Question Drunk Dad Help - December 21st 2011, 12:16 AM

My dad has been drinking all of his life. I've had depression for awhile and I'm struggling with his drinking. He always yells at me over pointless things and I can't take it anymore. I tried confronting him, but when I did he refused to have anything to do with me for 2 months. When he finally started talking to me he yelled at me for 2hrs straight, and now he acts like everythings normal. He still gets drunk all of the time and yells at me and idk how to handle it! He doesn't act like I think a dad should! Any suggestions for dealing with this?

Unfortunately if he doesn't listen to you, there really is no way to force him to listen, nor force him to change. He runs his own life.

However, I would recommend staying away form him whenever he drinks (which is probably every day). Why do I say this? Because why get yourself upset about something you cant change?

I understand we all want to help others and most importantly help relatives and our elders, but if they don't want to listen, then there really isn't much to do especially around age 13-17.

So I would try to stay away from him as much as possible because your right, he doesn't act like a dad should...

I hope I helped alittle - but I'm always here for you if you need to talk.

Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

That I promise wont be easy. But try t hangout with friends more on the weekends - try to stay in your bedroom alittle and read a book, go for walks after school, do simple things. I'm not saying change your life, but just avoid him alittle. It will be difficult, but you can do it, and it will help you not get upset as much and it will let you be able to live your own life without so much stress from your dad!

Best wishes,
Chris
