Default My friend drives drunk

I hate to say it but I have a friend that has an incredibly high alcohol tolerance and isn't afraid to drive drunk. One of his relatives and I have tried to get him to stop but he just doesn't listen as he's convinced he can drive well. Yes, I know he's being idiotic. I have to admit he seems to be able to drive pretty well when he's drunk but I want to convince him to stop... or at least limit his driving.

We've thought about buying him a breathalyser but that will only prevent him from driving on the worst of days. Another thing he's actually excited about doing is testing how well he can drive on a driving simulator and compare that to his sober driving. This might give him a good idea what his limits really are. Does anyone here have any suggestions for a computer program that might fit this need well?

Wait till he crashes and dies. Then laugh and say I told you so.

if he does it habitually then it might actually be worth it to make sure he gets a DUI so that he stops.

I don't know anyone who drives drunk who has been compelled to stop because people asked him to.

Driving drunk is one of the greatest feelings in the world. Don't deprive your friends of it.

I like to drive drunk and pretend I'm in a space ship. Hopefully its been raining and I pretend that all the little froggies are enemy aliens planning an invasion so I have to crush them.

you are a terrible friend if you dont forcibly keep him from driving when he is drunk, even if this means nut shots.
