I think it would vary on the individual and the amount of alcohol consumed versus food intake as well. Alot of factors are important. Is the person a social drinker, or drinks everyday? How much alcohol was consumed within a certain amount of time? For instance, chugging down a fifth of whiskey as fast as possible would give you a helluva good start to poisoning. What was the alcohol percent of the drink? One beer is just 5% alcohol by volume. Whiskeys and burbons and vodka are anywhere from 80-90 proof which is 40-45% alcohol by volume. Then you hit your Bacardi 151, your wild turkey 101 and the percentage runs up to 50% alcohol and higher. Everclear or grain alcohol a whopping 180-190 proof which equals 90-95% pure alchohol....Good ol white lightning which is made not to far down the road is just as pure as it gets...MMMM BOY!

On a side note, I was arrested a few years back for a DUI and my b.a.c. (blood acohol content) was .42%. Judge threw the book at me claiming in all her years she had never even heard of a bac that high. One year in jail with six months suspended...:(

Hear people tell me, I was on the verge of poisoning, even death. Any additions to this question and my answer would be interesting

Does drinking water help pass a urine test for alcohol?

It does but you need to drink ALLOT of water and not to much alcohol especially considering the low level of alcohol urine tests are looking for... I'm not sure how much water, how little alcohol or how much time it will take as all these factors depend on each other, and your weight and tolerance to alcohol... If you need to do a urine sample for alcohol and your not sure if the alcohol is still in your urine, the best thing (of coarse) is to not drink alcohol until after your test...
