Drinking And Driving: St. Patrick’s Edition
As you know it was St. Patrick’s Day earlier this week, and I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.
Well, St. Patrick’s Day was a few days ago, and this happened to me. I was out for an evening with friends and had more than several beers followed by a couple of bottles of rather nice red wine, and then a few vodka shots. Although relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was …well… slightly over the limit.
That’s when I did something I’ve never done before: I took a taxi home. Sure enough on the way there was a police roadblock, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident.
This was a real surprise to me, because I had never driven a taxi before. I don’t know where I got it, and now that it’s in my garage I don’t know what to do with it.
So, anyway, if you want to borrow it for a night on the town, give me a call.

In today’s world, it is becoming more and more acceptable to abuse drugs and alcohol. Why is this?
People have always to some extent consumed alcohol and drugs, there is even an argument that daily consumption of especially alcohol can have health benefits and lead to a healthier and longer life. There is even an argument that in certain cases use of illicit drugs can lead to a pain free life.
Many argue that drugs or no more harmful than alcohol and sometimes have less harmful effects on the human body than alcohol.
All of this is open to debate, and while the consumption of illegal drugs is becoming legal in many states and countries we have to begin asking ourselves why are people becoming more and more addicted to their use. It is one’s own personal choice as to whether he or she wants to ruin their life by the excessive consumption of drugs ,(illegal or legal),and or alcohol.
I don’t think the debate should be over whether or not one consumes drugs or alcohol one has to ask , “Why are so many turning to these destructive behaviors?”
