Alcoholic Father Watch
the thing is I am his only child, he doesnt have a girlfriend/wife or many friends really. I just dont know what to do because he wont even admit to the problem. When I brought it up today he became really aggressive (not violent but aggressively behavious) when he is usually really calm and gentle and i have noticed this aggressive behaviour becoming more and more frequent. He just says "Im bored" and "you dont know what ive been through" even though he wont tell me what hes been through. He is always saying that he knows he drinks but thats just him and he is ok. But I just feel like these are all excuses for his drinking and that there are serious health problems.
I know this isnt that big a deal because he isnt violent or anything and a lot of people have a lot worse at home. I just feel really helpless and upset because I dont know what to do and I feel like it is all on my shoulders to. Is there anything I should go about doing or anything I can do to try and control his drinking.
Alternatively, you can try and solve the cause of his problem which has caused the alcoholism. Although that is difficult, try and get help from family / professionals.
