If he keeps this up,and it sounds like he will,getting fired again is soon in coming!You don't have to spend time with a drunken mean ANYONE!where will it end?i think we both know the answer to this!I just celebrated 32 years sober/clean.It is a daily regimen of work,physically,mentally emotionally and spiritually.There are some who will never be able to wrap their head around this,and they die from this insidious disease!Have you ever gone to Al-Anon?what @ your mom?
AA is for the alcoholic,Al-Anon is for the family members of the alcoholic!try a few meetings and listen to what you have in common w/the others there!All questions are welcomed!
Ditto ibizan !!
The people of Al-Anon will bring peace to You and Your Mother. The people there have walked in Your shoes and You walk in Theirs. Everyone there has loved an alcoholic (and been in the depths of despair because of it) and are eager to welcome You, eager to share.
\while your mother may be enabling your father , by staying , you would be enabling your mother to enable your father, if you continue to visit. you see?
please , go to alanon and be able to pass that info first hand to your mother. Maybe then she will be able to help your father , by no longer enabling him, herself. ?
sorry that you and your mom and dad are all suffering so much from alcoholism. I'm an alcoholic with 16 plus years sobriety now. Have faith, that following the right routine will net results. and the first is Alanon.
