Drink responsibly, we hear it all the time, especially in alcohol ads. But do we drink responsibly? If you were to ask me, a mom, I would say no we don’t.
In fact, I actually know people who drink and drive all the time. It scares me to death to know that people would be so irresponsible as to put others lives in danger in such a preventable way.
I don’t have a problem with drinking of alcoholic beverages. If you read my blog then you know I enjoy a glass of wine just about daily. No, my problem is with the drinking AND driving. Options are available for people who want to go out and drink.

We have to learn to be responsible when we’re out drinking or even when we’re at home. At no time is it o.k. or responsible to drink and drive. I teach my teenage sons to never get in a car with someone who has been drinking. I explained to them to always call home regardless of the time and I will come and pick them up no questions asked. A sort of hall pass if you will. I’m sure most of us do indeed drink responsibly, but if you know of someone who doesn’t share this post and have them go and look at the “New York DUI Lawyers” Top 10 Anti-Drunk Driving Ads to see all of the horrific drinking and driving ads. It will serve as a wake up call for many. Regardless how horrific they may appear if they save just one life, they are working.
Drink Responsibly….. Don’t Drink & Drive…
