Bryan, I'm sure you know this, but I just wanted to clarify for anyone else out there reading: weight does not affect how quickly you metabolize alcohol, nor do any other factors besides medication that gives your liver extra work. If you eat before or while you drink, the booze will take longer to make its way through your digestive system, which will slow the rate at which it hits your bloodstream. But you will still metabolize it at the same rate. If you are very tall and/or muscular (fat doesn't seem to have this effect) you may have slightly more blood in which the alcohol can spread out. But you will still metabolize it at the same rate. If you are on any of various medications that indicate possible interaction with alcohol, you should probably avoid drinking any alcohol on the nights you drive, or vice versa, until you're sure you know how it affects you.

"Don't get me wrong, it's not a very slippery slope. It's a slope with only a very minor grade, probably flat to the naked eye and which one would need some high quality surveyor's equipment to determine drainage and there's plenty of ways to reroute the flow to greener pastures and such, but a slope toward a bad place nonetheless." -Joe Bentley
