Passing an alcohol: Test is the very least of your problems. Alcohol is metabolized in the liver, and sweating and urinating remove only a very tiny amount. We metabolize about 1 drink per hour, so a fifth would take a day or more to completely be metabolized, more or less. However, your drinking is clearly beyond social and you are almost certainly alcoholic. You need help before you do permanent damage to body/mind. ...Read more

On average, how long will alcohol stay in your system?

On average, how long will alcohol stay in your system?

Rule of thumb: This is a surprisingly complicated question, as it turns out, in terms of physiology. To make a long story short, the rule of thumb is that it takes about one hour for the average person to clear one "standard drink" (about 1/2 an ounce of ethanol). This equates to 12 ounces of beer (3.2%), 5 ounces of wine and 1.5 ounces of whiskey. ...Read more

How long does it take for an amount alcohol to leave your system?

How long does it take for an amount alcohol to leave your system?

1 drink per hour: Alcohol metabolism/breakdown occurs at a fixed rate regardless of how much you drink. The rate is 1 drink per hour. If you drink 10 drinks in an hour, 1 drink will leave your system after 1 hour. Excessive drinking for this reason can lead to alcohol poisoning and death. Please drink in moderation. If you take medications it is better to not drink at all. If you cannot stop, get help. Good luck! ...Read more
