The greater the mass of the body, the more time will be taken out alcohol. In addition, in women, the weathering of alcohol occurs 20% longer than for men. You can also say that, for example, vodka, which at times increases alcohol in the blood, the elimination time will be much higher (from 4 to 38 hours) than, say, beer (from 2 to 30 hours).
