As Mr. Green wrote, getting a DUI has little to do with being an alcoholic and a lot more to do with making poor decisions. Now, a second or third DUI and a judge might think you have an alcohol problem. That being written, you should contact a local DUI defense attorney, they can discuss the facts of your case and likely outcomes, you can also discuss what you would be looking for (in terms of punishment) if the case couldn't be reduced or dismissed. A lawyer can also explain the administrative (DMV) side of the case.
This answer is not legal advice, it may not even be relevant to the question answered, it definitely is does not establish an attorney/client relationship.
