You could also ask the question “How many drinks until a person is drunk?”, it doesn’t just involve beer. Of course reaching the legal limit of .08 is going to be different for everyone since this is based on a variety of factors including weight, body fat percentages, gender, how much food is in your system, etc. Of course if you are asking this question because you are wondering how many drinks can you have and still drive, don’t be an idiot. If you plan on drinking, get a designated driver, get a cab, plan on spending the night or whatever. Do not get on the road and put other innocent people in danger. Too many innocent people die as a result of idiot drunk drivers and do you really want to be to blame for killing an innocent mother and her child and spend years in prison for your actions? Of course not. Don’t drink and drive in Alabama.
