    I know, that's exactly what I thought. I was thinking why the guy was worried about nicotine, LOL!

    Thanks all for the polite replies. To be honest i stoped because i was and still am debating going to the police acadamy.Still might after all this. Im already a certifide emt. I take people safty extreemly seriously. Who knows I might love driving the trucks. I drive alot for the moving company i work for. And for the certain individuals who think im some crazy looser pot head give me a break. I just perferd smoking over drinking when i go out not a big fan of hangovers which i seem to get really easy. I just turnd 23 still trying to see what im doing with my life. I know the police iv talked to dont even car that iv used to smoke acadmy wise as long as i dont do it for a couple years (the time it takes to get my college education) If i go that route.

    What part of iv stopped smoking 4 months ago before ieven had a remote thought of even getting into this business. Its not like I still doing it or that I even smoked a lot. Heck i work 60 hrs a week helping run a moving company and have a 3.5 gpa average. Im not some dumb pot head. Give me a ####### break im just covering all my basis. Its not like im doing coke, heroin, crack, mushrooms, or oxy. I tried smoking a couple times. Don’t be so judge mental worry about your own #### problems. How dare i try to improve my life and get a career going. I just wanted to know if i should wait a while for the whole dt thing.

    Hey now didn't say that. I used to drink pretty heavy back when I wasn't of age so I wasn't an angel I'm just saying those are my thought's on the matter. I understand people slip up. But we're talking about just 4 months ago. I went to high school with a few people that smoked weed and appearntly it's like smoking cigarettes addicting and well harder than hell to quit. Only takes one relapse to get him in a whole mess of trouble. Hints why I told him to shave his head. I don't know bout him, you and everybody else. But if I had to shave my head to pass a drug test, and then look at my self completely bald for the next 2 months I wouldn't ever touch that stuff again. Hell I'm 21 I wanna keep my hair as long as possible don't wanna be blinding little kids when I get out of the truck on a sunny day without a hat on for at least another 20 years no offense to anybody.

    Might be a good idea to wait a while, til you are sure about what you want to do. Trucking is a very demanding and time consuming career. You will be expected to spend more time away from friends and family than you probably have ever experienced, unless you have spent time in the military. Might be a really good idea to finish your education and pick a field that you're sure you want. Maybe after you finish school, and have your degree, you could spend a stint in the military and that would give you some time to really sort things out. OR.... Since you are already a certified EMT, why not try and build on that. Nurses especially male nurses are badly needed now days...and with a 3.5 gpa plus an EMT certification , nursing school would be a breeze...lots more money in that profession too, especially starting out, and lots of room to expand on your education and then your career..... Good luck.....

    your right tony being a emt is a awesome career. I havethe highest respect for them. I just kind got thrown off it when i went to acall when i was in training and a young lady rode here motorcycle into the backof a semi. It was a messy painful passing and maybe it makes me a week personbut after that i decided that career wasnt the best for me. I was just statedthat emt thing to say dont judge me if you dont know me kind of thing. I know ilike to drive trucks I drive out of state alot with my moving company. I figuredthat this way i wont have to load a house in it which is very demanding on thebody after 6 years of it. Iv already talked it over with the fam and am wantingto get my class A and put in a year or two for experience and take thattraining and find a nice local job. There seems to be a lot of them aroundhere. And at my work there are a handfulof people who used to have there class A but lost it because of dui when theywere in their own private cars. And I see how much they are bumming about losingthere license and they all recommend that I do it.

    If you are truly concerned my friend just wait it out. DOT only requires a urine test but a lot of companies are doing hair follicle tests, some random some manditory. Why risk it? If you pop dirty on a drug test that's going on your record so you can kiss the police academy away and a good driving job as well. Wait until its been six months since you've smoked. Hair follicle tests can go back up to 12 months, but the company has to inform you if they are going back further than 3 months. Hope this helps
