I am honest or otherwise I would be wasting keystrokes. It's not about luck. It's about being responsible, which obviously, I am not and I need to change. Yesterday.I do not know where you live...but I am not sure I believe you about night meetings only...what about week-ends?
Weekends are not enough...I want to go during week too
Where are all your friends...no-one can give you a ride? if you get a sponsor they may be able to help you get to the meetings.
My friends do best they can and they support me with this....I live pretty far from them
But if you are just paying lip service the AA people will see right thru you.
No lip service. Why would I waste my time on here and type then?
I am having a hard time believing that you only drink occasionally with your friends and just HAPPEN to have been caught drinking and driving...how many times have you done this and not been caught?
I do not drink on weekdays, and even on some weekends. If I do, I go with my friends. I SWEAR TO GOD this is the VERY first time I got behind the wheel after drinking since my last DUI in 2006. I do not know WHY I drove. I work out, I eat healthy and I take care of myself. I don't need alcohol and don't need to drink to have fun. I don't crave it. I went out and made a dumbest decision to drive...time to face reality that me and this stuff is causing me bunch of problems. I do not believe however that it's a disease...I am responsible for my own actions....nobody was putting those beers in my throat...and nobody forced me to drive.. I made a choice...
You are either not being honest with even yourself about your drinking...or you are the UNLUCKIEST person on earth!! What to believe...what to believe...
**************....AA may help you quit drinking but you have much bigger problems right now. You are about to become a convicted felon.
I wasn't convicted of anything yet. That's why I have a pre-trial date. Plus, they are treating it as a 2nd in 6 years.
That good job you care so much about is probably going to disappear.
Got that covered allready... I won't lose my job. Thanks
Quitting drinking is a good start but you need to look at the big picture, save that taxi money, sell your car and get a good lawyer, otherwise you are going to jail.
Not selling my car, since I will be driving again in 45-90 days. Have to get to work somehow, no? Have one of the best attorneys. yes, I will go to jail and I am ready to face the consequences.
Stop being so whiny and pathetic, it is time to grab your bootstraps and man up. This is your life you need to take control. GET A LAWYER the court will get you alcohol rehab.
Like I said, got the lawyers....and I am going to alcohol treatement tomorrow at 10am..by my own choice..
You will not be driving in 45 to 90 days look over the penalties you should be getting again. I think everyone here hopes you get the max as well. I sincerely hope you learned your lesson but the truth is we will see you post asking about how to get out of your fourth DUI. I like to see the real you come out, I originally thought you were an underage female posting. Now I am pleased to see you are simply a pretentious multiple offender that has no remorse after a week.**************....
I am talking about working privilages. If the case is solved and I take a plea within 45 days, I can apply for work priviledges. That is the best case. Worst case, is 90 days no driving anywhere.You will not be driving in 45 to 90 days look over the penalties you should be getting again. I think everyone here hopes you get the max as well. I sincerely hope you learned your lesson but the truth is we will see you post asking about how to get out of your fourth DUI.

APPEAL PROCESS FOR ADMINISTRATIVE LICENSE SUSPENSION (ALS)
The court must hold the administrative license suspension hearing within five days of arrest. The appeal is heard at this initial appearance if requested. The scope of appeal is confined to four issues.
1. Was the arrest based on reasonable grounds?
2. Did the officer request the person to take a test?
3. Was the violator made aware of the consequences if he/she refused or failed the test?
4. Did the person refuse or fail the test?
A court may still issue a suspension even if 1-4 is proven by defendant if court finds the person is a threat to public safety.
