I didn't really think this qualifies to be in the drug thread, since alcohol isnt necessarily a drug.

But how long does it take for it to actually be flushed out of your system, because my brother wants me to come up to his apartment sometime and drink with him and his friends, but i gotta pass random drug tests at school that i always seem to get chosen for every week. He told me it only takes like a day, especially if you drink a lot of water.

2: You can fail it because of alcohol???
3: Just drink lots of water, alcohol doesn't take a long time to get out of you.

i hour = 1 unit

But don't expect this to work to the dot, it's an average rule, most likely. It depends on percent by volume.

It'll take a couple of days tops, and even if your school did catch you then I'd be surprised if they took any major action. By the way, what the hell kind of school do you go to? Random drug testing? If they tried that here half our school would be expelled, including the teachers.

Also, alcohol is a drug and this does belong in the drug thread.

It takes your body one hour to process and eliminate the alcohol from one drink. So an hour for each beer or shot you take. Example 2 beers and three shots would take 5 hours to be completely sober (typically, varies a little from person to person).

If you have more muscle mass your body will process it quicker than someone fat and pudgy.

Alcohol (as ethanol) gets degraded much quicker than an hour. It's not even ethanol that's toxic, it's ethanal, one of the intermediates. Body water has more to do with processing than muslce mass. Status of your liver, amount of zinc in the diet, rate of NADH buildup... they all play a part too.

But I wouldn't worry if you don't drink much. Blood tests look for Blood Alcohol Level, which I don't think acetylaldehyde (ethanal) will be picked up by, as it isn't an -ol. By the morning, most, if not all the ethanol in your system should have been converted to acetylaldehyde, which is what causes hangovers and the such, not ethanol.

not to go to school, but to be able to drive to school and be involved in like sports and stuff... if i fail the drug test i will have to ride the bus which sucks since all the little middle schoolers ride the same bus as us.
