Can you overcome the consequences of a DUI conviction?

If you have been convicted of a DUI offense in Missouri, chances are your life has been turned upside-down. While you are coping with the legal consequences of your actions, you may have also lost the trust of your family, friends and employer. Rebuilding your reputation and overcoming the stigma of driving drunk is going to take you some time as you show the people you care about that you are committed to implementing a lifestyle change. 

As you begin tackling the consequences of your poor decision, there are several things that you can do to facilitate the process of overcoming the difficult circumstances you are currently in. According to USA Today, some of the things you can do include the following:

  • Consider participating in a rehab program where you can have the support of other individuals who are going through a similar situation. You can also have the help of educated professionals who can provide you with advice and guidance as you work to overcome your weaknesses. 
  • Show remorse for your actions and apologize to anyone who you may have affected by your decision to drive under the influence. 
  • Rely on the support of family and friends who care about you and your wellbeing. Accept their advice and show effort in overcoming the consequences of your actions. 
  • Spend time doing things you enjoy or take up a new hobby. This may be a healthy and productive way to get your mind off your current situation while doing something that encourages creativity and enjoyment.
