First off, you should know drinking and roaming the streets is illegal and could be fatal. You will end up in jail or cause someone a wreck by messing you into the road. This could lead to a dui or worst. You could commit murder, because most people don't remember the next day.

Drinking and driving kills thousands of people per week. This is caused by bars, because people get into their cars after being in the bar and have no designated drivers. A Dui can be harsh and make you walk the rest of your life, without driving. They can also be costly, because you have to go to a DUI school. Not a good path to take.

Not many people think about what type of role model you are setting to your children, when you go to the bar. You are telling them it's alright to go to a bar and drink. This could cause them to drink and drive when their older. However, many kids have parents that come home and beat their kids after being at bars. Very sad problem with this world.

Drinking can make you forget about a few major aspects of life, such as protection or whom you end up going home with. You may end up going home with some person that has one thing on his mind. Bars have many perverts and you may end up with a problem on your hands.

5 You Could Get Someone Pregnant

It would be wrong if I only included women, because there are women out there that want to be pregnant to get child support. This is becoming more common in bars and women waiting for that chance to make their move. Men never think that they can be victims too, so why not get wasted. Be warned you can be harmed too and have a problem on your hands.

Morels can be very important, because you don't want to make yourself look like you’re a easy person or a drunk. You should take precautions to drink very little or go with a friend. You don't want to just go home with just anyone. This is where your morels should be set right.

3 STD's

People that go to bars can have STD's and you should avoid sex at all cost with almost anyone. You should always learn about the person before going home with someone. Drinking increases sex drives and makes your mind think differently. So be careful and think ahead, because STD's cannot be seen sometimes.

2 Kidnapped

You might think this is far fetch, but all someone has to do is slip something into your drink and take you home. You next wake up in basement in a chair tied up. You might think it only happens in movies, but there are thousands of people being kidnapped every day.

1 Drinking in Public is Wrong!

I never drink in public, because you could hurt someone or make a bad impression on yourself. A cup of wine at a restaurant is healthy and in the comfort of your spouse. That is something that is fine, but drinking at a bar is asking for trouble. How many people do you hear "Wow that guy or girl is wasted and doing something stupid" or " That poor women crashed into a light pole and died after coming from the bar". Sad to think that people do this every day.

You may think I'm against going to bars, so be it, because I think it's plain wrong. Bars are the number one reason that makes drinking and driving more common. Many friends I knew when I was in school ended up dead, because of drinking and driving. Get this, it was because they just got back from the bar and didn't have a person to drive them home. Do you think these reasons are enough to stop you going to a bar?
