    I just came upon this website today

    after searching for support groups. Long story short, I got arrested for a DUI exactly last month (1st time offense, no injuries, no felonies). I won't bore you with details of what happened, but I am very uncertain of what the outcome might be. I am scared that I will lose...

    On November 14, 2014 I got my first DU

    and LAST dui I. I am 50 and I never even had a moving violation in my entire life. What an expensive and stupid way to end my streak of good luck. I was out drinking with friends and although I thought I was fine, I obviously had too much too drink. As I tell my story I...

    My mom just got her first "possible dui" she

    didn't take any of the test to see if she was drunk nor the breathalizer. She's gonna plead quilty. What should I expect for her? we're all so scared and don't want her to go to jail. When she got pulled over she was not hurting anyone nor in a wreck.

    I was just found guilty of a felony DUI.

    BAC was a .089 and I had a minor under the age of 15 in the car. My atty suggested I go to trial because he knew he could get the same plea deal if I was found guilty anyways. Well now I'm freaked out. I live in AZ with my 3 children and I don't have any family to help as they...
