Alot of people here...say they don't drink and drive. I don't believe it....However, I do know that my sister has NEVER had any alcohol and driven a car. She has always been "fearful" of not being able to drive...as she is handicapped without alcohol. BUT, I know my sister and if she didn't have that handicap....she would have at least at one time drank and drove.
Maybe it is just my "brain"...because when I used to drink when I was younger I REALLY believed that EVERYONE drank....and everyone does not drink. So I could be wrong on this topic.
But, I find it really hard to believe that almost every person on here says the store is in walking distance from their home. I do believe that some people really do walk...but I do not believe that EVERYONE here has a store with liquor THAT close to their home.
The store has always been within walking distance from my home and I NEVER walked there. Sometimes I felt in better shape after work once I got some alcohol into my system. I can shamefully say...I have always drove after drinking...I had to bring my kids to school functions...or to the mall on the weekend (drop them off and pick them up).
I will say on the days that I had to drop them at the mall..I tried to minimize my drinking until I picked them up. I always also had a beer with me while I was driving. I sadly regret one day my son picked up my "cup" after a basketball game because he was thirsty (I always brought him a bottle of water..didn't that day)....and I reacted by slapping the cup out of his mouth.
I was horrified..and needless ...really...needless to say he was horrified to...I never felt so bad in my life, I never had raised a hand to either of my kids...and I did for THAT BEER....2 reasons...1 - I didn't want him to know it was BEER....and 2...I was worried about him ingesting the BEER.
I admit that God was with me and many people the many times I drove drunk. This last bender...I really TRIED not to drink under the influence. I would get the beer or vodka early in the a.m. and then stay home.
But, apparently I did drive a couple times drunk because my friend at the store...told me I did...and that I came in the store and asked her to cash a check...very scary...cause I did not remember it....I was telling her how I didn't drive drunk this time around...and she responded with that story for me....Thank GOD....I never hurt anyone and I never GOT CAUGHT.
