My parents drink.. A LOT?!

Question: My parents drink.. A LOT?
Like said above, my mom and dad drink constantly.. They usually start about 4pm.. They never really get drunk or pass out or anything but yeah. It is just so annoying.. Like right now, only 5pm and my mom is already drinking. I know they are adults, but it still bothers me. I've read how much harm it does to their bodies, and to other people when they DRIVE. When I was younger and couldn't drive yet, my friends parents didn't even want my friends around my house or in a car with them driving. I either had to go to their house or them come over before my parents started drinking.. I want my parents to live long, and to see me do all the things that a person should experience their child doing..I'm 16 and I can't wait to get out of this house. I've tried talking to them even when they aren't drinking but they just don't understand?? Sorry it's so long. /: Thanks in advance for any advice.


I know exactly what you're going through. My parents are the exact same way. They'll drink on the weekdays when they get home from work and on the weekends they'll wake up and start drinking at 10 am. It sucks, I know. I'm 18 and moved out in September of last year and it was one of the best decisions ever. I love my parents very much but it killed me to see them drink so much. All you really can do is talk to them about it. I wish I could tell you something else, but like I said, that's really the only thing you can do. If you ever wanna talk about it or vent or anything, feel free to contact me. Good luck<3

Drinking isn't that bad. I'm your age and I drink (My parents let me). You have it REALLY GOOD! mY DAD IS A DRUNK WHO BEATS ME! Don't be spoiled you are lucky.

A little alcohol help you live longer to dude.
Read this.

Confront them before they start to drink and tell them it hurts you and see how they react. They might think its ok by you and you shouldn't hold it in or it will eat you up alive and you will always have a resentment towards them. Do this ASAP. Good luck. You're a good girl.

Report then for child abuse and or endangering they will stop then oh yeah they are functional alcoholics

That's not alot.

adults do things that aren't good for them
kids do too
just can only watch yourself

well it seems they dont like you but just dont follow their footsteps with your children

I know how you feel, I have a friend who cracks open her first bottle of wine around lunch time and elegantly sips at least two bottles a day.
Keep on talking to your parents, you never know when your concerns might get through to them. You could also tell a friend or relative whom they have respect for to talk to them on your behalf, let them know how their actions are affecting you. You could also leave print outs on how alcohol affects the body lying around where they can see them, post them on the fridge or leave them on the table near where they do their drinking. Good luck honey, don't lose hope.
