Ok, before telling you the main problem I should make a summary of what happened until now, thanks for the patience.
Before I was born, my father had a serious problem with alcohol, he was an alcoholic, always at the bar without worrying about how he was dressed or clean, he rarely took a shower. But my mother never gave up on him, and they worked it out together to make him stop drinking, and he did. He went for years in this group of alcoholics with other people, and I remember going there sometimes when I was little, but I never knew why, only now I know.
Well, long story short. After years he returned to drink: at first it was just in the evening before coming home, but it’s been already 5 years since he began again this bad habit, and for us it’s not unusual to see him drank even in the morning. The problem is that when he is sober he is not aware of his issue, and his character is slowly becoming worse. He is dirty, he is always nervous, and I know that he has already a bad character (he is terribly egocentric) but drinking makes him even more touchy (this morning we had a little discussion, and when I returned home he was drunk). My mum doesn’t believe him anymore, so she never give him money or things to do, also he stopped working, and while we’re having a bad period with financial problems, he doesn’t do anything, he just watch tv or sleep.
What should I do?
I admit it, at first I really hated him when he was drunk, so each time he returned home after drinking I never faced him, or I purposely quarreled with him. But I quickly changed, I wanted to accept him, and me and my brother were the only ones in my family that talked to him even when he was drunk, but as I said, things are getting more complicated. He became ill, and even our doctor said to him to do something about his problem, but he doesn’t. He doesn’t work, he doesn’t help us out, he always shut himself in his room, and when he comes out to talk, he always quarrel. I want to help him, but I don’t know what should I do. He’s already 60, and he really has a bad temper.
Thanks for reading this, I really hope that you can help me to solve this problem, thanks..
