You certainly can, since the body processes roughly one unit of alcohol per hour. So, unless you've consumed more than sixty units (quite an achievement) then your body should be totally free of alcohol after 60 hours.

The body will naturally work to rid itself of alcohol, and the organ which is most active in this process is the liver.

There are certain factors which determine how much alcohol your body breaks down in an hour. These are:

  • Your body weight.
  • Whether you're a man or a woman.
  • Your age.
  • Your metabolic rate.
  • The amount you have eaten.
  • The type of alcohol you have consumed.
  • Some medications may also decrease the breakdown of alcohol in the body.
Passing an alcohol test
If you're still worried that you may not pass that alcohol test, then a spot of exercise is a great way of speeding up the absorption of alcohol in the body.

  • Exercise increases the productivity levels of the enzymes that work to absorb alcohol in the liver.
  • It also increases the flow of alcohol across the lung enzymes, which means more alcohol is breathed out of the body through the respiratory system.
  • Light exercise such as a short run is especially beneficial.

I hope this has been useful!
