    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...

    Shouldn't Have

    I drove, knowing that I shouldn't...nothing happened I made it home and no one was hurt, but i shouldn't have been on the road...I should have just stayed or called someone, and i knew it!  I had a very close friend die in an accident while driving drunk...I feel very guilty...

    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.

    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       ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Yea...

    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.

    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...

    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...
