Once alcohol enters into your body to the stomach, it is absorbed into the blood stream after it was passed to small intestines. From your blood the alcohol chemicals are filter out by your kidneys and secreted as urine. Then the excess is passed back out though your lungs and expelled via your breath. The blood test will give the most accurate blood alcohol content test result.
