Um... so I just am gonna say the basic stuff... My dad is a little bit of an alcoholic. By little I mean he's fine for 11 months and then the last month... well, I just get kinda scared because he has a medical condition that alcohol can make worse. He doesn't get violent or anything but he acts a little loopy and it freaks me out because he is almost NEVER like that. He has actually wound up in the hospital once. I hate when people say "Don't worry about it" or "It's not your business" because I WANT to help, but I don't know how. It really scares me because he acts like a very different person when he's like that. I've tried everything, but it seems like only begging works. It is like this every year. Please help!!! I don't know what to do! My mom doesn't even know why he does it and he yells at her and denies it every time she brings it up. I really hate when he acts like this!

I think you should talk to your counselor at your school. Theyll be able to help you if you really need it in a bad moment and theyll find you resources to fix this issue. Good luck honey! xoxo kerra

(Srry that this is so long) My dad is an alcoholic and he wont admit it. he always accuses my mom of having a boyfriend and he always embarrasses me when we have to go to things together as a family like school assemblies and stuff like that. we try to tell him but he never listens. sometimes im scared to go/sleepover over friends houses because im scared that my parents will fight (like argue) but it gets rlly loud and i try not to cry. but mu mom always says " u dont need to hear that, just go in ur room" but i just cant help it i have to get involved. also, i have never told any of my friends and im scared if they come over that my dad will come home after work and be drinking or something. i mean he isnt a constant drinker and he has a good job but he does drink quite often. i cant talk to my friends about it but sometimes they can sense that something is wrong. and i dont want to tell them, but i cant keep this inside forever. plz give me some advice


Hey girly, I know exactly what you're going me. My mom was an alcoholic too, so I know how hard it is. You can't let your dad's problem get in the way of your life anymore than it already is. Go have fun with friends and go to sleepovers. Your mom is right, you shouldn't have to hear them fighting. I know you want to be there to protect your mom, but you have to worry about yourself too. Your mom is an adult and she can handle your dad. You going out isn't going to make anything worse. If anything, it'll make you forget about everything for a few hours, which you definately deserve. Have you tried talking to other relatives or family friends about your dad? Maybe you should talk them and let them know how bad things are getting. They might not realize it.

Also, try talking to your dad when he's sober, just the two of you, and let him know how his actions are affecting the family. I'm sure he loves you guys a lot, so it's best to catch him when you know he hasn't had anything to drink. Maybe right after work, or in the morning. x

Hey girl,

While I've never been to one, I think these meetings are a place for you to talk about how you're feeling and be able to relate to others your age who are going through the same thing!  Good luck chicka! XOXO

We shouldnt even be drinking because we arent even old enough. But people do it at parties I go to and even people who you wouldnt think is drinking may be.

Drinking leads to serious other stuff like drugs and having unprotected sex so we should try and not be tempted by it. And just think what it can be doing to our bodies.

both my dad and cousin drink. my cousin is in rehab, but my dad won't admit he has a problem. He doesn't live wiht me, but I worry about him. It's scary to be little and see your dad drunk. Alcaholism is a big problem in america Frown
