Dads an alcoholic - June 25th 2010, 05:35 AM

My dad drinks usually 2 bottles to 4 of wine. I avoid him
now my mom and sis are away for a week and he's taken me to the beach. He smokes pot too. He brought a bong.
After his 3rd bottle and 2nd hit. He's starting to go after me how I quit track and I have to start; that I don't have a choice. He started telling me about how he has fuck up students and that's why I didn't start var on football. Was because I had only a 3.00 and that if I don't get my act together I'm gone.
It's really stressing me out.
My mom and i have confronted him about his addiction.
He quit for a week or two. Now he leaves me alone days at a time and goes to his dealers house.

Help?
I hate being around him.

I'm sorry, that sounds like an awful situation. Alcoholism is a horrible and destructive disease, and is often misunderstood. Some people think of it as regular people drinking a little too much, but it's actually a physical and mental addiction. My father has alcoholism as well, but he's recovering now. My advice to you would be to help him as much as you can. My dad went to multiple rehabilitation clinics over a span of about a year, so don't lose hope and keep trying. Remember, no matter how bad it gets, I'm sure he still loves you very much and wants to beat his sickness. Stick with him, keep helping him, and make sure he knows you and the rest of your family love him and will support him. Hope this helps!

I think your dad is only yelling out you about school casue he is worried about your school & thats the way he exprese it.
I'm really sorry about your dads drinking.
Try to have a talk with him when he's sober about how it's affecting you.
But at first more then liky he's going to be in dinile about it.
Do you have any friends house you can go to during this time?

I'm fine though. 3.00 all semesters. Except Chem I got a D and now a C. There's nothing to get into a fit over you know?
I have. I've even communicated it bluntly "Man the fuck up and quit drinking/smoking. This is immature bullshit."
Not really anymore. My bff is really busy and we rarely hang anymore.

Well if your going to talk to your dad like that, its not going to work out.
It takes time & patitence to really help them.
Be nice to him & try to explain it more to him on to why it's effecting you.
Being so rude about it to him, won't do anything but casue him to drink & yell at you more .
He's just a parent , they just worrie about your grades, be happy he cares.
Why not get to know your bff better now?

Maybe your dad is hiding a problem, a problem that he wants to solo.
Your dad may think that drinking alcohol is one way to escape that problem
and him being quite a nuisance may just be the bad effect of drunkenness.
My dad was once alcoholic too and always get into a quarrel with my mom to the point that they are going to separate but he doesn't drink anymore because of his illnesses.
