3 Ways a DUI Will Destroy Your Career

As if driving under the influence and the chance to injuring or taking a life other than your own isn’t enough to stop you from drinking and driving – here are 3 ways a DUI can destroy or damage your career:

Young marketers having a brainstorming

  1. Suspended license: If your license is suspended and you don’t get an exemption for driving to/from work then you’re forced to take public transportation. Taking the bus is pretty unreliable and you may end up losing your job due to lateness.
  2. Mandatory firing policy: Many employers provide in handbooks and employment contracts that conviction of a crime is grounds for firing. If your employer has that policy, you may lose your job.
  3. Job applications: While some states don’t allow employers to ask about arrests and convictions on job applications, most do. Your DUI will appear in public records and on your driver’s license records.

Social Experiment – Teens and Drunk Drivers

On average, a drunk driver will drive 80 times under the influence before their first arrest. Think about how many times you’ve ridden with a diver who maybe had one drinks too many – and that’s an adult. Teens and young adults don’t know their limit, prone to binge drinking. Your child, maybe even college student, is faced with the decision to ride with someone who has been drinking more often than you would hope.

In this video, we witness american teenagers who are about to drink and drive while others are tested in their ability to say no or get in the car with them –
Millions have died due to drunk drivers believing they have it under control behind the wheel after they’ve had too much to drink. Don’t ride with or let a friend drive drunk.

How Students Can Help with TBI Victims While going to School

With college starting this coming week, what is known as a happy and loving time may be a little shakier when having a family member who is suffering from a TBI. What can you do to make them more comfortable and help out in the recovery process while you’re focusing on school?

  • Recognize stressful situations and cope with them – don’t avoid them.
  • Learn to relax.
  • Learn coping strategies (regular schedules, take breaks, maintain sense of humor)
  • Provide structure for the victim.
  • Provide support in a respectful way.
  • Make time for yourself, and have a helper.

Use this distance to realize that this is a time to be thankful for those around you, be thankful that your family member is a survivor and is gradually getting better, be thankful for the love that is around you and for your health. Understand that you’re just one person. Don’t make yourself feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Don’t feel weak for asking for help.
