Alcohol Intake Warning!

I have a close friend who had imbibed, then drove (dumb, yes), and had an accident in which she totaled her car, but nobody was hurt, thank heavens. She was tested and found to have a .21 blood alcohol level, which was very bad as the legal limit is .08. She had thought that she wasn't impaired because she didn't feel it, having had an RNY about 15 years ago.
Final answer: overnight in the slammer, lots of fines, and a breathalyzer on her car for the foreseeable future.
So don't drink and drive, even if you "feel" sober.

Yeah, so was she! In addition to replacing her car, there were attorney's fees and legal fines, plus the apparatus which she has to use EVERY time she drives her car! One good thing is that she hasn't touched a drink in seven months! Sadly, she already knew all this, about the effects on us, as she is a long-standing RNY patient.
I don't come here as much as I used to do, so I hope this might be available on a search.

I agree; the potential for harming someone else is enough to make one's skin crawl.
