What a nightmare.

I mean can I los emy job because of this? This is just awful.

unless you have a driving job, it is very unlikely that you will your job! Life will change but it's up to you to decide if that change will be for the better or for the worse. I too knew it was coming and knew I needed to change and it sucked it had to take a dui for me to realize it. Good luck and keep your head up!

I guess I will have a temp drivers licenses for now and need to get this quickly.
I knew it was coming for me too. I guess Drinking and driving is really a numebrs game. But , like you mentioned, I must use this to change for the better.This is really a shock, laying in that prison cell was just awful, like a caged animal. I have to get through this.
