new to this

my dad's drinking didn't affect me until i started to hear my parents fighting at nite...and then after that it seemed like it was all down hill....b/c my mother's not exactly healthy either(different substance)'s clothes were constantly on the lawn....the other kids picked on me....he would go for weeks w/o drinking but when he wanted a beer if he didn't get it my sisters and i went to our rooms...we could always sense his moods coming on....but dad was never as bad as they're in the process of getting a divorce and i think my dad's drinking more...i live an hour and a half's hard trying to make sure my sisters are okay...and making sure my dad's not drowning himself and just in general trying to get thru the relationship w/ my bf whom i live with is affected by this also....and i didn't know where else to turn

Hi Buttercup and welcome!

I'm glad you found our site. Many of us here grew up in alcoholic families and we understand first-hand how it affected you growing up. You aren't alone - we're always here for support. I hope you keep coming back and sharing with us.

Also, check out the ACOA forum on this site for adult children of alcoholics.

Take care and hugs,
