I got mad at a cop who stopped me for drunken driving

Years ago I had anger issues. Getting drunk when angry is not a good idea. I got in the car and I was so drunk the cops stopped me. I was taken to jail and my car impounded. I at the time was so mad I literally could have killed the police officer.

I paid the fine and of course, I had to buy SR 22 insurance and I was a bitter angry man.

Then reality set in. I quit drinking and about a week later the anger went away. I was a bit angry at myself for what I had done and the way I felt. The whole thing was my fault and I accepted the responsibility.

The feeling was a good one and I decided to not drink anymore. Never. I'm grateful no one was killed or injured by me. I'm grateful to the police officers that took me off the road.

After seven years I was able to apply for cheaper insurance.

The moral of my story is this. When you do something stupid blame yourself and not blame anyone else.
