    Getting drunk period is terrible. I don't do it. I've seen people drunk whom I know. Having witnessed their stupor felt empathically embarrassing.

    'Cause I don't drive. But I wouldn't drink and drive if I did drive because I don't want to increase my chances of killing/maiming myself or other people.

    well, sold my car before i left to canada, didn't own one there, have since gotten used to public transportation and now choose to never worry about parking, car maintanance, car payments or insurance. i may reconsider this when/if google self-driving cars go commercial.

    before that i used to drink drunk often, because:
    1. there was nobody dependent on me.
    2. i was somewhat emotionally stunt regarding the lives of others.
    3. i didn't like letting my friends drive my car.
    4. nobody else i hang out with persistently had a car, damn hippies.

    and i have to say that being overly-conscious of my how much more prone i am to potential accidents actually brings my awareness of it closer to realistic levels - all my tickets, and the couple of small accidents i've being in, have taken place sober. if only there was an alcoholic placebo which would make me think i am drunk without being drunk, i would have being one of the safest driver in the country.

    I (now) live in a sprawling city where getting a Taxi for yourself can be a 50 or 60 dollar proposition.

    There isn't any public transport to suit my needs, and I usually meet friends out places.

    Also, there needs to be a distinction between drinking and driving and drunk driving.

    As it stands right now it takes me 8+ beers to get a good strong buzz (my sweet spot on the continuum of intoxication), or 4-6 bourbon and gingers, or 2-3 glasses of bourbon.

    When I hit a place where my motor skills or cognitive faculties preclude my ability to drive, I won't. This doesn't happen very often as I generally know before I go to an event I'm going to get that drunk at. And as such choose not to drive to it.

    In my current recollection, there are only 1-3 times I've ever driven drunk.

    I can't count the number of times I've drank and then driven.

    But given my circle of friends, and how big a role drinking plays in our get togethers, if I were to choose to never drive after drinking, I just wouldn't be able to hang out with my friends anymore.

    Pretty much anytime I go out with friends we get drinks.

    I got pulled over in college after going to a social where I had 9 mixed drinks in 2.5 hrs. I passed the drunk test the cop gave me. Not the stand on one leg one, the follow the flashlight with your eyes and see if your eye stutters (the one you have no control over whether you pass or not).

    Anyway, I know my limits, and my driving record is reflective of this. Do I drink and drive yes. Do I drive when it is beyond my capacity to do so...

    Alcohol doesnt make you a good driver. I'm not suicidal or homicidal either.
