Which of the following does NOT affect your blood alcohol concentration (BAC)?


Your body weight, the length of time that you have been drinking alcohol, and the amount of alcohol that you have consumed all affect your blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The kinds of alcoholic beverages you drink do not matter. An average 180-pound man will become legally intoxicated from the alcohol in three standard drinks before his liver starts to break it down. One standard drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of hard liquor.
