If He Wants My Respect the Bottle Has to Go.
I love my father, I really do, but he shouldn't drink so much. Several years ago he got laid-off from his job, we lost the brand new house we had just built, we had to move several times, things weren't that great. While my mother and I got proper consouling he just turned to booze. He gets drunk every night, sometimes it's not as bad as others. We fight constantly, he's started to just hit now that I've gotten older. My other family members think I can't handle his criticism, that's not true. I just don't respect him. I'll respect him when we stops drinking.
