In response to a confession. I OMG'ed because of all the steps you have to do to pass it. Sounds like a lot of tedious things that may or may not work anyway.

I'm posting about the drug testing. I'm curious if the "omg's" are because I'm talking about fudging a urinalysis, the fact that I'm buying tests from Dollar Tree, or the simple fact that I like to smoke pot. So, "me too" if it's about tricking the test, "omg" if it's the Dollar Tree tests, "fave" if it's the sheer fact that I smoke pot, and "hug" if you take a controlled substance (prescription or otherwise.....mood stabilizers, painkillers, stimulants, sleep aids, etc... since most of these drugs share the same chemical compounds as illicit street drugs.)

In response to a confession. You're right, Stormy. It is stored on fat cells. I wanted to touch on that more when I mentioned not exercising right before since it tends to churn it up, but couldn't fit it in with the character limit. I don't have much body fat, so I'm passing now after 3.5 weeks of abstinence without any special measures. It takes longer if you have more body fat. By no means am I suggesting that anyone keep on smoking if they have a test coming. I'm just trying to help anyone who may be popped with a random test, because even if you're smoking where recreational use is legal, a lot of workplaces still don't condone it. I don't suggest taking any special "cleansers" or super-vitamins because they sometimes they look for that stuff. I'm talking run of the mill multivitamins. (I was actually taking Flinstone vitamins, lol.) and water and/or ONE energy drink. It's really just about diluting without it looking too diluted. Dollar Tree tests are cheap and can help offer peace of mind,

So, I may be subject to a drug urinalysis any day now. I've been abstaining from weed for close to a month now, since I've known about this. I was a daily smoker. I've been buying tests from Dollar Tree to monitor my progress. Apparently they aren't any different that the commonly used tests in labs. Up until yesterday, I would fail them unless I took special measures to trick the test. Here are these measures: Be sure to pee at least 3 or 4 times before even thinking about testing. Don't do vigorous exercise the day of. Drink at LEAST 3 pints of water and pee, pee, pee. Take 3 or more vitamins or drink an energy drink to give your urine some color. Don't combine the energy drink w/ multiple vitamins or your urine will look a suspicious chartreuse, The trick is to dilute w/o it coming out clear. Be sure to pee a little first & then finish into the cup. Of course, you should abstain if you know a test is coming up, but it can take a month or more to clear if you're a frequent smoker.

I've read so many conflicting studies about coconut oil. I don't know what to believe. I did read that it can increase thyroid function and promote weight loss. I've also read that it's not good for you at all and the other studies are all hype. I was adamant about incorporating it into my diet (organic, cold pressed) but have backed off. I will say that my doctor was concerned that my thyroid levels were too high and I had lost some weight during that time. I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar or different kind of experience with this.

When I was a kid, I got a small cold sore after sharing a glass with my mom who had one. It healed up and I never, ever got another one. My dad doesn't get them either, even though he's been exposed. It's like we have an almost natural immune response to the herpes virus that keeps us from breaking out. I am praying it lasts until I'm old and stops me from getting shingles.

I had cold sores almost all my life - tried all the different and and all the new treatments. What really works like a charm is garlic. You take a garlic clove, cut it open and use the juice (just lightly rub the juicy side) on the cold sore. It will burn a bit for a few minutes and yes, it will also smell - but my outbreaks are now over within 24 hrs. If I can feel the cold sore coming and use garlic, it does not even break out.

In response to a confession. We use Scott's (blue/white wrapper) because we've had enough plumbing issues where the plumber actually recommended using the thinner stuff. He said Charmin is the worst for clogging toilets.
