At .08 Blood Alcohol Level,
you're legally drunk when driving
.01 when haulin' big rigs.
At .04, which is the "good feeling" state,
one's own motor skills show impairment.
REGARDING RED NUMBERS IN CHART
ONE IS NEAR A LIFE THREATENING STATE
AT THIS LEVEL. HOPEFULLY, BEFORE THEN
MOTHER NATURE WILL PREVAIL AND ONE
IS RENDERED UNCONSCIOUS & VOMITING
TO PRESERVE THEIR LIFE. BUT THIS
DOESN'T ALWAYS HAPPEN
So Memorize These Points
Quickly consuming a lot
of alcohol tricks a person into believing
that s/he is in control...
when in fact s/he is in a crisis about to happen.
When people pass-out, they continue
to absorb any excess alcohol,
which means that blood alcohol can
reach lethal levels while sleeping.
The drinking party is definitely over for this person,
BUT THE DRINKING CRISIS IS NOT.
Alcohol is absorbed quickly;
but, is detoxified very slowly.
Excess alcohol is stored in the blood
and tissue waiting for
detox by the liver which rate
= about .5 oz of alcohol / hr.
If a person becomes unconscious,
is impossible to arouse,
or has trouble breathing,
get medical attention PRONTO.
Saving a person's
life is worth their little embarrassment.
NEVER LEAVE A PASSED-OUT PERSON ALONE
until s/he is out of crisis.
THEY COULD DIE.
