How long does it take alcohol to leave your system

Alcohol stays in your system for an average of 1 hour per standard drink, but this could be affected by a number of biological and life-style factors. Blood tests can detect alcohol for up to 6 hours after the last drink. Breathalyser and urine tests can detect alcohol for 12-24 hours. Hair tests for alcohol can return positive for up to 90 days after consumption.
