My dad's the alcoholic. He always has an argument with my mum when he's drunk. He says so hurtful things to her, I couldn't stand that. I hate it when he does that.
Last month he said: "That wife, who could stand her? Her fingers are all thumbs." and he started yelling at her because she was cleaning the floor! He said that she should do that when he's not at home and she has to stop now, it's rude to do that in front of him.
I just don't get it. I guess other husbands would never complain about their wives doing the cleaning?! He just wanted to watch TV and she was in another room cleaning the floor. I really don't get it.
At the moment, it's a little bit better. He's not drunk every day, and I think he really tries to drink less. But he did that so often and always failed. Whenever my mum tells him to get some serious help, he says he has no problem. He never is able to stay sober for longer than a week.
On the one hand, I get it. Because I know that problem with not admitting, that you need help.
But it's just been this way for far too long. My mum says he drank ever since she met him.
It's a family problem. His father was probably even worse. Always grumpy when sober.
I just wish he would admit his problem, and look for some help. Maybe a therapy or something like that.
