There is no definitive answer to this question as both texting and driving and drinking and driving are dangerous activities. However, it is generally agreed that texting and driving is worse than drinking and driving, as texting requires more attention and focus than drinking does. This is because when you are drinking, you are still aware of your surroundings and can make decisions, whereas when you are texting, you are completely focused on the conversation you are having, which can lead to dangerous distractions.
