Can you drink alcohol after scoliosis surgery?

User Avatar
Of course you cannot drink alcohol after surgery, the pain meds prescribed would cause havoc if alcohol is then introduced. It is not advisable to drink when taking pain medication. However, once you have healed and are no longer on medications, it would be fine to drink some alcohol.

How many O'douls non alcoholic beer can you drink and still be okay to pass an ignition interlock test?

User Avatar
Depends solely on a number of factors. O'Douls beer has 0.5% ABV, and II tests require you to have a BAC < 0.02. Since BAC varies per person because of weight and body build, I cannot give you a definitive answer. Drinking and driving, regardless of whether you are over the limit or not, is considered illegal, and yes, you can still get arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, even if you have only had 1 beer.

How do you beat a urine alcohol test?

User Avatar
Alcohol stays in your system for a short time so the best way is to drink on the weekends except for Sunday and you will have plenty of time for the alcohol to leave your system. There is no remedy for removing the alcohol from your system other than the natural course of your body's filtration. People claim that coffee, water and other things can dilute or remove it from your system but that simply isn't true. Just as people claim the same things can dilute the effects of alcohol is also not true. Alcohol leaves your system like anything else, naturally.

Does charcoal mask an etg urine test for alcohol?

User Avatar
No. Charcoal is effective at absorbing poisons from the stomach and upper gastrointestinal tract -- sometimes. However, ETG tests measure the metabolites of alcohol after they have been created and excreted by the liver. They are then eliminated from the body by the kidneys, in urine. Charcoal has no effect on this process. The only sure way to pass an ETG test is abstain from all liquids that contain alcohol, even mouthwash.
Asked in Alcoholism, Laboratory Testing, Drug Tests

Can ETG tests show positive from over the counter products like Nyquil?

User Avatar
Nyquil, for your information, is 50 proof. It contains more alcohol than wine. An EtG test will detect alcohol from any source, including after shave. If you're being tested, stay away from all substances containing alcohol for 24 hours, and do not ingest anything containing alcohol for at least three days prior to the test.

Does drinking alcohol cause dark spot on your body?

User Avatar
Yes, usually on the backs of the hands first. These are similar to "age spots, " but generally larger and they develop more rapidly and spread to the forearms. They may also appear on the face. These "Liver spots" are caused by a combination of reduced liver function and reduced circulation of blood to the surface of the skin. Thinning of the skin usually accompanies the spots, making the person more prone to bruising and superficial abrasions, which then take longer than normal to heal. Normally, the dark spots, for that matter, brown spots or yellow spots or whatever you call them, are caused by ultra violate rays of the sun. When the skin is exposed to sun for longer time, you get these spots. They are also called sun spots. These spots are also called age spots. They develop naturally with aging when their skin can't protect them from sunlight. But how these spots are related with liver dysfunctions is still to be established. I have seen so many alcoholics who don't have a dark or brown or yellow spots on their skin. But I have seen aged people having these spots on their skins. Any specialists can clear our doubts. Please do this. Thanks.

How does cocaine make you sober when you're drunk?

User Avatar
It doesn't. It just makes you feel more alert. Your faculties remain impaired, and you are even more likely to do something else stupid. The only thing that can sober you up is time.
Asked in Alcoholism

When does alcohol start to effect you?

User Avatar
Obviously it would depend on how much you drink. Depending on your age, weight, and tolerance. For the average person it takes about three or four shots of whiskey to get somewhat drunk. This would kick in about 15 to 25 minutes after you drink it. This is because of the ethanol alcohol in the drink. Your liver has to detoxify your blood and if you drink more than your liver can handle it doesn't purify enough of your blood.

Asked in Alcoholism

What percentage of alcoholics seek recovery?

User Avatar
Roughly 25%. That is not to say that they all succeed. The success rate is probably about one-quarter of that, at best. The success rate of most programs is very low. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) has a success rate of about 5% at the end of one year. The program with the highest independently-evaluated success rate is the non-profit St. Jude Program. It's long-term success rate has been documented and certified at 62%.

What is the best pop to drink?

User Avatar
It all depends on what you want. If you like sugary drinks get a mountain dew. If you like thicker drinks get a coke pepsi or dr. pepper. If you like flavorful drinks get a sunkist or fanta product. If you want a low cal. one then get a diet whatever sprite or 7-up, but if you have access get a mr. Newport, it pits sprite and 7-up to shame.

What causes someone to become an abuser?

