I've got one. God knows it's hard. I'm just searching for other teens like me... trying to find ways to cope, and trying to learn how to move on past this pain.

It's the story of my life. I feel like every quirk and crazy thing about me can just be explained away by the fact my dad can't do anything without a little liquid courage first. Alcoholics are mean, impulsive, unpredictable, and often violent. You need to know that you have nothing to do with your parent's weakness, nothing they do is ever your fault. You need to stay strong. It doesn't get easier, so you need to let it roll off your back. I'll be here If you ever need someone to talk to.

I know what it's like. Really, I do. Both of my parents are alcoholics, so I can definately relate. As for advice on moving past it, well, I can't really give you that because I'm still trying to move past it myself. However, if you want someone to talk with about it, someone to relate to, I'm here. *Hugs* I know it's so damn hard sometimes, and it can seem like they love the alcohol more than they love you (I've felt this) but it is a disease. They can't just quit, as I'm sure you know, but they probably want to--even if they won't admit it, to themselves or to anyone else.
Like I said, I'm here if you need me.

Yup, heck of a way to live. My parents are now divorced because of my father's alcoholic tendencies or whatever... he was an abusive alcoholic and recently lost his visiting privedeges... I'm here if you need to talk to anyone, just know that you are not alone, and try to stay out of your parent's way when they are like that, could be dangerous... it was for me... Stay safe, okay?!
