What parents need to know now about the new Social Host Laws
Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is a measure of how much alcohol is in your blood stream, not how much you have had to drink. Every body metabolizes alcohol at the same rate but absorbs it at a slightly different rate, based on your weight, gender and what you’ve eaten just before and while drinking. If you want to ensure a low Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) low, keep your absorption rate low. Remember to drink slowly, alternate with lots of water and eat something, which helps slow absorption. This chart assumes you are consuming the equivalent of the number of drinks on the left within an hour! For every hour you have been drinking, you can subtract 0.015 from the BAC.
