    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...

    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...

    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...
