Many years ago when the law started coming down heavy on drinking and driving after seeing a few guys get heavy fines for being stopped and didn't pass the breath machine test I just decided it just wasn't worth drinking if I had to drive. Now days they really slap a fine on you as well as having to go to alcohol diversion classes. Carrying concealed is very important to me when we leave home so I'm not about to jeopardize that right by drinking. When I can't carry, as in a hospital, I feel somewhat naked. Anyway about the only place I drink beer, wine or mixed drinks is at home. That may seem boring to some but that's what I've learned to do.
