It's sad when you're only 16 and on a website like this. Question: Is there a point as a teenager where you should just give up and let the adults deal with an alcoholic parent? I want to help, but deep down I'm realistic and know that me intervening doesn't do anything. Today, according to my mother, her ex-husband was drinking a full starbucks cup of hard liquor while watching my brother at a baseball practice (after "forgetting" to pick him up for said practice) when he got punched by one of my brother's teamate's dads because the weekend before, he had been inappropriate with the guy's wife. I've seen that action before, my dad has never been in control of his drinking for my 16 years on earth. I'm thinking that I should just turn myself off to helping him and let him deal with the consequences on his own. Any imput on what I should do? His drinking ruined my mother's life and me and my brothers' childhoods and I'm sick of hearing about it and thinking about it.
