Yet so many drunk driving fatalities are caused by this very mentality. Its no wonder there are so many restrictions on alcohol.Murderstyle75No [QUOTE="MrGeezer"][QUOTE="capitalism25"] I knew I could drive safely years ago, that's why I said I never had accidents. I even remember this whole week during Summer 2011 where we just partied dead 6 days in a row. Me and a buddy of mine alternated everyday to drive all of our friends home and were safe. You would most likely die sober from fighting a lane with a truck and getting pushed off a cliff than being drunk here. Also as I said...police arent really strict here unless its elections....in May if I remember right Whatever dude, EVERYONE "never has any accidents" until they do have an accident. It's COMMON for people to drive drunk for years without incident, until they eventually get in an accident or get a DUI. It's flat out stupid to think that you won't get in a drinking and driving accident simply because it hasn't happened yet, that attitude is exactly what causes so many people to drink and drive until they get in an accident. If this is something that you're stupid enough to continue doing, I just hope no one ends up dying because of it. I don't really think it would happen though its very unlikely. Also accidents happen all the time may it be a coincidence, weather,infrastructure or the fault of another driver.....with or without alcohol you might be killed either way unexpectedly. People drink and drive in the US because their out of their noggin....no control while their drunk and no focus... that's why many people die there from crashes unfortunately. Looks like your government needs to get rid of guns and alcohol completely
As a general rule, any occasion I see a statistic that says "Most American Christians ..." I assume that it is not true of traditional Christianity. This is in part because most "American Christians" cannot even tell you whether Romans is the New Testament or the Old Testament.mindstormYour general rule is that American Christians are not true Christians? What are true christians anyway? And finding the different books in the Bible isn't hard...I remember a silly song in kinder to memorize the order
Dude, most people who cause first-time drunk driving accidents have been driving drunk for a while. Your chances of getting in an accident or getting arrested are pretty slim the first time you drive drunk. That doesn't somehow make it less irresponsible though. If anything, the fact that you think you can do it safely means that you're more likely to continue doing it, which makes it more likely for you to eventually get in an accident or get arrested.MrGeezerI knew I could drive safely years ago, that's why I said I never had accidents.

t binge alcohol. Unfortunatly nothing will be done about it because its a huge money grab for our government but the only lives I see ruined are people's who drink cheap garbage that makes up the vast majority of the market.Murderstyle75I know right? I forgot about that government part. Most people think that our government here is doing the right thing by adding the syntax bill which increased the price for all alcoholic beverage by 30%...in turn decreasing alcoholism. But apparently not....our government has been corrupt since the 80's and they obviously know that drinking these beverages is the most practiced past time here. I don't think alcohol makes up the majority of the market though
Just because you and your friends have not crashed doesnt mean it won't happen. A couple years ago, this lady wiped out a car full of teens killing all four of them. According to friends and family members, she was always one of those active drunks who has been driving drink for years.Murderstyle75Actually depends on the person really. I've been drinking for 4 years and no accidents. The closest thing to alcohol damaging me is dehydration....which I lost all my gym progress in a single week. Maybe its really wild there...or the complacency of American drivers towards large roads. My cousin got repeated DUI's in the states in a single month. Also, the roads here suck. Safety thrown out the window, double parked cars, extremely narrow roads and blind curves everywhere because of squatters. Its possible that these is what actually makes us avoid accidents, being cautious and careful all the time. One way to combat intoxication is to put your mind to work anyway
It depends. Its actually quite interesting how different our worlds are, but what happens to you is your fault, not alcohol. I'm from Ph and I've been drinking since I was 17 mostly on parties and I tell you accidents like those are VERY RARE here. Probably 80% of the people drink during weekends but accidents never happen. Very drunk people are actually persuaded to sleep/nap in bars/clubs to stop them from driving(police aren't strict here) and active drunks can drive very well(me and my friends all know how to drive but no crashes ever). Relationships here are strengthened with alcohol(my ex usually bought alcohol to movie nights) and fights rarely happen(people usually gang up on you if you try to start a mess). To drink you need discipline and responsibility. That puts me back to my quote "its your fault not the alcohol" The taste of alcohol is opinionated, but I was never used to the taste of Jagermeister though :)
I personally don't condone drinking at all. I've seen what it does to people that abuse it (my brother nearly died after ramming a tree and spent 7 months in the hospital before they released him. 2 brain surgeries, facial reconstrustion surgery, toe amputation, surgery to correct a damaged heart valve, had his ankles fused together so he can't bend them anymore, and 10 months of physical therapy), I've seen it ruin relationships with family and friends, and I've had to disarm more than a few drunks with a knife in my time. It doesn't even taste good. It's just another one of those substances people only want to keep around for enjoyment rather than benefit. Hell, I gurantee any response to this I get arguing the benefits of alcohol consumption will have resulted from prior google search right before typing it than from knowledge accrued as a genuine curiosity in the decision to drink or not.
Now, it's not my place to deny others of their right to drink. That right barely belongs to politicians, but you won't see me voting to lower the drinking age to a point when most people I know are already getting totally sh*tfaced simply because they can.
It's true most of the consequences of alcohol is personal fault of the individual and not the substance, but my real problem with alcohol is it really doesn't exist for any reason other than to drink it. That can be said for a lot of things, but most things don't impair or damage the human body like alcohol does in such a short amount of time.
It's either develop the self-control to combat the physical, mental, and emotional effects or completely ruin your life. I'd rather just not have anything to do with it. Saves me time and money.Soft-drinks also don't have any reason but are consumed by almost everyone. Though there are actual health benefits from mediated consumption of alcohol...I should admit that I do it for fun only. What people should really avoid though is alcohol poisoning and alcoholism, which can kill you biologically.
Because you will fall into an endless pit while burning, while maggots eternally feast on you, and while forever grinding your teeth. Also, Satan can't do anything to you because he's sharing the same fate. Christians say that devils are poking at you too but I think thats a load of BS because hell was made for punishment....everyone is in pain just like you.
