Full Answer

The amount of time alcohol stays in the blood stream is dependent on many factors. The main factor is how many units are consumed. A glass of wine has about 3 units while a beer has about 2. It takes an hour for the alcohol in a unit to break down. Any medications being taken can cause the alcohol to break down more slowly. Also, the alcohol usually lasts longer in a smaller person's body.
