"Getting into trouble through to much alcohol"

About: Orkney Alcohol Counselling and Advisory Service

(as a service user),

I kept getting into trouble with the Police at weekends when out drinking with friends. I was drinking far to much mixing my drinks picking fights left right and centre. As a result I have been to court a couple of times and a lot of fixed penalty fines.

My solicitor and I both realized I needed some help and contacted OACAS and did the offender rehabilitation programme. I can see where I had been going wrong and have been out of trouble for seven months now which is the longest it has been for a long time. I want to settle down and get into a relationship and stay out of trouble.

I have reduced my drinking by half when I go out and only go out every now and then. I have taken up darts and have to be sober when playing.
