Drunk Driving OR Just Buzzed Driving
Drinking and driving - it almost killed my brother. I know many people who have very tragic stories because someone thought they were okay to drive.  Maybe we have all been there at one point or another...most guys who have a few beers with friends to watch a game know what I mean.

I am in the process of losing weight, and when I start feeling like I’m ugly or I let myself go or people think I’m fat, I try to push those thoughts from my head - GB
