Alcohol is a helluva drug, my Mom's currently in the process of literally drinking herself to death, and completely oblivious and powerless. The only things missing are the Vegas hotel room and hooker, not quite as glamorous as all that.

Enjoy the break, unfortunately you're probably in it for the long haul.

I feel guilty a lot. My two sisters are still in Texas. Being in NC Iím removed from a lot of it. The younger one which is still in HS refuses to live there if he is drinking, so she has been living with the other sister.

It got really bad last year, he and my mom got in a fight, he ran upstairs, shit his door and cranked a round off through the ceiling.

My mom refused to buy him alcohol a while later, so he walked to the store and ended up getting arrested for public intox.

Before rehab last time he seemed like he wanted to get help. But ended up right back where he was. I want him to meet my kid so badly, I remember who he was before the alcohol. Just want that dude back.

We moved back to Texas specifically to be closer to family, and Mom had to practically be begged to come over if there wasn't a gathering where she could drink comfortably. Our son, who is 4, hardly knows her, and it's heartbreaking. He has a better relationship with his grandparents in Russia, who he's visited twice, but sees on Skype just about every day. My brother has two kids slightly younger than Christopher, and it's the same story. She has every reason to be a present grandmother to these 3 young kids, and has to drink instead.

Now that we're back in Sacramento she's put herself in the hospital, and I do wish that I were able to have visited her while she was in there, but I also realize that her progression has nothing to do with where the family she rarely sees lives. I watched her get worse the two years we were there, not better, and she told my brother while in the hospital that she wanted her champagne when she got home. Not at all the patriarch I thought she'd be.

I can tell you from my own personal experience that your Dad is still in there, but he's going to have to be the one to decide he wants a different life. Nobody else, grandkids included, are more important than alcohol, because that's what is disease tells him. One of my greatest sources of pride/peace is to know that my son will never know the type of father I would have been while I was drinking.

I'm going to make a serious post and say thank you to those of you in this thread (and it happens in others) that have shared about your life and family who battle addictions. It's real, and often we feel alone in the struggle with family/friends/self over it. To know that there are others in similar situations is comforting, especially when it helps put the focus on them making a choice to be who/what they are. Good luck and prayers to anyone going through this currently.

Dad went to rehab for alcohol, it was starting to get pretty bad.

Had a 2 week quarantine after the 5 month deployment which leads us to

Baby #1 is due in February, still donít know how the fuck Iím gonna raise a girl. Everything is going well with the pregnancy as far as babyís health. The wife had been sick pretty much the whole time.

Dad got out and relapsed pretty hard. So my mom went, also for alcohol. She got clean, but going back to live with mr dad she is drinking again.

My dad went back. Hopefully they get their shit figured out.

But I get to deuce outta that situation as Iím going to SFAS in a couple days. So I get 21 days off of that



Shameless plug, if yíall have any baby shit you donít need, or if you feel like helpin out on this baby registry here it is http://www.amazon.com/baby-reg/kerry.../23QOP7FAW6XU6
Every little bit helps

Hopefully I can make it back this Christmas to see some of yíall

That guilt can be toxic as hell for you mentally and it’s not baggage worth carrying.
My mother has been on a similar trajectory for the last 15 years and I finally had to just cut all ties in 2017.

Well, shit. I didnít know you needed stuff, but I should have asked. After several garage sales, we finally just took a bunch of stuff that didnít sell and gave it to a charity/resale type place. Iíll make sure we donít do that again without checking with you first. We do have a kickass infant car seat/base with extra base that we could make you a good deal on. Might not make sense with shipping, though. Itís pretty heavy.

Anyway, congrats again, and good luck with everything. Having a little girl is going to rock your world, in a good way.

I'd just like to throw this out there:
I think we might have only met once or twice in passing (I dropped in on one of your infamous house parties back in the day with some of the old schoolers - and you had the handle of Crown in your hand, as expected), but you seem to be a genuinely fucking great dude. I see all the pics on FB of mutual friends coming to visit you out in CO, you're a positive viewpoint here, never name calling, never getting in the weeds (politics, social shit, etc)... I cant think of one time you've been a dick to anyone. No real point here other than thanks for offering Ben all that stuff in the future. Keep being awesome.

Brush it off dude, everything happens for a reason, I missed selection for SERE and was bummed about it but ended up doing a lot of other stuff I wouldn’t have been able to do as SERE.
