I enjoy drinking and (when I'm not growing a bub lol) I enjoy drinking responsibly and regularly. I feel comfortable with my drinking. I would not drink and drive. there's nothing wrong with enjoying a drink and doing so responsibly.
@GucciDahling Just a few I found from the first few pages.... All implying that those that have the one drink then drive are irresponsible with no societal responsibilities.
Am I not allowed to ask questions to clarify now? I can get tied up in semantics and wanted to understand where the poster was coming from.
I stated in my OP that I was looking to learn from other perspectives, hence my posing those questions.
I really appreciate you answering my questions and comments on this thread in a respectful way.
I've never been in a position where I've even had to make a decision about drinking and driving, and part of the reason I delayed driving for so long was because I didn't trust myself to make good choices. I acknowledge that my feelings might change when I move to my full license and I wanted to be informed and get a bigger picture. I also hadn't thought about alcohol in foods and medicine.
I think its been a really interesting thread, and I love some of the different ideas people have come up. Like the suggestion of lowering the limit, but having a reading under 0.05 counting as loss of demerit and fine like with speeding. That's really innovative. (I think it was TeaM's idea?)
