Help my father stop drinking!
My dad has problems…3 things,
1) He drinks, but not just wine or beer, he drinks gin and burbon, which will get you drunk a lot faster than wine or beer, and this has screwed up his relationship with God.
2) He always has sex on his mind
3) He is rude to my mother
One night he got drunk and called a woman, (my mother was working this night) I was in my room, trying to go to sleep. But I couldn’t….I was having a nightmare Except, my I was awake, and the nightmare was still going on! My father had called a woman and from what I could hear from my room, was telling her he was going to go to her house and have sex with her! Think for a sec, think if your dad said on the phone with someone you don’t know he was going to leave your house and have sex with that woman! IT’S TERRIFYING!!!! The woman also seemed to want to have sex with my father, it’s possible she was an old girlfriend of his. This scarred me for life…Thankfully, my dad fell asleep while talking to the woman. He never did end up going to the womans house.
He tends to get drunk about 2-4 days a week. And he’s terribly rude to my mother. When he gets drunk, all he cares about is sex. He doesn’t care what God wants him to do. In fact, I’m not sure at all what my father believes in! He goes to church, says he’s a Christian, but doesn’t act like one….He swears, he drinks, Who knows when the last time was when he read a Bible! (His Bible next to his bed is incredibly dusty) and he’s addicted to sex! (as I am typing this now I can hear him putting ice into his glass as he refills his glass with burbon) He’s a jerk to my mom, like really! He just yells at her a lot and complains thinking he does everything to run our family (he does about 20 %, which is getting us money) my mom is awesome though how she just sucks it up…I on the other hand tend to fight back at him when he complains to me, and he eventually ends up blaming whatever we are fighting about on my mom. I don’t expect they will divorce, but I can’t guarantee that they won’t divorce. He DOES have “drinking friends”, all of his brothers (2 brothers) drink. But they control their drinking better than my father does. He does tend to sometimes talk about sex on the phone with one of his brothers….And last, he does swear, like a mad man. He swears everywhere. I mean EVERYWHERE. He says the “big” words too. Like the F word, the S, the B, mainly the F….He also gambols…..A lot….He always wants to go to a casino….We’ve lost around 10,000 because of his gamboling….
I’ve prayed to God about all of this. God has answered all my prayers. Except this one. I’m starting to think God may want to help my dad, but through me. But I don’t know what to do….I’m only 13! All my family hates that he drinks. But no one seems to do anything about it. I want to. But I don’t know what to do.
Thank you for reading this. It’s just something I wanted to get off my chest. I’ve told this to people before. And I feel good when I do. I hope someone can give me some advice……Before I have another nightmare…..
