I would say to be sure, 48 hours - do you have a test or somewthing? I think what the idea of it being out of your system isn't as important as why you did it. If you want to stay sober you have to honest about why you did it. I was sober for yers and ended up drinking a couple shots of Listerine mouthwash. I was like you and caught myself and went right to a meeting and was fine for a long time but I knew I had done it and I didn't want to keep that a secret that is why I went to a meeting - to tell on myself - and it ruined 12 yrs of straight sobriety but the secrets are what make us drink - I know it's crazy but I have been in this for 32 years and those old timers were right - they do all the experimenting for us so we don't have to go drink but then we just can't believe it and have to try for ourselves. It CANNOT be done and if anyone has done it they are not really an alcoholic. It is absolutely impossible to quit drinking and start again.
It is worse and more traumatic than you can believe because the progression in your body is still going and when you drink - even after a few months - the progression kicks your ass and you can't deal because you aren't use to it - plus the guilt will kill you if the drink doesn't. Once you quit you better stay stopped and I would like to meet anyone who says any different ... so good luck and stay off the whiskey. Was it really worth the worry when you think back on it!!!
