If I were you, I wouldn’t do that. Hi,everyone. I'd like to know in what situation you would say: "If I were you, I wouldn’t do that." Can you give me some examples? Thanks!So you are giving advice about a future situation. Can "If I were you, I wouldn’t do that" use in a past situation?

I'd say that, for instance, if someone asked me about my opinion on drug abuse. For instance: Someone: "Hey man, I'm going to smoke weed this weekend!" Me: "If I were you, I wouldn't do that."

Reaching for a piece of cheese, one mouse said to the other, "It may be a trap. If I were you, I would not do that."

I would say that if a person was going to do something that would be hurtful to others or themselves. It could be used for anything that is a warning against causeing physical harm, or emotional harm.
