An Accident That Changed My Life
by Nadia Luger
I'd like to tell you about an accident that changed my life.
I'm a single mom of 2 kids, age 33. I got into a car accident last year because I had alcohol in my system and fell asleep behind the wheel.
I ran a red light and an SUV hit me causing the guy to have injuries to his ankle.
I don't remember the accident at all due to the fact that I was hit on the side of my head, but I do remember waking up in the hospital.
To make a long story short my mother had told me, "Daughter of mine, stop going out on the weekends and drinking." Of course I never listened until my accident.
Since that accident I wish I could go back and change everything about how I was living my life. I try to tell my story to people that drink and drive, and they wont listen.
TAKE A CAB or have a driver that's not drinking, please. Listen to your family and friends that try to advise you. Don't ignore the signs.
MY life now involves God and my children. Never in my life will I drink and drive - not a single glass, not even a sip...
I don't drink anymore and I'm trying to send the message to other people about what I have been through and what I have put the men I hit through.
... PLEASE be responsible. It's never too late... And I pray every night that this family that I put through this will forgive me one day..
Please pass the message and try to advise one another. I wish they would put the breathalyzer test in every car. If that was to happen there would be no accidents because no cars would start if someone had alcohol in their system.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your heartbreaking story. I'm glad to hear that in spite of the injury that resulted from your accident, that there was no loss of life and that it caused you to change.
Many people refuse to change, even when tragedy strikes and they repeat their actions causing even more devastation.
I'm glad to hear that you are developing a relationship with God
and that you have stopped drinking altogether. Nothing good comes of alcohol, in my opinion.
I hope your story will touch the heart of others so that they will think twice about drinking and driving. Thanks again for posting it.
