My dad is slowly killing himself with booze, cigarettes, and terrible food.
He needs to change. I love him so much and I really don’t want to lose him.
In the past 300 years, only two men in his family have lived past 53, he is one of them. He’s already had a heart attack, he doesn’t have health or life insurance, and it seems like he really just doesn’t care.
Tonight, he had already been drinking when his friends brought him a nice bottle of bourbon, 45.2% alcohol. He drank almost half the bottle without dinner - about 370 ml. Last night he threw up, then went to get more bourbon. I finally took the glass away when he was distracted. It was after 4:00 AM.
He smokes about two packs “on a good day”. I bought him an electronic cigarette but I don’t think he’ll use it.
I can’t stand this! I can’t just let this happen, but I don’t know what to do. He knows how much I care about him and how much I need him. I feel so helpless, he just jokes and says it’s fine and stuff.
I’m so scared, I’m leaving for college soon and I need him to be okay.
Any suggestions or just anything would be greatly appreciated.
