substances that could cause you to fail your test, I’m sure there is anxiety pulsing through your body.
If you know ahead of time that you will be getting drug tested, then you should not be messing around and taking chances in the first place. It is not worth losing a job opportunity or putting yourself in jail over a temporary high. Now, in the case that you are hit with a surprise drug test and you think you may have some type of illegal drug in your body, you will need to know how to get clean as soon as possible so that you are able to pass the test. There are many different methods that people may claim do or do not work when it comes to getting yourself clean to pass a test, but in this article, I will be going over a few proven methods that should not let you down.
Don’t Do Drugs
This is by far the easiest way to pass a drug test – just avoid the drugs in the first place. While temporary highs may feel great in the moment, the long term consquences just aren’t worth the risk. Not only could you lose a job or get in trouble with the law, but they can cost you a lot of money and even friendships.
This is one of the most basic and common known ways to get drugs out of your system, exercising. You may not know this but most drugs are stored in the fat cells inside your body. Meaning if you happen to have drugs in your system and need to get them out as soon as possible, you should exercise as much as possible. The more you work out and sweat, the faster the toxins will exit your body. After vigorously working out, it is not a bad idea to go sit in the sauna for a few minutes to continue and sweat out whatever drug is in your system. It is also important to drink lots of water and stay away from sugary drinks such as soda as these will basically keep the toxins stuck to your fat cells.
I have heard of some that work and I have heard of some that do not work. Most of these drinks come with money back guarantees now as well. So, if you need to pass a drug test immediately and have no time to get clean on your own, then this may be your only option. My suggestion would be to go to your local smoke shop or health store and talk to an employee and ask him or her what product they feel would work best for your situation. I would also check out some reviews online and see what has worked for other people. Detox drinks usually need to be taken an hour or two prior to your drug test so that the drink has time to enter your system by the time you need to take the test, so make sure you give yourself enough time to take the drink before you head out for your test.
Find a Friend That Is Clean
I know many of you may think this is disgusting, but sometimes you just have to make sacrifices to get through struggles you encounter in life. If you screwed up and hit a joint at a party on Sunday afternoon and have a surprise drug test for your dream job on Monday, then I am pretty sure you will do whatever it is that needs to be done to pass the test. This can even include using another friends urine.
If no one is going to be watching you during the test then this may be the easiest and cheapest method. Have a friend that is clean fill up a sample size shampoo bottle or something that will hold at least a few ounces of liquid. Wrap the bottle in a heating pad or keep it somewhere that it will stay 90-98 degrees until you get into the office and take the test. Once you’re clear of the doctor, pour the contents of the bottle into the sample cup the doctor gave you, wash your hands, and be on your way.
When it comes down to it, there are many different methods to passing a drug test, these are just a few of the main ones that have been known to work. The smartest thing for you to do would be not to engage in any activities in which you would be around drugs in the first place. This way you never have to freak out or go out of your way to try and pass a drug test. I don’t know about you, but to me, my career and livelihood is too important to risk by messing around with any type of drugs!
