just got a dui

Hi. I just got a dui last night and it was suggested that I be proactive and start going to meetings right away. I do actually hope themeetings will help me. Do the meetings provide some way to register so I can prove to the courts that I have been to them?

I believe since AA meetings are anonymous, it's only your lawyer can convince the judge that you attended the meetings/forum by telling your lawyer where you had your meetings and knowing things like the twelve steps and the sobriety prayer among the few. Good luck.

Good luck to you. Lose yourself and you'll find the keys you really need. I hope you find them.

My friend just started his practice and I think he will be a good DUI lawyer one day. If you need any kind of assistance, feel free to ask me. Though I still will say that it’s far better not to drive when you are high on alcohol. Some people learn it the hard way.

I can relate to just having a DUI. Except I totaled my car and another and during that I hit my windshield and cracked my head open. It was a terrible experience and mistake but we all must go through hard trials in life to finally see that is isn't the life we want to live. I hope you can find the joy within to keep moving foward. It's hard but I know you can do it. So don't feel alone through this whole process. I passed my 12 step program and my DUI class and its an achievement not giving up. I will pray for you that God keeps you strong. I'm always here if you need someone to talk to.