User Avatar
Statistics show that intimate partner abuse, including domestic violence, has declined by one half in the last decade in the United States. Jay Silverman and Gail Williamson demonstrated in "Social Ecology and Entitlements Involved in Battering by Heterosexual College Males" (published in Violence and Victims, Volume 12, Number 2 (Spring 1997) that abuse is best predicted by two factors: the belief that mistreatment is justified and the succor of peers. These two facts elucidate the cultural and social roots of abusive behavior. Abuse is bound to be found in patriarchal, narcissistic, or misogynistic collectives. Many societies exhibit cross sections of these three traits. Thus, most patriarchal groups are also misogynistic, either overtly and ideologically so - or covertly and in denial. Paradoxically, women's lib initially makes things worse. The first period of social dislocation - when gender roles are redefined - often witnesses a male backlash in the form of last ditch patriarchy and last resort violence, trying to restore the "ancien regime". But as awareness and acceptance of women's equal rights grow, abuse is frowned upon and, consequently, declines. Alas, four fifths of humanity are far from this utopian state of things. Even in the most prosperous, well-educated, and egalitarian societies of the West there are sizable pockets of ill-treatment that cut across all demographic and social-economic categories. Women are physically weaker and, despite recent strides, economically deprived or restricted. This makes them ideal victims - dependent, helpless, devalued. Even in the most advanced societies, women are still expected to serve their husbands, maintain the family, surrender their autonomy, and abrogate their choices and preferences if incompatible with the ostensible breadwinner's. Women are also widely feared. The more primitive, poorer, or less educated the community - the more women are decried as evil temptresses, whores, witches, possessors of mysterious powers, defilers, contaminants, inferior, corporeal (as opposed to spiritual), subversive, disruptive, dangerous, cunning, or lying. Violence is considered by members of such collectives a legitimate means of communicating wishes, enforcing discipline, coercing into action, punishing, and gaining the approval of kin, kith, and peers. To the abuser, the family is an instrument of gratification - economic, narcissistic, and sexual. It is a mere extension of the offender's inner world, and, thus, devoid of autonomy and independent views, opinions, preferences, needs, choices, emotions, fears, and hopes. The abuser feels that he is entirely within his rights to impose his species of order in his own impregnable "castle". The other members of the household are objects. He reacts with violent rage to any proof or reminder to the contrary. Moreover, his view of the family is embedded in many legal systems, supported by norms and conventions, and reflected in social arrangements. But abusive behavior is frequently the outcome of objective societal and cultural factors. Abuse and violence are "intergenerationally transmitted". Children who grow up in dysfunctional and violent families - and believe that the aggression was justified - are vastly more likely to become abusive parents and spouses. Social stresses and anomy and their psychological manifestations foster intimate partner violence and child abuse. War or civil strife, unemployment, social isolation, single parenthood, prolonged or chronic sickness, unsustainably large family, poverty, persistent hunger, marital discord, a new baby, a dying parent, an invalid to be cared for, death of one's nearest and dearest, incarceration, infidelity, substance abuse - have all proven to be contributing factors. Answer I can only answer from experience. I found the reason that I am now self labled as an abuser is because of my past. I had no control as a child and as an adult I joined the military where I had even less control. Now being out of the military I am married with two kids and I want to control everything. That is not the way to go. This has been the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. Trying to heal and change almost everything you know is very difficult but it should not ever be the responsiblity of others. They did not make you who you are. Everyone has a choice of how they want to act. Answer In more simple words. The only way to be able to behave like an abuser is having not enough respect for another being. A lack of respect can be caused by many factors. Most often it is learned behaviour. Like children who are spoiled rotten. Spoiling a child is not learning a child to have respect for others. Answer "What causes someone to become an abuser?" I agree. Learned behaviour and reinforced environments supporting abuse. Best wishes... Answer Although, I agree with many of the statements made in the answer it is flawed due to not taking into account that both sexes batter, in both heterosexual and homosexual relations. I will freely admit that majority is male (batterer) and female (survivor).
Asked in Alcoholism, Medical Insurance

Will you be denied coverage for alcohol abuse?

User Avatar
I would call several companies at random, including the company you are applying at. I would pose as a potential future member and give no identifying information. If they ask for anything such as a phone number, a social security number or anything else than can identify you, simply say that you are not currently a member and want some basic, general information. This will give you your answer without jeopardizing your insurance coverage. If you lie on your application, however, and are caught, you will probably be canceled immediately and will find it difficult to get insurance. On the other hand, if you find that you won't get insurance at all without lying, you may feel it necessary because you won't have any insurance for anyone to cancel. From what I've seen in the company manuals, you're OK if you have 5 or more years in recovery. If less and you're in Calif. there's always the Major Risk Plan. If you belong to a group of 2 or more - no problem. I would never advocate lying on an application. (I'm an insurance agent). What is "alcohol abuse"? If you have sought treatment, or your doctor has suggested you seek treatment this information will be in your medical records. If your spouse has told you that you drink too much, but there's nothing from a medical professional in your records you're ok. If there's nothing in your records, but they find alcohol in your blood when they do the exam you've got a problem. I suggest you call different ones and ask preexisting conditions questions. If you have sought treatment and are sober there are different periods of sobriety they will have to give you a "standard" rate. If you are denied coverage, you can choose some offshore center where no insurances are ever accepted, and much effective treatment is given for the same price. Answer 2: Get the professional help you need beforehand. Alcohol abuse is an illness and one needs professional help to break free. Alcohol abuse can damage the brain, the heart, the liver and the stomach. Abuse of alvohol can harm us physically, morally, and spiritually and the Bible states that drunkards will not get everlasting life. 1 Corinthians 6:9,10.
