Stopping a friend from driving is pretty easy. However, stopping a drunk friend from driving can be a pretty difficult task. After all it is the alcohol in the intoxicated buddy you are talking to, not your friend. Drunken people are known to be aggressive and confrontational, as the alcohol fools their mind in to believing that they can accomplish the task at hand, when they cannot. Poor motor skills, impaired senses and the chances of accidents are just a few reasons you should stand against your friends driving while intoxicated.
Become The Controller
If your buddy has driven to a party while drunk, your primary goal for the evening should be to not let him drive. Hiding his car key or calling Safe Ride is the best option. By stopping him from driving drunk you are doing something that could prevent a lot of things from happening so try your best. Say things like:
I forgot my phone in your car give me the keys and hide them
Lets book a Safe Ride home.
Be Prepared To Use A Little Force
Your drunken friend may start to accuse you of ‘spoiling the fun’ or you trying to control them. You have to be prepared for this and don’t take anything personal, simply keep calm and tell him you care, that is the only reason you are doing this.
Remember to maintain a cool and soft tone. Alcohol is known to push the anger receptors high so avoid saying anything embarrassing or something you know would make him angry.
No matter how your friend resists, you shouldn’t give in. Keep telling him you are calling Safe Ride because you care.
