How can I get the alcohol out of my system before 24 hours so my blood test can say that there is no alcohol in my system?
Do not drink:
Blood alcohol levels will not be abnormal at 24 hours after a drink. However there are other tests that can detect alcohol intake up to 80 hours earlier. It would depend on what test is being done. Some tests are positive for two weeks after the drink in a chronic drinker. See this site for info.

Depends on the test: Blood testing is actually not the best way to look for drugs, because most are short-acting and the amount of drug in blood is very tiny. Urine is the best body fluid, and saliva is increasingly being used as well. Hair and nail testing will detect some drugs for months. Newer alcohol tests (EtG, EtS, PeTH) can detect alcohol use for several days, if they are using those tests. ...Read more
