Thanks for the info, unfortunately I have to go get this Drug/ETOH evaluation, It says if they do not find me impaired then I may sit for the exam, IF they DO FIND ME Impaired then I may obtain a license by setting up an agreement with the PHMP, and it can be no public if i qualify( which if the website id right I would). I have not drank since 2003 at my cousins wedding because I remember it was the first time I ever drank in front of my mom( i was 23) and the next day I woke up embarrassed about being drunk in front of her. I started to drink at 16 years old, sipping 40 oz I could only drink a few drinks then I would be done, not drunk just not able to drink. Then i turned 18 and started going to over 18 dance clubs, started to drink more somehow got used to the taste of beer, I did not drink everyday, but for someone who should not have been drinking in the first place, 1 drink was to much. After I turned 21 I thought oh yeah I can go to bars now, but i really did not drink that much at all, I did but not a lot, then like i said at 23 at my cousin wedding i just did not drink anymore after that.
Now 5 years later I understand the board wanting to check out everything because I did get underages and disorderly conduct r/t etoh, but at this point what good is full blown therapy going to do. I don't understand how I can be impaired if i have not drank in 5 years, tobacco in 4 years and never any drugs in my life. I do have alcoholism in my family so a littel extra precation might make sense, but does that make me impaired? But if they find that I am because I drank when I was younger I just have to accept it, do what they say, Like i said I know I was made to be a nurse so gotta do what I gotta do.
