Easier said than done i know but i have not let it get to me this time i seem to be able to block it out. I have accepted it is what it is or it can drive you crazy you know you will get it back at some point.
Thought about emailing Tim Burton ?
Like you say much easier said than done but completely agree. Through the whole thing I was most at peace from about month 2 into the ban because I accepted what it was and there was nothing I could do about. Actually exhausted myself thinking about it and trying to find a fix, and truthfully, the only fix is waiting it out. Once you hit the final month or two before getting your licence back the stress starts all over again with the whole wondering what could stop you getting your licence back.
Honestly, I get the crime has to be harshly punished, to an extent I agree with that. What I don't agree with is the millions of different circumstances than can pan out after someone is caught doing this. To me there seems to be no consistency whatsoever. From the get go police discretion seems to come into. I got two female friends that turned on the water works and had actually been driven home without charge! Ironically, one of those ladies still went on to get banned eventually. Then it doesn't seem consistent on whether you are offered blood or urine testing in the station, should you fail to provide breath analysis. Then the court punishments seem to vary all over the place. If your HRO you will probably know the way the medical is conducted is wildly inconsistent.
For me it should be as simple as if you are caught drink driving with a reading of x amount you get banned for x amount of time, set in stone. It really shouldn't be in the hands of individuals whereby if they had a bad day they can mess you up for another year. The fact the DVLA often put it in the hands of a struggling medical system where people with cancer are struggling for appointment is truly stinking for me. If the DVLA want to continue punishing offenders it' should be at the offender's cost in money and at the dvlas cost in time
