What do you mean by "stop looking at it like a drug". It is
a drug! I don't mind if it's legal (I've never used it, by the way), but there are risks involved.
Over here (Netherlands), apart from alcohol tests used for possibly drunk drivers, also drug tests are being developed. It appears that driving under the influence of drugs can be dangerous: concentration and reaction speed drop dramatically. The better the quality (meaning more effect on the mind), the higher the risk, specially when combined with alcohol.
As far as I'm concerned: don't drink alcohol or use drugs when you have to drive or do anything that requires concentration and attention, and watch the frequency of use. Although not formally addictive, you can get used to the pleasant effects and use more and more.
