concerned for someone - August 1st 2017, 11:29 PM

I am worried if someone I know is safe. This guy I know will some times drive me home, after he has had a pint of beer (though it really is no more than that) and when I asked, he told me it was fine, as it would take more to get him drunk

But, more and more people are starting to agree that alcohol should be avoided completely prior to driving and implying that the "limit" is a silly thing to have, anyway.

i believe it to be bad for me too (more than usual) with me being a musician at age 27 and all that

The limits for drink driving can be quite confusing as there are many factors which may affect how much alcohol can affect a person.

In theory, one pint of beer may be okay but more than that may be considered over the limit. But that's in theory. The reality is, neither you nor this person want to be at risk for drunk driving accidents or offences. Maybe you can find ways of making your own way home or declining the offer to let him drive you home? Unfortunately, if he doesn't see anything wrong with having a pint of beer before driving then there isn't much you can do to stop him apart from letting him know the risks of driving with alcohol in his system. You may not be able to help him so much, but that doesn't mean you have to be in the same situation either.
