If you have been arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) more than once, you most likely consumed an alcoholic beverage and then drove a car. That is an error in judgment. You could kill or maim yourself, or someone’s son, daughter, mother or father. Whether or not you believe you need intervention, get help!
You need to honestly ask yourself: “Do I have a drinking problem?” If, in fact, have a drinking problem, you need to get help in order to understand the problem of alcoholism. Obtain an alcohol evaluation, and attend Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) meetings. You may or may not be an alcoholic, but everyone can benefit from the advice and insight available at a twelve-step group. Use this challenge as an opportunity to improve your life.
Consider the consequences of a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) arrest. This arrest poses a major inconvenience in your life, and is expensive to handle in Court, whether or not you win the case. Then, consider the price of a taxicab. A taxicab is much cheaper.
