How long should it take to get the drugs out of your system? Drugs such as zanax, coke, meth, marijuana, roxi pills also known as blues, mushrooms (shrooms), ecstacy, speed, acids, and other narcotic substances are always better if avoided. Remember that magic mushrooms don’t stay in your system too long; All psilocybin and psilocin is absent from the body with in 24 hours of ingestion. But there are times when you either had to take them for your own good or took them by mistake. Now you regret it and want to get it out of your body system, whether it for for drug test examination or just to stay totally clean and sober. So how long drugs stay in your system?

So how long do drugs stay in your system?

Most drugs are capable of staying in your body system for as long as a month or even more sometimes. It will depend heavily on how much you took them and what else you did besides using the drugs. This is because the drugs get stored in fat cells which takes time to go through our digestive system. You can do different things to flush drugs out of your system by drinking plenty of fluids, exercising, eating and staying away from them.

There are three common kinds of drug detection test in use now a days: hair, urine and blood test. A lot of people find it surprising that drug examiners can test your hair to know if you used and ingested drugs within the last 90 days from many drug substances. Here is the detail list of how long different kinds of drugs stay in your system for. Alcohol for stays for about two days at the most. Meth can stay in your system for the maximum of 3 days. Cocaine can be found in your system using urine test with the 5 days of use. LSD and Heroin can also be detected through urine and blood test within a time period of 3 to 4 days depending on how often you used. Again, remember these are just some general time period that we know for our body to process them drugs; so how long drugs really stay in our system will depend on the factors we listed above.

Opiates commonly referred to as opium, china, dreams, dover’s powder and opes have a detection period ranging from a day to a week depending on how much you used and your metabolism. Interestingly enough, hair drug test can detect your opium use dating as far back as 3 months.

    I didn’t touch any drugs from being 15 to 32, infact I divorced my husband cos he wouldn’t stop smoking weed! Then I met n fell in love with an ex heroin addict, still using 120mg daily of methadone, I was blinkered n really thought the heroin was in the past, WRONG!! After a year of being with this man, who is perfect in every other way, I ended up using heroin, injecting it, at least £20 a day for the last 22 months! Ivebeen clean for only 9 days without using anything to cum off it n it’s been the hardest 9 days of my life! Moral to the story is do not get involved with people who r still using a heavy dose of methadone as they will b likely to relapse and like my partner admitted, it was easier for him to use if I was using too, be careful n don’t risk everything for a bit of brown shit!

    If you do meth you will piss dirty for 4 days no matter the amount you did. If you did coke you will piss dirty for 3 to 7 days no matter the amount. If you were clean then smoked a bowl of weed you will piss dirty for 3-7 days. If you do mushrooms you will piss clean in 24 hours after the effects wear off. Bottom line… If you are on probation don’t smoke weed. If you have a meeting in the next 7 days don’t do meth or coke. If its the beginning of the weekend just eat some mushrooms.

  9. speed does it still show up after you stopped using 2yr ago? Says:

    my sister swears she has not done speed for the last 2 years,however the hair test done states something different. As a matter of fact they could’t even come up with a number because it is off the scale. So is she or isn’t she still using? this is serious so no jokes please!
