As of 2:00 this afternoon, I am officially released from supervised probation from my DUI. Meaning that I don't have to call in to a phone number every single day to see if my number is called to go in for random drug and alcohol testing. I don't have to go to any more meetings with my probation officer. And everything is paid in full.
Now I am still on what's considered court probation. Meaning that if I fail my interlock device (which I still have until November) then I go back to court, or if I get any new charges then I go back to court. This is through November. When (not if) November comes along and I haven't failed my interlock (since I won't) and I haven't had any new charges (which I won't) then I'll be free and clear of everything. But from now until then, I don't have to call in everyday. It seems like such a small thing, but when you have to pick up your phone and dial a phone number every single day, it gets old. And then if your number is called, having to find the time to go in there and test during lunch at work or whenever, it gets hard. But I'm done with it!
Honestly, it has nothing to do with the fact of drinking vs not drinking. It's about control. I am now not under anyone else's control. I do not have to report to anyone but myself. And that's a very good feeling.
