A person’s bac will go down if they:

a. drink coffee
b. take a cold shower
c. vomit
d. none of the above

Answer: d. None of the above.


For those who are wondering whether vomiting, drinking coffee, or taking a cold shower reduces the amount, they are sadly mistaken. If a person consumes coffee, takes a chilly shower, or vomits, their BAC will not be reduced.

There is only one way it can go down, and that’s through your body’s natural process. If you think these things will reduce your blood alcohol concentration, you’re mistaken. The one method it will go down is by the liver of a person. Your liver will gradually lower the amount of BAC in your system and the length of time it takes depends on the percentage of BAC in your blood.

Coffee, on the other hand, will keep you up but not reduce your alcohol concentration. A cold shower has no effect, and while vomiting does not lower your BAC concentration, it will prevent it from increasing. Vomiting in some ways helps to decrease your BAC level; however, no one would advocate this.

So, there you have it. The only thing that can decrease your BAC level is your liver, and nothing else.
