My mom is an alcoholic, and it pisses me off.

So my mom is an alcoholic, and it really pisses me off. Of course she is in denial, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

I love my mom, but she has a problem. Like I told before our family split up, so we have not a lot of people left. Of course my parents have some close friends, but it’s not like they see them every week.Β My dad has his own company, and really loves his job. He makes crazy ours from 08:00 till 22:00 every day, so my mom is alone all day. When she’s alone, she drinks. She hides the bottles, and my dad told me he finds at least 1 empty bottle of wine a day. My mom has kidney disease, so she shouldn’t be drinking in the first place. The medicines she takes get her totally shitfaced after just 1 glass. Imagine what a whole bottle will do.

When my mom drinks she becomes the most annoying person on the whole planet. Let me sketch it for you.

Mom: Bryan, when will you start your internship?
Me: In 3 weeks!
** Quiet for 2 minutes **
Mom: Bryan, did your internship start yet?
Me: ….. No mom, it starts in about 3 weeks.
** Quiet for 2 minutes **
Mom: Bryan, how is your internship?
Me: (getting really pissed off) It hasn’t started yet!!
** Quiet for 2 minutes **
Mom: Bryan, what about your internship? How is it?
Mom: Wow Bryan, you don’t have to be mad, I was just asking….
** Quiet for 2 minutes **
Mom: Bryan,Β did you know Bryan is starting his internship? (She thinks she’s talking to my little brother)
Me: Mom, I am Bryan
Mom: Oh haha.
** Quiet for 2 minutes **
Mom: Bryan, tell something about your internship
Mom: Why would you say that? I only had 1 glass. **Crying**
Me: …………………………………………………………….

Imagine this, and then replace the **Quiet for 2 minutes** with other questions. She will tell me something about my little brother. Then she will tell it again. And again. I’m literally in full tilt mode after 10 minutes of talking to her.

My mom drinks one glass. Get’s drunk, forgot she already had 1 glass, and takes another glass. Forgot about those 2, get’s another. The most annoying thing is definitely the fact that she’s denying everything. I know this is a sign from addiction, but it’s soooooo frustrating. She won’t talk about it, ever. Not when she’s drunk, not when she’s sober and not when she’s hungover.

I’m so glad I have my own apartment. I feel sorry for my dad and little brother though.

  1. My dad is an alcoholic. He is a super dick too. Yelling and screaming at anyone and everyone. My mom has so much anxiety over his out burst. She has left a few times but always goes back. So stupid.


  2. It is your Dad’s responsibility to get her help. I would suggest that as part of your growth into a mature, young man, you unite with your brother and sit your dad down to explain to him that he needs to take action. The action is talk to her doctor, make a plan with him and then your dad needs to get your mom into rehab. This is a huge adult issue, so think about it.

      • Then he should be ashamed of himself. He knows what he needs to do and if he loves her and his family, he will get her the help she needs or take the steps he needs to take to deal with the situation. I know that folks with an addiction need to help themselves, but often that doesn’t occur until family steps in.

        Now the other thought that crossed my mind is that she may have early stages of dementia. In either case, another impartial doctor needs to examine her and make appropriate recommendations.

        Good luck to you – my heart goes out to you and your family. This is a tough situation.


  3. Freud would say that your problems with girls could be because of your mum πŸ™‚ I know, it’s sad and I’m truly sorry but I couldn’t help myself πŸ™‚ I wish her all the best! Glad that you have some distance to that


  4. your mother is not your issue. either your father gets her assistance or not. it would be healthier for your brother if he left her if he is not going to force her to get help. you need to provide guidance to your brother. a mother like this creates long term damage on a scale and scope you can not fully appreciate unless you work through them with an appropriately educated person or a partner who is exceptionally empathetic.


  5. I can totally relate to this, except that it was my father who was doing the drinking, and man, things used to turn ugly everyday, literally every fucking day, not because we ‘said something’; actually, we were strictly terrified of him, and the uncertainty of the hour, I mean, he could just start beating, or breaking things, and bla bla bla – Just saying.


  6. I’ve had many alcoholics in my life…I don’t judge you or your family for how they deal with it, and I’m not going to try to tell you what to do, I just hope things improve one way or another…
