hi everybody i was caught for drink driving a few weeks back i stupidly got in my car after consuming about ten cans of cider with the intention of driving home. i didnt get very far as i crashed into a parked car as soon as id set off. this incident has destroyed my life it is the most stupid thing ive ever done! i suffer from depression and use alcohol to combat this which makes it far worse! i cant even remeber getting in my car and the next thing i know im waking up in the cells i have only had a license for about 6 months and i am 26 years old. it has broke my mums heart and my friends as they all thought i was getting better with my alcohol and depression problems i am now back to square one and have lost my job. i blew 115 in breath and very nearly recived a custodial sentence if i hadnt of represented myself. court was adjourned until the 14th and im dreading losing my license it meant so much to me and had made my life better. why i did this stupid act i will never know im so ashamed of myself and thank god no one was hurt. im js looking for a chat or anything for peoples past experinces it would be very much apperciated. the one good thing to come out of this is i am now reciving help for my alcholism its just such a shame that drink driving had to be my wake up call for help.
