Knowing what your blood level is can be tricky, with variables such as drink size, percentage and even personal mood.
The chance to obtain a better understanding of the facts on standard drinks, breath alcohol concentrations and responsible drinking will be available at the Mount Isa Buffs Club from 5pm on Friday August 30.
Part of Queensland Road Safety Week the Drink Rite event involves a standard drinks presentation and at least six participants who consume alcohol and have the opportunity to be breath tested by a police officer.
Constable Jack Casey of the Mount Isa Road Policing Unit said Drink Rite helped people learn about the alcohol content of different drinks, what constitutes a standard drink and the effect these have on drinkers.
"People have been keen to find out how many standard drinks they are actually pouring when they make themselves a drink and are generally surprised at the difference in readings, for drinkers who are consuming alcohol of varying strengths," Constable Casey said.
Constable Casey said there were a lot of factors which could determine someone's alcohol concentration.
"Many factors determine the effect alcohol will have on a person at any given time, but the Drink Rite program shows participants how quickly standard drinks can increase their alcohol concentrations," he said.
Mr Casey said the night was a great way to learn and reinforced the that the onus is always on yourself.
"We look forward to a big turn out on the night and hope that everyone will take the opportunity to find out, in a fun way, how much they can responsibly drink. The message has always been and still is, if you are going to drink alcohol - do not drive."
