Does anybody have a alcoholic family member, and how best it is to deal with them?
my dad really gets on my nerves when hes had a drink, I don't live with him but I swear its getting worst. He's always liked a drink but now i'd say he probably drinks a half to a full bottle of vodka a day, although I cant say exactly as I'm not always here. He does work and I don't think he gets much of a hangover, problem is he has health problems already (most a result from drinking).
He goes through stages when he's had a drink too; happy/silly, angry, moody, sad, then self pity, all over the course of about an hour or two. He becomes all negative, talking about how c**p his life is, etc.....Then the next day he doesnt remember what he did the night before.
I can't stand being with him when hes had a drink, I find myself hating him more and more as a result of having a drink. Hes whole persona changes, basically he becomes a complete d**k, i purposely avoid going to see him in the evening as a result, only comming in the day but even then he has a drink by 12.
Just want to know if other ppl have dealth with this who might be in a similar situation, tried talking to him about it but most of the time hes had a drink anyway, saying nothing wrong with having a drink every now and then.
