It tells us that there is 0.2 grams of alcohol for about every 3.3 fluid ounces (deciliter) of blood charging around inside your bloodstream. Compare this to 0.08 grams —which is considered to be the legal BAC maximum to legally drive unimpaired —and it is clear where it all can go really wrong. A BAC of 0.08

This reference adds more detail: Alcohol poisoning. The lethal dose of alcohol is 5 to 8g/kg (3g/kg for children)6 – that is, for a 60kg person, 300g of alcohol can kill, which is equal to 30 standard drinks (about 1 litre of spirits or four bottles of wine). Developed tolerance to alcohol is a funny thing.

That evens out to 1 big glass of beer 5% alcohol (12fl), or 1 glass of table wine 12% alcohol (5fl), or 1 shot of tequila 40% alcohol (1.5 fl). No more than two drinks daily and no more than 14 drinks weekly is considered moderate for men. No more than one drink daily and no more than seven drinks weekly is considered moderate for women.

According to the US Dietary Guidelines, 2015-2020, people should limit their alcohol-related risks by drinking in moderation, meaning up to 1 serving of alcohol per day for women and up to 2 servings per day for men. 4 Daily drinking may indeed be harmful for you, especially if you suffer from certain health conditions, mental health issues, or have a family history of substance use disorders.

In general, for an average adult male, a lethal dose of alcohol is between 5 and 8 grams of alcohol per kilogram of body weight. If that adult is 60 kg, or 132 pounds, death is more likely to occur after a liter of spirits or four bottles of wine. This is just the known lethal dose, though.

Hence, the ‘ safe limit’ for alcohol consumption is said to be 21 units per week (1 unit is approximately 25 ml of whiskey) in men, and 14 units in women. No more than three units in one day, and to have at least two alcohol -free days a week. How Much Alcohol Will Kill You?

How much alcohol you have in your blood at any given time in the evening does not only depend on how many alcoholic beverages you have drunk so far. It also depends on whether you’ve eaten something before. Your age, weight, and size also play an important role. Effect 0.1 per mille alcohol. Even small amounts of alcohol have a disinhibiting effect.

That depends on your overall health. According to one article 5, severe alcoholic liver disease is often linked to drinking 20-40 grams of ethanol a day for women, or 40 to 80 grams for men, over 10 to 12 years. A bottle of wine generally has enough ethanol in it to meet, or exceed this level.

The participants drank between 0 and 350 grams of alcohol each week (to put this figure in perspective, the recommendation for men in the U.S. is equivalent to 196 grams—about six glasses of wine). The study found that drinking 100 grams or less of alcohol per week had the lowest risk for mortality.
