alcoholic parents are the best....

Recommended Posts

so who else got to grow up in a hosehold whith an alcoholic parent? what about an alcoholic parent that didnt work and literally spent everyday for several years, drunk, surviving off a tightly rationed pittance left by a dead relative? who got cigarettes for their birthday? who got the run of the whole house because as long as you didnt drink their shit, they didnt give a fuck what you did? who got slapped just for living? yelled at in front of your friends because they couldnt find a bottle opener? who has younger siblings that grew up pretty much with no parenting, because after the divorce one of them never came around, and the other was, as previously mentioned, drunk in their bedroom? anyone ever get to quit their paper route cause they realized they could make more money by returning the empty bottles and cans that filled the kitchen, breezeway and garage? somebody must have got to spend hours driving around in the rain playing 'whats the most likely route' looking for their parent who decided to walk home from the party they no longer felt like being at? anybody been raised as much by therapists and guidance counselors as they were their parents?

 

anyone?

my moms.

 

Dad used to work night job at a casino, she'd stay home and polish off about 4 bottles of wine.

 

It's not bad, it just gets annoying when you have important conversations and she doesn't remember them the next day.

 

and yes, I have gotten cigarettes for my birthday.

Thats not THAT bad. Shit, it almost sounds like

a GOOD day. I could tell you MANY stories that

would have most of you in tears. You read my

'What women want pt.1" thread. That aint shit.

Stuff like that happens to almost everyone in the

hood. My grandmomma drinks dude. Shit, we feed

our siblings Budweiser instead of breast milk.

My point is, I feel your pain, but it aint half as bad as

what ALOT of other people have to go through on

a daily basis. I realized that when I visted a poorer

country than mine. I thought I had it bad. But these

kids are barefoot, selling chicklets, cmon. Some are

lil hustlers, but some are the real deal, dirt poor kids,

with a dead-end life. So guess what? IT AINT THAT

BAD. Maybe it had an effect on your social life, but

if it bothers you that much, re-evaluate your life, and

think about what I just said. Now youre over 18, and if

you are fucking up, you cant blame anyone but yourself.

Holmes.

Im out.

P.S. I could tell you about my problemas, and life

but I dont want to make you cry. :(

"alcoholism" is not an inability to hold your liquor so to speak, it is a chemical and psychological condition. its been found that 'alcoholics' tend to break down the components of alcohol differently from those that are not considered 'alcoholics.' obviously its not an exact science, and the lines get fairly blurry, but your mom acting like a moron has nothing to do with the length and amount she drinks. infact, most 'serious' alcoholics are the ones that can hold it, that you dont necessarily notice as having a problem. the ones that dance with lamp shades on their head usually only suffer from a severe case of the 'dumb as fucks.'

when you drink, and drink alot....and for a long time, arent you suppost to get better at holding that shit and growing a tolerance for it

 

that actually is only true part of the time, when an alcoholic truly 'rounds the bend' their tolerance decreases significantly... as the body and the kidneys reject the alcohol and process it much slower... this is why the classic street bum often can afford only 2 or 3 bottles of wine a week but they are still always hammered...

your moms problem isnt that she cant drink alot, its that she cant drink alot and not act like a fucking retard (no offense.) technicly, that would pretty much catagorize her as an alcoholic to some degree. an inability to control yourself when drunk is a pretty cut and dried sign. which means if you only drink twice a year, but each time you start fights, break shit and get completely out of hand, you still have a problem. as far as your mom drinking forever and still acting like that, hey, i dont know what to tell you, she needs a bit of therapy to excercise those demons of hers.... i would assume that she manifests that same belligerence in other manners as well.

 

understand i wasnt trying to put your mom down personaly, obviously i dont know anything about her, just trying to explain the situation as simply as possible...

My mom and I just basically ended our "relationship" two days after christmas..Have you ever met a person..who can act normal..and the next second..thier eyes literally change..and you can see the insaneness in them? the dark corners they krept fromm growing up..that they were constantly shoving you into? Im not an expert on alcoholic parents..but I know a few of the ones who let their fists fly...My big question seeking is...arent you happy you can sit back and relise..this is not..what your goal is to be? Winter in general is hard..so much reflection...and a shit load of gil scott heron albums.....but man..im just so thankful..Im not blind to the patterns of family..seems like abuse is bred..and every blue moon..one child is born..and they are so determined to break that pattern..so next time you come on 12 oz..talking about waking up in the morning with a pistol on your keyboard..with no memory of how it got there.....etc etc...
