    My parents recently split up

    because my father is an alcoholic. I've been keeping everything in and I don't know how to express my anger or sadness. I don't even know what I feel anymore. I just want to know how others who were in the same boat as me or currently are dealt with this.

    My dad is 2 different people to me,

    the day to day father and the drunk father. You just never know what he's going to do. There's been violence, to the point where I have come between him and my mum before he really did something he could never fix. There's been yelling, where he will wait until my mother...

    Well actually my dad WAS an alcoholic.

    I haven't seen him since I was a little girl and because he never stopped his drinking the alcohol killed his liver and he passed away this January. It was the saddest news of my life.

    Favored Me Over My Sister, Favored Beer Over Me

    When I was younger, I never noticed my dad's addiction. I was his first born, he little minion. I was ALWAYS at his hip. It seemed he loved doing things with me. He would hook up a wagon to the riding lawnmower and pull me and my little sister around in it. He would play...
