    I Wont Risk Some Else's Life

    I know too many people who have driven while intoxicated. Most of them haven't harmed or killed anyone. Most of them. I know too many people who have been hit by drunk drivers. Some of them didn't die. Some of them don't wish they had. I am not worried about what it would do...

    The Night Life Isn't Worth Death

    I one time in my late teens, very early 20s somewhere in there...  Drove VERY slightly buzzed, I wasn't impaired badly, but enough to feel that my reactions and driving seemed off, I drove 4 blocks, stopped at my friend's house, parked my car, and told him that I needed to...

    Perspective.

    on the one hand: i could drive intoxicated, possibly killing or maiming another person and/or myself, and consequently live the rest of my life in guilt, pain, and despair.... OR on the other hand: pay $10 for a cab. gotta go with option B. every time. it's just not worth it.
