    also if you go to your own gp they should carry out the same test free of charge to give you some indication of what your results will be ( my gp offered his and im having mine done today).

    hmmmmm, i sound pretty similar to you really, although i'm 27.
    on a standard week i'lll probably have 2 pints a day at lunch, then a fair bit on friday and sat night, but not exactly smashing a bottle of vodka every day!

    I reckon i'll go a couple of weeks with no drinking and before that try and cut down.

    it's annoying how vague this whole process is. and also how pointless. it's not like i'm going to go Tee total because of this! as soon as i'm done i'll be drinking as much as before - obviously not when i'm going to be driving though!

    its hard to know what to do with there being no set guidelines and everybody must be different . dont know if you know but if you fail the medical you have to wait (cant remember if its 6 months or a year) to retake it so i would have a test at your gp 6 weeks or so before just to be on the safe side

    yeah i know about that, it's 6 months i think. hence why i'm doing my best to find out as much info as i can. i am NOT adding 6 months to this ban!

    I would say two pints per day and then a fair bit on the weekend is quite a lot. You would definately have to reduce that to pass safely. Being cautious is better than having to wait 6 months

    OH totally agree, don't worry that's just me 'at my peak' as it were. i've already massively reduced that and plan on reducing further. just good to know that i don't have to become a bloody Nun for the next 8 weeks!
