    1. In what possible world would you think it proper that you should allow yourself to be pressured into drinking?

    2. If I were a passenger on the plane about to depart with a captain who had been drinking, I would hope you would report him. When you say he looks drunk, how does one look drunk? He may be disoriented or have some disease while not being drunk, however, if he is ill, he should not be in the cockpit. You might have some latitude as to whether you report him to company personnel as opposed to law enforcement.

    3. You should follow the policy of your airline.
