As a personal injury lawyer practicing in Bellingham, Washington, I come across some devastating stories of folks who decided to drink and drive. I've personally represented victims of drunk drivers whose lives were forever changed by someone's selfish decision to operate a car when they couldn't even walk a straight line. We don't live in a world yet where no one chooses to drink and drive, but more and more we find resources and help for people who are trying to do just that. If alcohol is a problem in your life, you need help. Here are some resources to help you get clear of a drinking problem, before you permanently harm someone.
Open Forest - mental health and behavioral resources on how to kick a drinking problem
MADD - Mothers Against Drunk Driving, including the number for a 24-hour victim hotline
Alcoholics Anonymous - where to find a support group to help you quit drinking
