Question: Can alcohol be detected after 24 hours in your system?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

Alcohol can be detected after 24 hours but only under certain situations. The only time alcohol is detected is if a blood test is taken otherwise what is detected are specific metabolites of alcohol. These can be detected for about five and upto seven days after drinking.

It goes on consumption. It takes an hour and a half / beer to leave your system six beers will take 9 hours if it takes you 2 hours to drink them by the time your done 1 has left your system the same for liqour it takes an hour and a half per shot(1 1/2oz) i had a breathdalyzer in my car for a year and thats what i went by and it worked out i never blew with alcohol in me


I work in an alcohol rehab clinic where we carry out random tests on our clients on a daily basis, so you can take this answer to the bank.

It depends on the strength and the volume of the alcohol as well as a persons age, sex and metabolic rate, on average it takes a person's liver one hour to metabolise one unit of alcohol.

?One unit of alcohol is about equal to:
?half a pint of ordinary strength beer, lager or cider (3-4% alcohol by volume), or
?a small pub measure (25 ml) of spirits (40% alcohol by volume), or
?a standard pub measure (50 ml) of fortified wine such as sherry or port (20% alcohol by volume)

My link gives the recommended safety limits, don't get me wrong I'm not preaching on how much you drink, that's your business, it's just a good link to answer your question.…

I have read that it can take between 78 - 82 hours to be completely eliminated.

I think so. Try to drink as much water as you can.

It can and will.
