An ironic thing for me, the first thing Vizion said in his post was, "Jon is a good man"...my first post where I mentioned my young cousin-in-law, after the judge sentenced him and they took him away, his mom kept saying, "He's a good boy, Bonnie." I said, "I know he is."
Yeah, it's definitely a mistake that good people make all the time, and I have a few friends that have gotten DUI's over the years. I will admit that I drove home a few times I probably shouldn't have when I was younger, but after losing a couple friends who smashed their cars and seeing all the legal problems it can cause I decided it's just not worth it.
I rarely go out to the bar anymore, but when I do I plan ahead and try to get a DD, use public transportation or a shuttle that some bars run, or even just walk home if I go somewhere local. They also have a service out here that will actually come to the bar and drive you and your car home for you. It's not cheap, but it's a lot cheaper than a DUI.
