    My mom drinks, and I get really upset. I’m not sure if this has been going on since I was little, but I can now tell when she’s drunk and I hate feeling like the parent.

    WHen I was about 5 or 6, I went camping with my dad. My step family went as well. There was a giant barn where one night there was a party. There was a lot of dancing and music. I was 5, so of course I wanted to dance with my dad, right? So he got extremely drunk, as always, and then when my mom called, he wouldn’t let me talk to her, or her to me. Eventually the police had to come and take him to the station… that’s all I remember from that experience, but there are plenty of others… He still gets drunk all the time and I have begun to not speak to him. He also did not call me on my birthday this year. I have had enough and he tries to talk to me on facebook, but I just gave up. If anyone knows what I can do, then please help me.
