I never thought of myself as a victim. I am taking the punishment like a man. I stayed in jail overnight and posted my own bond with my own cash. I've paid my tickets and have hired an attourney on my own. Gee, what else do I have to do to man up?
I don't want your sympathy either. I hope I did not insinuate otherwise.
I didn't mean this thread to be a podium for all the saints
who have never driven when they've had too much to drink. All I wanted was some real world experience from my DGR brothers who have been through this personally.
Real quick, let's stop thinking about the thousands of innoccent people I didn't kill.

I don't think I'll ever drink again. So drinking and driving is therefore impossible. Do you think this number is going to go up or down?

You have my deepest condolences. My 15 year old niece was recently killed as a passenger in a car with an underage drunk driver. The boy driving lived. My family has since forgiven him, but it took a while.
