D.U.I.

Unread postby ML » Sat Sep 30, 2006 3:30 pm

I don't really know what to say here , except that I am lost and don't know what to do. On August 31st. my girlfriend of almost 4 years walked out on me. At this time I hadn't drank for almost two weeks. I didn't drink for the next 8 days. Then I decided I was going out to try to forget about her. I had a few too many drinks and wound up being arrested for D.U.I. About 7,and 13 years ago I was arrested for 2 prior D.U.I.'s. I know this is serious, and I know I need help. I stand a very good chance of going to jail for this. I don't know whatt to do. I know I need help, but I don't have alot of money. I do have a good job,(for now anyway), but ,I don't have money saved. It was always spent, alot of it on alcohol. I want to quit and straighten my life out. I did quit before, until I met HER. She is an alcoholic, I fell in love with her, and it was just downhill from there. I am no longer with her, and I don't want to get involved with anyone that has an alcohol problem again. I need to straighten MY life out before it is too late, and I lose my job, my house, and my friends. I know I have a problem, and I know I need help. What I don't know is what to do next. Since Sept. 9th, when I received the third D.U.I. all I have been doing is going to work and comming home, and thinking about what to do. I just can't come up with any answers. My hearing is on 10/18, I know I have to do something, but what? I want to quit, I want to STAY sober, I want to have a normal life without alcohol. How?, where do I start?

Hi ML,
You may want to call an organization like Livengrin for instance and ask them what to do. Being part of an outpatient program would probably help. You can go to work during the day and go to Livengrin at night. How does it sound?

That is a good idea. It can only help.

Why are you sad?
