Hi all. I got a DUI during my last drunk. In California you have to attend a one hour panel as part of your program. So I went to mine tonight. I am so tore up right now. I have not stopped crying for the last hour and a half. I am so lucky I did not kill anyone during my drinking career. All the times I drove drunk. I feel so terrible and guilty. I can not believe how selfish and stupid I was. Ugh. The last speaker was a woman who got a DUI, quit driving and eventually got into recovery. When she had 4 years sobriety, her 17 yr old daughter and her best friend were killed by a drunk driver. I lost it and have not stopped.
Has anyone else had to go through this program? If so, how did it affect you? Thanks for letting me share.
