How long does alcohol stay in my system?

If you’ve been drinking, you may be wondering, how long does alcohol stay in my system? How long until I am able to drive? The length of time that alcohol stays in your system depends on height, weight, metabolism, background, and those type of things. As a general rule, kind of a rule of thumb is half a drink for a woman per hour, two-thirds of a drink for a man. However, it varies from person to person, so it is important to just be extra careful.

If you’ve been arrested for a DUI and you think that the blood alcohol is going to come back below the legal limit and you are watching this video and you realize now that “maybe my drink an hour evaluation probably isn’t going to hold up.” I would recommend getting a lawyer involved early in the process so you can evaluate where you might be on your blood alcohol level before you get the test and before you’ve got to make a hard decision.
