Handheld Breathalyzer

If you ever go out to drink, whether to have dinner, socialize with friends or to meet with colleagues, a handheld breathalyzer from AlcoTester.com is a invaluable tool for you to own. You can quickly and easily tell whether your BAC (blood alcohol content) is over the legal limit and make your judgments based on that rather of drunk reasoning. Alcohol affects the body of everybody differently, so be sure to use your breathalyzer from AlcoTester.com before you drive after even a single drink.

When you see someone who has been drinking, you usually have to rely on your senses to determine whether they are intoxicated. Slurred speech, uncoordinated movements, and alcohol-laced breath are often the surest hallmarks of intoxication, but these clues require context--and can easily be masked. Thankfully, nothing can fool a breathalyzer.

A rule of thumb is that the body can process one beer, one glass of wine, or one shot of hard alcohol in about an hour. If you wait one hour for every drink you have, you should read a .000 BAC. However, there are many factors that all of this depends on. How strong your drinks are, how well hydrated you are, how much you weigh, how much you had to eat and how long ago I could go on and on but the bottom line is that there are many factors.

Many medications should not be mixed with alcohol. Painkillers, antidepressants, and other common pills react with alcohol and can make you feel even more intoxicated. However, not all of these effects can be measured with your BAC, so be sure to read your labels carefully and exercise caution when drinking on medication.

Testing yourself with a breathalyzer from AlcoTester.com is the key to making good decisions when you're out drinking. A breathalyzer is the only tool other than a blodd test to help you judge just how intoxicated you may be, but never be afraid to err on the side of caution.
