Oprah: Promise me—no matter what else you do—you will never drink and get in a car and drive again. There are so many lives that have been destroyed [by drunk driving]. ... Do you promise?

Lauren: I promise.

Dr. Robin: It's [your] first step in loving yourself. It's [your] first step in being worthy. ... It's a step of loving you to not drink and drive.
