How long will this stay in my system?

An important step after calculating the amount of alcohol you have consumed is to determine the length of time it will take to exit your system. This is especially important if you plan to drive a vehicle and avoid being over the legal limit, which is a 0.08% BAC level in the United States. To help calculate this, we provide a BAC Calculator to work it out for you.
