How much alcohol is in a fifth?

A fifth of alcohol is 1/5 or 20% of an American gallon.

How much alcohol do you need to drink to have alcohol poisoning?

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
