  • How long does alcohol stay in your system?

    How long does it take for alcohol to get out of your system? I have listen that the liver takes one hour to metabolize one ounce of alcohol.Is the information is true?
    Can any advanced urine tests can detect a substance produced by the metabolization of alcohol for up to 80 hours after the last drink.
    I have already read few blogs on this subject though I need an expert answer-

  • The more you drink and the longer you drink will affect the metabolism rate. If the drinking goes on for years it can take a long time before the "EFFECTS" of alcohol leave your body. Advanced tests probably can detect trace amounts of substances created in the liver by alcohol.
    That which we forget may as well never really happened.


    • As Claret has said. The more you drink, the longer the alcohol stays in your system, so if you're driving the next day be aware of how much you're drinking.
