buffscotty Posted April 2, 2007 Share Posted April 2, 2007 Hello, my name is Scott and I'm a 22 year old college student. I have always hated drinking and driving, I am not much of a drinker honestly and mostly do it because it is what my friends are doing. But most of them drive even after drinking heavy amounts. I usually go with them and they usually mock my attempts to call Taxi's or saferides. I drove myself the other night when I was drinking, and I was fine, I don't know what my BAC was but I'd tipped a few back, and drove just honestly so I could tell myself I could so I wouldn't feel like a big pansy. I worry about this alot, I worry about alot of stuff, I honestly feel I may have an anxiety problem sometimes. I don't know why I drink, I do enjoy the occasional drink, but honestly getting drunk has no appeal to me, but I do it because I feel that is what everyone else does, and hey, who wants to be different right? But I do have a problem because I do worry, and when I do things like get drunk or drive after drinking I feel awful, I have terrible worrys about it, but I do it anyways because that is what all my friends do, but more than anything I do it because I'm 22 and I worry why a college student like me wouldn't want to do those things. Sometimes I feel very alone because of this and sometimes I do harp to my friends about it, but mainly because I would just like someone to talk to about it. I feel alot of it is the masculine aspect, that men are able to drink and drive and should be bigger risk takers, (don't get me wrong, If I go out and have 2 or 3 beers and drive I don't worry), but I do want to monitor my drinking and be responsible but sometimes I worry that nobody will like me if I am that way, that I'll get to be like a pest. Well I know this probably sounds asanine to most of you,but I just had to talk to someone. If you have any questions I would be glad to answer them. Have a nice day. Link to comment
