San Diego, CA
Male - 23 Years Old
I got a d.u.i. when I was 17 years old, as the second semester of my senior year of high school started. So having to deal with those personal issues, the doubt,guilt, depression, regret, court cases pushed pretty hard against my high school life. Inside school, the most stressful part was the peer pressure. It was almost mandatory to go out and find these stupid house parties every weekend, like some badge of pride and the more you would go to, the "cooler" you were. I never cared for them, I never really "had" fun coming home drunk and afraid of being caught, but the peer pressure was overwhelming to be a part of this scene.
