    you consume them..and how you metabolize Etoh (example many people of Asian decent have low amt of enzyme that metabolized Etoh)

    two drinks put  me at o.8 ish...but I'm a woman. I wouldn't drive right after drinking 2...I'd wait a bit myself. I feel buzzed nicely for a while after 2 drinks.

    •  Everybody has about the same volume (0+ / 0-)

      of blood, so if you're talking about BAC it doesn't really matter that much what your overall mass is . . .

        •  The amount varies from about (0+ / 0-)

          5 to 6 liters in any healthy adult - so, you're probably not exactly the same, but quite similar

          And alcohol more rapidly gets into blood than the whole pool of water (which DOES depend on a person's whole mass) . . .  so, over a short period of time there is less of a difference in intoxication depending on body size than over longer period of time.
