    I got really drunk last night and totalled my car. Only person I could call was my dad, because the title is in his name. I'm not even pissed about my car, I'm pissed that I didn't die. I'm pissed that I came out without a scratch on me. I wish I was dead because I let my dad down so much, that hurts worse than anything anyone could ever do to me and I don't know what to do.

    If you think you have a problem with alcohol you should look into AA. Did you get in trouble with the law or anything? Be happy that you didn't hurt anyone physically when you were driving drunk.

    I dont have a problem with alchohol at all, I'm not going to drink much anymore after this. No I didn't get in trouble with the law.

    GOOD! Perhaps that's your wake up call. Don't let yourself and you dad down again.

    It's not necessarily the drinking that's bad, it's the drinking and driving part.

    Your young you got drunk you got stupid. It only shows you that booze can break more then you love. Choises create realities, therefore make wise choises so you will enjoy the reality that you live in, and not in the carnage that you are in now. Your dad doesn't really care as much about the car as he is glad that you came out alive, your not enjoying the consequenses of the choises that you made because they are without love 'und alles ist kaput' is a result of that. Of course life will go on and i encourage you to pick up the pieces, be carefull and treat every day as a gift.

    I've felt that way after my accidents. Even if you're not drunk, the experience is just so surreal. I mean to crash your car and come out with no injuries whatsoever, it feels like something's not right. But it's better than being severely hurt and still alive.

    Agreed, accidents can be quite 'degrading' and the only thing that you learn from mistakes is that you shouldn't make them. Pain is all to real and the consequenses can go beyond off that what you can mentally carry.

    Drinking & Driving is just SO wrong. How could you do that? Not only did you total your car you could of very well totalled someone's life if not your own. Wow. I trust you have learned your lesson-next time call a cab, a friend, or better yet, call your DAD when you've been drinking and are too "totalled" to drive. As for your Dad and letting him down, ya, I guess you have. How you atone is for you decide. Time to have a heart-to-heart talk with your Dad if you haven't already. Time to eat crow. I'm sorry if you think I am being harsh and I am happy that nobody was hurt, but please, don't drink and drive again ever...too many people have been killed because of booze and driving...it's just so senseless...IMO

    It's good that you seem to have learned something from this. What got my attention though is: you were so upset over letting your dad down. What if you had ruined or ended somone's life with that drunken accident? Was this even a factor to you, or just your dad's feelings? I've personally been on the receiving end of a driver such as yourself, screwing up both legs for the rest of my life, and I won't elaborate much on my feelings about that (I suppose I'd rather not get banned). But I found it interesting that you gave no mention about the "real" gravity of what you've done, only that your dad was upset. But whatever. It's good that your incident didn't involve anyone but yourself, and that hopefully you won't repeat it in the future.

    Just be thankful you are okay, and that you did not hurt anyone else in the process. Because where I work "Drunk Driving" is an on going process. I have seen teenagers and kids get themselfs killed due to them getting behind the wheel. The thing is, you said you don't have a problem, but if you can't control yourself enough while your drunk not to drive..... I see a problem their. I mean not trying to nag on ya, but maybe it is good you wrecked the car, why do I say this? Because you no longer at the moment have a weapon at your hands when you drink again. It is a lesson that is well learned, especially when you got off so easy. Be happy and thankful you are a live, and believe me when I say this, be happy it was just the car and not someone elses life.

    Feel lucky....a buddy hit a car and killed two kids......that is worse than letting anyone down. He lived and lives with it EVERY day. YOu got lucky and thankfully no one was hurt and nothing on you was hurt except your pride. Your life will be better now...harder since the car was totalled but better.

    But being young,drunk and stupid is absolutely no reason to make excuses about it.
    What you did WAS absolutely stupid and you are incredibly lucky to not have hurt anyone else let alone yourself! You think you let your dad down the way it is now, how do you think he would have felt if you died because of your own stupidity?
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE recognize this as a 'wakeup call' and do something about your problem! Driving while drunk is NEVER a good idea! Don't put your own life in danger and the others on the road with you!
    I'm sorry if that seems a little harsh.. but I lost an aunt last year because she was driving drunk and crossed the center line. Thank the Goddess that the person she hit was okay, unfortunately she wasn't.
