[Antabuse/Disulfiram] Can I drink after 120 hours since last pill?

I took my first 250mg Antabuse pill on July 22, 2016. Then I took it daily (250mg everyday) until August 3, 2016 (13 days). Can I drink alcohol today (August 8, 5 days off the pill) w/o having the adverse effects?
I read it can stay up to 2 weeks in the body, what are the chances of this considering the time I took it and how many days I've been w/o it? I'm a short male 164cm with average weight 67kg, practices sports every week and drinks lots of water.
Frugos; I pretty much agree with Delia answer; But don't go hang a big one on but I see no reason that you can't have a drink or two, Just be very careful that it does not get out of hand. Not only because of you were on Antabuse but for your general health you don't need to backslide but no reason you can't enjoy the rest of summer but be careful.

Hi, by now you should be able to have an alcoholic drink quite safely. The general advice is not to drink for 14 days after your last dose. If you do start to experience any side effects please seek medical advice immediately
