    I thought the title was asking whether you'd be OK to drive by the AGE of 12 and I was like "Whaaaaat?!" :lolwut:

    drink water before you sleep and when you wake up, get some fresh air and something to eat in the morning and have lot's of chats with your friends to get it around your system and sounds like you might be ok.

    If you don't feel like you should drive at 12 then you need to be sensible and do something about it.

    I too thought the title was misleading!

    You should be fine, but your liver might be a bit unhappy

    Hi, ScienceWhoMusic! I'm of the opinion that every human body works differently. It all depends on your weigh, your height, if you are used to drink alcohol or not and etc. But for the majority of people, usually, the time you have so that alcohol can lose its effect (not to detoxify your body, but to get you sober again) is between 8 and 12 hours after you drink and it is even more effective if you spend those hours sleeping. But, again, as far as I’m concerned, if you know your body can’t handle this so maybe you shouldn’t drink too much if you know you are the one driving.
