Which of the following will help an intoxicated person sober up?

A None of the above

Your liver breaks down alcohol at a predictable rate. Typically, this is one standard drink per hour, where one standard drink equals 1.5 ounces of hard liquor, 5 ounces of wine, or 12 ounces of beer. Neither coffee nor exercise nor a cold shower can increase that rate. You need to wait until the alcohol has been broken down. [How Does Alcohol Affect Your Body?; B-7.
