HELP!! this is urgent,i'm worried :-| - March 2nd 2009, 11:08 AM

my dad was and i believe still is an alcoholic.
long story short, in the past he had two seizure's from it and has a bit of liver damage i think.
ok so we had some 'night nurse' stored in the cuboards at home and yesturday i needed some at night because i have tonsilitus and can't sleep well but when me and mum went to get it we couldn't find it and we asked my dad if he had any and he said he had a bit BUT it was all completly gone,so i think he may have had the whole bottle!!! i'm not sure if any of you know but night nurse has alcohol in it and i read the leaflet and it says something like "incase of a overdose, get imediate help even if you feel well because overdose can lead to slow liver damage" (something like that anyway) but it sounds dangerous!!! and night nurse isn't suppose to be used by alcoholics anyway!
i'm really worried and yet again i feel like this is my fault! it always is, i think if i was never born then my dad wouldn't be an alcoholic! what do i do??? i can't talk to him about it because he's really stubborn and he would never get help!! grrr, if something ever happened i would blame myself for the rest of my life!!!
is he gonna die???

it's not your fault your dad's an alcoholic. especially not because you were born (as if you chose to be born)

if he's relapsed, that's his own fault, not yours.

Ask him to take himself to the hospital, just in case?

Relapsed means he drank after a period of not drinking.

Tell him that he should go to hospital, once you've told him your obligation is over

If you love him, then you understand he needs to get healthy and stop drinking. You can't make him stop drinking, and definitely don't approach him about it if you feel like doing so is unsafe. I'm sorry you're stuck in such an icky situation.
