Alcohol and caffeine are also eliminated from the body at different rates (see graphs). Alcohol, a zero-order drug, will be eliminated at a constant rate regardless of the concentration of intoxication. The rate of elimination of first-order drugs like caffeine depends on the initial concentration of the drug in the body.

The exponential decay model for the graph on the right isy = 48.11(0.6)^tThe linear equation for the graph on the left isy = -0.015x + 0.115The rate of elimination here is 1.5%

Dangers of Mixing Caffeine and Alcohol

Caffeine and alcohol are classified as two different types of drugs. Caffeine is a stimulant, while alcohol is a depressant. When the two are mixed together, the caffeine will obscure drowsiness caused by the alcohol. Young people are then more likely to binge drink because they do not feel the effects of the alcohol and won't know when they've reached their limit.
