dad...kinda long - July 24th 2009, 02:21 AM

not sure if this goes here or in substance...

my dad drinks wine everyday starting around 10 am. and falls asleep with a glass of wine next to his bed.

i was hospitalized for self injury and eating disorder two years ago. while in the hospital i confronted my dad about his drinking problem. of course he denied it. but my mom made him leave until he stopped drinking. so he did. about a month later he started again.

hes been doing this since i can remember. and he is a VERY mean drunk.

no one really seems like they care anymore though. we still receive huge shipments of wine to just add to my dads collection. no one stops him. my mom will even poor him a glass at dinner or offer the rest of hers too him.

i know she doesnt like it when he drinks and i know she doesnt trust him.

i really have NO IDEA why i am writing about this right now. i am not currently upset or anything. but i thought id get some opinions i guess.

he is 74 and so stubborn. im leaving for college next year and my brother is going to boarding school. but i am still kind of scared for my mom. i really dont want to cause drama by bringing it up.

hes just so old and so into i dont think he will ever stop.

i is one person i really hate. and i hate to hate him. but i do. obviously there is love somewhere because he is my dad. but hes just so mean and nasty.

Well, since you have already talked to your dad about it, and he only denied it, you should talk to your mom. Thats what i would do. Try and firgure out how she feels about it, tell her how you feel, and see if maybe the two of you can get him to at least do it less often later down the road.

Something like this takes a lot of time, unfortunately.
