Want to start trucking but one problem...

First off let me start by saying I have wanted to drive a truck my whole life, and now for the second time I feel the time is right. But as it says in the title I have one problem, I failed a drug test a little over three years ago. You can take it for what you want but honestly it was a big misunderstanding. It was the first drug test I had ever taken and I failed to mention that I had taken an over the counter drug that caused me to fail the test. with all that being said I still got the job I was taking the test for. Now I said for the second time I feel the time is right. Yes I've tried to get a trucking job in the past. I attended Prime's headquarters to take their course. While I was there I was completely honest about that whole situation, which is why I didn't make it through their course. Now after all that I really want to try again at driving a truck but worried that the one mistake in the past is going to mess me up again. Can anyone out there shed some light on the subject and possibly give me some advice before I spend the time and money doing this all over again for nothing.

My Prime Inc Training Journal

Looking forward to hearing about your experience at Prime. I start my training Oct. 3rd. I've read a few other training diaries on Prime, so I already have an idea of what to expect. Always looking to hear more from other people about Prime. Goodluck!!!

Yea you are right I seen the issues as a child growing up without my father always there. I've talked a lot with my dad about all this and basically hes said exactly what you just told me. We sat down and talked a lot here lately my fiance says shes gonna support me completely through all this. I myself understand completely what im up against as far as being away for extended periods of time. Im just doing the best I can to help my fiance understand it all. And again thanks everyone for the helpful advice and information.

Yea I've been reading in that forum a lot in fact I think it was yours Pj that I read just last night. I have to admit it gave me a lot of insight on what its like going through the training program with one of these companies. I've read a few on prime as well. Im not sure which company I want to go with just yet. Im still weighing all my options out. Plus im trying to make sure that when I go to do this that all my bills at home will be covered until I start getting paid again.

Thanks for the advice. If I decide to do this I'm going to do it for two reasons. One will be for me because its a dream for me to do this and secondly I'm going to do this for my family. So the way I look at it I'm not doing this for the wrong reasons. I've been looking at a few companies that offer cdl training like prime and roehl etc. Im not sure which one to choose if I decide to do this. I guess ill just have to read on here about those companies. This looks like a great site to be on with the situation I'm in so hopefully I won't have much trouble finding what I'm looking for.

First off let me say that I have been around trucks my whole life. My father drives trucks, I grew up in them. I've known my whole life that I've wanted to drive a truck for a living. Now here's my problem, I have a small family and I don't want my family to feel like I'm abandoning them to pursue my childhood dream. I have it narrowed down that if I was to go drive I would go with a company that offers company sponsored cdl training. I just need someone to give me some really good advice on my situation.
