My Father Was An Alchoholic.

Pretty much I remember my dad drunk every night. He was in alot of pain from an injury during the vietnam war. Also I do believe my mother didn't help matters any. She and him weren't very affectionate to one another. He loved her but I know she didn't feel the same about him. She looked at me and said I love your father I'm just not in love with your father. Wow was all I could say. Anyway he would mpstly fight with her and my brother. He would occasionally get abusive but not that often. I remember when I was really young he would have flashbacks. It was scary as a child. I would freeze in horror and my brother would grab me and hide me in his room. I had an issue for awhile if anyone would drink around me. I would just think something bad was gong to happen. I have recently killed off that feeling. I just think it's sad when people turn to drinking to escape from reality.
