I haven't had a booze drink for a month now :halo: and wondered how long alcohol takes to completely leave your system, including the organs it affects - liver and others?Cheers, or not as the case may be.
1 unit per hour
Traces of alcohol can still be found in the body for up to 6 months or more.
I thought traces of alcohol could occur naturally, which is why the zero drink drive limit people bleat on about is crap.
It's something like 1 unit per hour isn't it? Though your blood does contain a small background level of alcohol naturally.Maybe the question is, if the liver has an impaired function through excess drinking how long does that take to recover?TBH unless you're a serious and regular pisshead I reckon it's psychological more than anything.
Liver function all fine and dandy. But as someone who's used booze on a regular basis thought it would be a good idea to just give the liver/body a complete break, while doing other things like exercising more, drinking more water and taking that supplement that's supposed to be ace for your liver, Milk Thistle.It's surprising how quickly you get used to going into the pub and having something else instead.

I wish I was a serious and regular pisshead sometimes. I had a hangover this am after 3 pints of session bitter in 2 hours last night, I would have been barely over the driving limitDidn't even get to earn my headache
I haven't had a drink for six days now, which is something of a record for me. Do you really get used to going to the pub and drinking something else? Don't you get bored as everybody else gets pissed?
