Alcoholic here. This goat ain't lying. I have done years in prison for drunk driving. Call a friend, call a cab.

Seconded. While I was never caught while in the military being the designated drunk driver, I know at least three dozen that were, and three have committed suicide. I still love my drinks, but do not DDD anymore after losing several friends. It is not worth it.

Active alchy? If you know, why not quit? Just curious.

Honest answer? It's easier to face the pain and a life full of fuck-ups. Plus, I like getting drunk.

OPGoat is underestimating the costs for most people. It's pretty unusual to get out for under 10k if you have a job of any kind.

My DUI was caught by a cop that was on a task force that does nothing but look for DUI. They literally have no other purpose. My attorney was emphatic in emphasizing that the setup is a massive money maker and the last thing the DAs and judges want is for DUI arrests to actually be reduced. They only lose if DUIs go down, therefore it's as OP suggests down to you as an individual to not give these people their cushy paying jobs.
