    Recipe For a Reckless Night

    I wasn't the most responsible kid my sophomore year in high school. I treated my body similar to a bouncy ball. I threw it all over the place and watched it helplessly bounce from wall to wall. Recipe of the Night: 1.5 L  Red Wine 1       ...

    REALLY Stupid

    My cousin and I shared a bottle of champagne... this really makes my head spin. After an hour we had to go home... instead of calling my friends or other cousins, I decided to drive home. She passed out once in the car. I remember I stopped at a stop sign, turned to look both...

    I Drove Drunk 2

    I was at a party drinking like crazy because I was going to stay there. A guy showed up that I did not get along with so I thought it best to drive home. I reasoned that most of the drive was in the country and just one short rode to my house in the suburb. I actually got lost...

    Yeah, I Did.

    I was a teenager. Drove about a mile to a swimming hole. Quite drunk... eight or ten beers in at least. It was against my better judgement. I knew how stupid it was, but I had convinced a girl to go skinny dipping with me and all bloodflow was diverted away from my brain to other...

    I Really Regret It.

    The thing is, my father is an alcoholic. He totalled my mom's car when I was a toddler. I definitely know the problems alcohol give to your family and to others.   That is why I can't believe I drove drunk. I was going through a very rebellious and...

    Cool, Me Too...

    So yeah, I've also driven drunk like the rest of you.  Quite a few times actually.  Now I wasn't SOOO drunk, just a little more than tipsy.  And I've never really gone out of my lane(s) either.  But there's kind of a funny story about it... About 2 weeks...

    High Tolorance

    unfortunatly I have a high tolerance for alchol.  I can drink a lot and still be right as rain.  Unfortunatly the police breath-alizer does not take that into consideration.  So one of these days they will catch up to me for something small and stupid and than the...

    Stupid, Stupid

    This is one of the things I'm least proud. I was 16, at a party. I'd driven up there with a friend who said he'd be the DD for the way back, so I had some drinks. Then, when we went to leave, my friend told me he didn't have a driver's license, and only had 10 hours of driving...

    Oh charles dickens...

    It was the best of times, and the worst of times.  Puberty in Jr. High School.  Needless to say, alcohol became a coping mechanism for my odd biological shift taking place.  Best of times you ask?  Well, I didn't have a mortgage, or have to pay my own food, or...

    Last Night

    There is no way I should have driven, I don't even remember the drive.  I looked out to make sure there was nothing wrong with my car, it's actually straight in the parking space and damage free.  I'd like to say I will never do that again with 100% certainty, but I...

    Have Done It As Well....

    I have to admit I drove drunk as well. Not proud of it. But when we have a girls night out there is often a lot of wine involved. Next time I'm getting a DD.

    I Probably Shouldn't Drink With My Cousin Anymore...

    Although I rarely drink these days, there was a time when I drank more regularly, at parties or on weekends, with friends and family, though rarely to excess.  I've never blacked out nor been hungover (thankfully) - I've always known when I was reaching my limit and that if...

    I Remember When...

    I remember when any laws against driving drunk were almost never inforced -- the days before MADD and such.  I remember seeing some really crazy characters on the road (especially after the bars closed) who were driving so bad I was amazed they didn't kill someone or...

    I have done this soooooooo many times. The last time I did this was the worst night of my life. It involved a LOT of liquor, a halloween party, and a lot of cussing and crying and ridiculous behavior.

    Truthfully Not A Big Deal, But My Friends Won't Drink With Me Anymore Because Of It.

    It Can Happen To Anyone (long One, But Please Read)

    I rarely "partied" or got "wasted" and always made sure that others did not drive drunk and If I drank heavily it was indoors without a need to drive...It took me years to become comfortable driving my car in general because I was so anxious about hurting other people (I always...

    It was a very sunny morning and the birds were singing, and just as I was hoping for an eclipse of the sun and a shotgun to blow those birds away, I jolted out of bed and and ran to the window looking for my car. I'll be damned-- it was parked perfectly in my space, which...
