^that post was written on a smartphone

but to bring up a somewhat related topic, in my experience driving while tired is just as dangerous if not more dangerous than driving while intoxicated. if i am drunk but not drunk to the point of stumbling around, i can probably drive safer than i can if i am in that state where sleep is beckoning me and my brain is shutting down against my will.

not that i am encouraging drunk driving or anything, but honestly i used to work the graveyard shift and sometimes after work on the way home i would find myself on the sidewalk or i would hear my car just barely bumping up against the bushes next to the guard rail on the high way while going 80 mph. and that's what broke me out of my sleepy trance. and the thing that really sucks is i honestly didn't have much of an alternative. i lived a few towns over from my job. i couldn't afford to live where i worked, and i couldn't take public transport cause of the hours that i worked. the economy was **** and so i was lucky to even have a job, so it wasn't easy for me to just find somewhere closer to work.

My friend got a DUI. I let him know how big of a dumbass he was for it.

I've done stoned driving, but that was just for a few blocks and I wasn't that baked (my friend was incapacitated).

Well, glad to see everyone here agrees it's a stupid thing to do. And yet so many do it. You'd have to wonder why? When you're drunk, does the idea of crashing into someone not enter your head, or do you think "**** them I'm gonna do what I like gimme those keys"? I've only been drunk twice in my life, and as I say I don't and can't drive so the situation has never come up, but I'd like to think that even then, had I been able to, I would have been in enough of a fit state of mind to know not to get behind the wheel. So why do people do it? Is it seen as a "**** you" to the cops? Seen as their right? Or not even thought about at all (maybe till it's too late)?

No matter how many heart-rending ads they run on TV, showing the effects of drink driving, people still seem to ignore it and go ahead. I mean, if you were drunk and someone handed you a loaded gun would you fire it? Is there that much of a loss of control/common sense when you're drunk? I ask because as I say I hardly drink and I just can't get my head around the state people get into when drunk.

honestly, i can say personally that what made me do it was just the confidence that i wouldn't actually wind up wrecking. obviously when you're drunk you don't have the best reasoning skills, personally booze tends to make me feel invincible and makes me very reckless. there was one time when i was honestly really close to stealing a car when i was drunk. as i've gotten older i've had enough bad experiences with dumb intoxicated decisions to be able to remind myself whenever i'm ****ed up that i am an idiot while intoxicated, and that is basically how i learned to stop letting drugs & booze make me make reckless decisions.

Drove drunk in my younger years, felt like a piece of **** for it, even then. I had two good friends die after wrecking while drunk when I was 18 and know many others with similar stories. I got a DUI several years ago and am still struggling with it. I made the decision to stop driving altogether and if I ever do drive again it won't be with a single digit on my breath.

I'd bet for most people they simply feel that they haven't drank enough to impair their motor skills to the point of danger.

Cars are pretty easy to sleep in too.

Think for most people it comes down to thinking they'll be OK as they're not that pissed.

Either that or it's a short distance. Unless you're absolutely steaming past the point of thinking straight.
