Abundance of factors contributes to how long alcohol stays in your system

How long alcohol stays in your system is dependent upon age, weight, whether you’ve eaten food recently, medications, liver disease

Alcohol will have heightened effects on those with lower weights and smaller body sizes

If you’re drinking on an empty stomach, then the effects of alcohol may be enhanced

Different medications can have dangerous side effects when paired with alcohol. Any present liver conditions can harm your ability to handle alcohol and process it

A shot of liquor is estimated to metabolize in an hour, a pint of beer in two, a glass of wine in three, and several drinks could take multiple hours

The presence of alcohol can be detected through a urine test, breath test and even in your hair

Alcohol can even be detected at the roots of your hair for 90 days after someone has stopped drinking
