So often we hear the sad stories of both young and old not making it home because of an accident where there was a DUI (Drinking Under the Influence) involved. The heartache that goes with these reports is probably indescribable. So what is the problem with “just a few beers”…probably nothing…if a person knows when too many is definitely too many.
I remember one date I had in my youthful years…and he definitely was not able to drive anyone anywhere. The choice I made that night was not an easy one…because it was not only embarrassing, but a definite let-down to a night that could have been a happy one. I asked another guy that I knew was not drinking that night to take me home. He did.
Recently I saw a Budweiser commercial that had a good message of choice…even if it was a bit sad. It had a lesson in CHOICES:
- The CHOICE not to drive.
- The FACT that some made a CHOICE to drive…and did not make it home.
- There may be those at home WAITING…and counting on you to return. It would be best to think before it becomes just a few…or a few too many.
Watch this video and see what you think. (or better still…watch it with a young person.)
