You have a disease called Alcoholism. Since it is your 3rd the court is probably going to request that you go to inpatient rehab in lieu of jail. Accept the help and when you get out go to meetings, get a sponsor, do service and stay away from alcohol. Just face it alcohol is not for you. It is not the end of the world. God had this happen to you so that you can get the help that you need and have a great life. When you look back at this when you are older you are going to be thankful that it happened when you were young.

It's not how many times you fall down that counts it's how many times you get back up.

Stay strong. You can do this..

take a stand and deal with it.. face up to it, say you ****** up, you're going to change, and mean it this time. Join AA and stick to the program.. you can't change the past, but you can control the future... Only you can do that for yourself. People see you make a stand and change your life around will think differently about you, but the most important thing is you will feel much better about yourself. Be healthier, and be able to live a more normal life.. this is your chance to prove to yourself and everyone else.. enough is enough and it's time to get clean
