Drinking lowers our inhibitions and can lead to us doing things we'd never do when sober, or putting people's lives at risk because of our drinking. I'm sad to say that I did it at least once. I drove while drunk. Luckily, I didn't cause an accident or harm anyone but I easily could have. And I did this after, when I was 12, my dad nearly killed our entire family by driving the wrong way on a rural highway right at a semi truck. Did drinking lead to you doing things you regret?
