Finding Hope Amidst Multiple DUIs
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol has serious consequences and stiff penalties, particularly if you are unfortunate enough to have multiple DUIs. If you are in this position, you may already have an ignition interlock device on your vehicle and you have probably attended a victim awareness program or DUI school. You are also paying higher premiums on your vehicle insurance because of your driving record. Facing the consequences of DUI can be daunting and depressing.
There is Hope Available
Multiple DUIs have lasting consequences on your future options. With that being said, there is still hope for a brighter future. Be advised that it may take some time to overcome the challenges you are facing because of the DUIs, but in time and with hard work on your part, you may be able to conquer those challenges.
Addressing the multiple DUIs and taking an honest look at why you have them is the first step toward overcoming the problems you are facing. Substance addiction ruins many lives, but there is help available. An honest desire to defeat addiction and seek treatment is foundational to future successes. Until this happens, you may be subject to relapse and the consequences that come with it.
On the other hand, seeking help is only going to make things better. Getting your life back on track is going to take time, but it will be well worth the effort. Your multiple DUIs will stay on your record, but if you work to establish a good track record for yourself, that will make a significant difference in your future options.
Life After Multiple DUIs
One of the first things you will want to do, if you haven’t done so already, is get excellent legal representation. Having the right attorneys may reduce the charges and jail time you are facing. A good attorney will also help you identify options in moving forward.
Sobriety is paramount. You have multiple DUIs for a reason. Now is the time to make an honest commitment to sobriety if you truly want to overcome the challenges you are facing. Seeking treatment may be court ordered, but also realize it is a lifeline to a better future. Along with treatment, find a good support group and turn to trusted family and/or friends who will offer support and encouragement for your sobriety.
There will be things in your life you will need to change. You may have to rethink your social groups if they are not supportive in your quest to stay sober. You may want to take up new hobbies or activities that will divert your focus to more positive endeavors. Identify your triggers and remove them from your life. This can be challenging, but you will be better for it.
