so, last night, i didn't drink. AT ALL, which is a miracle for me, driving or not. even if i'm driving, as idiotic as it is, i'll have one drink. maybe two. but i know my limit (as stupid as i know it is to drink and drive..)

last night, although my friend joe was cajoling me, telling me to have one drink, i refused the entire night, drinking only diet coke.

on the way home, on the 202, 3 cars in front of me went from going 65 to 0 in .2 seconds, practically. i slammed on my brakes and skidded, stopping mere inches from the bumper in front of me.

had i been drinking at ALL, i KNOW that there was NO way i could have made that stop in time, and i would have been responsible for a 4 car pile up. not just responsible for a 4 car pile up, but responsible for a 4 car pile up while UNDER THE INFLUENCE, AND RIGHT IN FRONT OF A COP CAR.

folks, don't drink and drive. if i wasn't a believer now, i DEFINITELY am now. i've been planning on quitting drinking, and it truly hasnt' been difficult yet. just, um, if you DO drink, do it responsibly.

That's something I've been considering lately...outright stopping the drinking. It's not like I get smashed every week, and when I have a drink with dinner, I don't always do it to get drunk. It can be really fun sometimes, and then...sometimes I feel I do it too much. I dunno. I hear you on the driving thing, too. I'm ashamed to admit it, but there have been too many times where I probably should not have taken the wheel. And a few times I DEFINITELY should have have taken the wheel. I've been lucky though...never had an accident or gotten close to one. But luck runs out.

Girls-I quit drinking, substituting the herb. Since that shit makes me want to sit on my ass all the time, I rarely go anywhere.

Thank God you and everyone else there are alright. Good for you for sticking to not drinking, aubkabob!

On another sweet and mushy note, involving drinks, my sweetie just made me hot chocolate (AWW)

Re:
exactly. luck runs out.

plus, i know it's a million times healthier for me to NOT drink.

the thing that irks me, is situations like today where i'm telling my coworkers that i have basically quit drinking, and how on friday night, usually the only night i drink, how i didn't have one.

their response? "*scoff* but how much did you drink last night or the night before?"

what kind of a freaking PROBLEM do these people think i have?!?!
