If you had a great deal to drink you could certainly still be legally drunk 24 hours later. I would not say it was normal though. If you got really drunk, it's normal to feel "a bit drunk" up to 24 later. It's called a HANGOVER. Your head is fuzzy, you're dehydrated, and your electolytes are probably off the scale. Contrary to popular belief, black coffee, fresh air or a cold shower doesn't help. Only TIME helps. During that time, don't drink any alcohol, drink juices like Gatorade, and eat small, healthy meals and take a multi-vitiman. THEN, be good to yourself and your liver! BEST, ADR I've been drunk 24+ hours after drinking. If you drink enough, it's possible. Not good or normal, though. After a binge, even when blood alcohol has returned to zero, brain function is still impaired- especially reflexes. this has been studied in driving simulators.

How long before you take a breathalizer can you drink?

You can take a breathalyzer any time you want after drinking. If you want to PASS a breathalyzer after drinking you need to know three things. 1 how many drinks did you have, how fast did you drink them and when did you have the last drink. For example: A 250 lb man can drink 5 drinks within 1 hour before becoming drunk then drink 1 drink every 40 minutes to stay drunk with a BAC of about .08 plus a little. More than that his BAC will increase by about .01 for every additional drink. So in a four hour period he can drink 9 drinks without being legally drunk and will probably pass a breathalyzer within 40 minutes after he stops drinking. A 150 lb. man drinking the same amount of alcohol will be legally drunk for another 3-4 hours after he stops drinking. In practice, it is better to wait at least 8 hours to be relatively sure you're not drunk. That is enough time for your body to metabolize a BAC of about 0.12, which is a very high BAC typical of heavy drinking. A BAC of 0.20 which is about the equivalent of drinking a bottle of whiskey, will typically be lowered to legal limits within 8 hours. Most people can't walk after drinking that much, but some can.

How long are you drunk?

That depends on your gender, how fat you are, how much you had to drink, and how high your tolerance is for alcohol in your system. Most people will be sober in 30 - 36 hours after they have stopped drinking completely. (If you drank enough to stay drunk longer than that, you would probably suffer from acute alcohol poisoning.)A high tolerance for alcohol, BTW, is one of the first signs of developing alcoholism.

Does beer effect sleep?

Yes. ETOH (alcohol) will alter the amount of REM sleep you get. You tend to stay in shallower states of sleeping while drunk, hence the reason many still feel tired after a night of drinking even if they do sleep.
