4 beers over a 10 hour period daily would not be enough to fail the CDT test (my opinion), unless those beers are of the Tennents Super variety.
I still drink daily and have tapered down to now 3 beers an evening.
For me those beers have a combined unit count of 2.7 to 3.6 UK units, prior to this my drinking was at the 24 unit plus per day level, and had been so for very many years.
Drink weaker beer and/ or shandy (0.5% ABV).
Also, if you are struggling with your taper or abstinence, ask your GP for Naltrexone (Google it, it works).
Finally, if you failed after 8 weeks, try 3 months next, and not 3 months of abstinence, but 3 months of drinking at safe (?) levels. The medical profession has recently been instructed that any amount of drinking is unsafe, so probably best to use the old system of less than 14 units per week, but I believe less than 30 per week should be fine.
That's my view, hopefully others will reply also.
