Hi new to this, I crashed my car, it was written off, yes I was drunk driving, which i've never done before, got taken to the police station and am in court in february. I'm lost, I have a new business that I need to drive for, I'm going to lose everything, I was on setraline for depression at the time, it was my grandads anniversary of when he passed away, and I'm pretty sure that I basically was having a full on breakdown at that point. This sort of thing is totally out of character for me, I've had a clean licence up to know, and no other convictions, I'm not eating or sleeping, with worry. Do I need to get a solicitor? Would a breakdown be reason enough to get the ban shortened?
