To be fair, SQL Injection can only occur where the user has influence over the parameter. If your parameter is a constant, or provided by you, there's little risk since the user cannot change the statement that is going to be executed.

..but, parameterized queries are not done "just" to prevent SQL injection, they provide more benefits. While it may take you a minute longer to write it, it makes the code a lot more readable, improving maintainability. There's also an impact on performance[^] if you re-execute the query.

That's not something that every hobbyist wants to learn, so the advice has become that it is NEVER OK to NOT use them. I agree with that advice, since adding the code will not have a downside.

This will sound rude but that's just being lazy. If it is worth doing at all, it is worth doing it correctly.

Upvoted for asking "why am I doing this"; it proves you are actually thinking about what you are doing, and trying to find alternatives.
