DUI-The Final Straw

Unread postby creebs1 » Sat Oct 22, 2011 9:34 pm

I am trying to cope with not having this poison in my life. I just recently got into a pretty bad accident and was taken in for the 1st time ever. I have a crystal clean record and now I'm in fear of the worst. It's just a shame that it took me this long to realize what I have to do to become a better person. I'm just glad no one was hurt in this unfortunate event.

I have been abusing myself as well as others in my life for the better part of 4 years now. I lost my job earlier in the year, I'm going through a divorce after 9 years of marriage, and now losing a means of transportation. I know I escape from reality because I'm just too stressed and frustrated to deal with it. 2011 has honestly been a year from hell. But I'm setting my goals in moving forward with positivity.

I used to wake up in the morning and crave a cup of coffee, but anymore my first thoughts are of alcohol. I get the shakes, become anxious, feel nauseous, and get the sweats when I'm not using. The first beer always leads to too many and because of it I've made some pretty bad decisions. I need help. I talk to God pretty frequently now. He's helped me out with all my obstacles thus far and I ask his forgiveness now once again. I hope he does.

I want to be a better person. A more productive, positive, and successful person. I am super lucky to have really good friends who support me but I know I need to start attending meetings so that I can talk to people with this same addiction.

If any of you have been in a similar situation and have any tips in regard to DUI's and the proper steps needed to be taken, please write back.

Thanks so much!
