    if no discussion about the topic other then just answering the OP's questions, I will close this thread for degenerating into a list thread.

    Out of the 8 people who responded to the topic, only 3 have actually offered an kind of helpful advice. This is a serious topic and should be treated and responded to as such.

    2: What do you if you meet a drunk person?

    Well.. I have the same situation too like you! My dad is just addict! Super-Duper! Believe me... I think my father just learn how to drunk from my grandpa! My mother's father! You know my grandpa still drunk until now! One day we live the city and when we came back, the neighbors were complaining cause grandpa is always DRINKING! They say he almost dont eat breakfast & lunch! What the heck?!? Ok i'll just answer the question..

    1. When my parent's are drunk, i just stay in my room and just listening to the radio! I dont mind them.. Cause when they're drunk, they can hurt people!

    2. When i meet drunk person, i hide as fast as i can that he can't see me! Cause mother says drunk persons can do bad things to you! THEY CAN RAPE YOU!

    3. "Those drinkers should post here! They can explain it to us a lot!"

    4. Ask a doctor about it Joke! Joke! Joke!
    This must be taken care of to remind those drunkers to be ashamed to theirselves cause they are the one each of us talks about!


    One more thing.. Sometimes i feel happy when my grandpa drinks! Cause he is really strict to each of us! So when he drunk, He's very kind to us! Yeehaw!! We also ask him to give us money!(Well he cant remember it anyway) So he does.. I love grandpa when he's drunk, VERY MUCH! But about my father.. Nah.. You cant convince him to pick a money from the wallet! How bad! But note drunk people are very funny
    SHIT MAH' MEN!!

    Only for 10 years then it will significantly decrease if done correctly. Prohibition was repealed to soon to be used as an example.


    On the subject... I have never had to deal with that particular problem. I had friends with similar issues and all I could do was offer my house as somewhere they could come when they needed to escape. All I can suggest is having somewhere to go to when it gets bad. Also find an adult you can trust that you can talk to. If it gets bad enough they can help you know what to do better then we can.

    Re: Drunk Parents


    The only statement in that whole article that suggests that demand or use was higher during times of "banning" is un-cited and thus only conjecture.

    Anti-Prohibition arguments are just arguments by those who wish to use the said item without fear of being caught or condemned by others for breaking the law.

    While true that banning anything will increase the black market sell of said item, it no way increases the use of said item. Even simple logic tells you that something that is "hard" to get your hands on is going to be consumed less (in terms of total consumption of said product over time by the masses) then something that is on every street corner. I have never even seen illegal drugs (aside from pictures) yet I have seen enough alcohol in 1 town to kill everyone in it. Availability without deterrence INCREASES use, not the other way around.

    Mary-Jane use in this country is much much much lower then it would be if "legal". Making something "legal" in many ways suggests the general population’s approval of said item and therefore promotes its use solely by basis of just making it "legal."

    You can argue that "banning" will increase the rate of crime but my argument is “no” it will just change the type of crime. "Trafficking" said product, while still a crime is a "safer" crime then the massive number of DUI's, and impaired vehicle deaths per year. Don’t get me wrong, Trafficking isn’t safe by any means but the deaths related to it are much lower than those associated with the “legal” use of Alcohol.

    Let’s just look at deaths, how many people died from Alcohol in 2000 in the US?

    85,000 and that is just from consuming alcohol, it does not include those who died in motor vehicle incidents. Note that Marijuana is at 0 deaths and All Illicit Drug Use, Direct and Indirect only totals 17,000. Let’s see 17,000 divided by 85,000…that only totals 20% of the alcohol related deaths.

    In 2005 39% (16,885) of all motor vehicle deaths involved Alcohol. As apposed to 18% which involved other drugs (but I might add a majority of those included Alcohol uses in conjunction with the other drugs).


    So yeah like I said:

    4:How should this be taken care of?
    Outlawing alcohol would reduce a vast majority of it.

    It'd depend on how often it happens. If my parent(s) got drunk once a year or something from a Christmas party or whatever, then I'd let it slide because it's nothing serious and doesn't happen regularly. If they got drunk every night without fail, like a serious addiction, or something to that effect, then I'd first try to talk them out of drinking so often, and gradually try to get them out of the addiction, but somehow I don't think that'd work so I'd arrange for them to go into a rehab centre.

    If I was acquainted with them, I'd make sure they got home safely or call their family if I can't. If I wasn't acquainted with them, I'd either leave them alone or call the police for them (just incase they're a danger to themselves and others around them, depending on how seriously drunk they are).

    While it's never happened to me before, having a drunk parent, I hear a lot of stories from friends or even on the evening news about incidents involving drunk people. In my humble opinion, drinking is a sin. Why would you purposefully intake toxins that'll slowly poison your liver? Plus, the stench of alcohol is enough to make me reel, let alone the taste.

    Quote Originally Posted by Renn View Post

    My dad drinks but he's rarely drunk so I can't relate to your situation very well, but I'd advise that if it's that serious, and you can't take care of the situation, given your age (I peeked at your profile =]), then I'd suggest getting another adult involved (a relative or family friend perhaps). You shouldn't have to bare the weight of responsibility for your parents' actions at such a young age.

    I can understand if your mother wants nothing to do with your father anymore, but if it's affecting you and any siblings you may have, then I don't see why she hasn't taken any action before it got this serious. Hasn't she thought of contacting a rehab centre or some sort of improvement program?
