Hello,

Yes drinking lots of water helps to clear alcohol faster.

About ten percent leaves through the breath, perspiration, and urine. The remainder is broken down through the metabolism. Alcohol is metabolized at the rate of .015 of blood alcohol concentration every hour. Thus a person with a very high BAC of .15 will have no measurable alcohol in the bloodstream after ten hours.

Wish you a healthy life.

How long will it take to be able to pass a urinalysis
Ken, Postgraduate doctor replied 7 years ago.
Hello,

It depends upon how much alcohol you consumed.

The disposal rate in a 150-pound human is approx about 0.5 ounce of ethanol per hour, which corresponds to 12 ounces of beer (1 can), 4 ounces of wine (1 glass), or once ounce of hard liquor (one shot).

God bless.

It may be detected for 2 to 6 days and depends on how much alcohol is consumed.
