After my relationship ended, I realized that I had no friends of my own. After a few months I got in touch with some of the girls at work, and we would get together to go out to the club or bowling or out drinking. I have no issues with underage drinking, I personally think the 21 years or older law is silly, but if you think you are old enough to drink, then you need to be old enough to handle what comes with it.
So after bowling, we went back to a friends place and the girl who owned the place went out and got beer. I was driving, and even though I wanted to drink, I knew that any more then 2 drinks and I wouldn't be safe to drive. I was called "party pooper" and so forth, but I would rather get home safe and live to see the next day then to kill someone on the way home and live with the knowledge of that the rest of my life.
We had a 19 year old there who decided to sneak vodka into the bowling alley and was pretty slammed before she downed another 3 beers. She stood there for over an hour asking us and herself if she was OK to drive. IF YOU HAVE TO ASK, THE ANSWER IS NO! After 45mins of her asking, I looked her straight into the eyes and said "No, You are NOT ok to drive, and if this was MY place yoru keys would have been taken a long time ago. You will either stay here or I'll drive you home"
This was the last time I was asked out by these girls.
I lost friends because I stood up for the right thing. I may have even saved this girls life by standing up to her. In return though I have been black listed from future events. You know what though? That is fine by me. Real friends would have agreed with me and stood by me when I took a stand, not avoid me because of it.
So, how far would you go for a friend?

I would've done the same..
Honestly I'll do anything for my friends as long as it's legal, doesn't harm anyone, and I have the means to do it.
