Wow...that's tough. Really tough.
It is incredibly difficult to watch a family member with an alcohol problem. The most difficult thing, I think, is the fact that you simply can't help them until they choose to help themselves. In the mean time, you've got to look out for YOU. Is there an Alateen chapter anywhere around, or other youth support group you can reach out to? Your school counselor may be able to point you in a good direction. These places are specialized to help teens in situations like yours, and give them tools they need to get through it with a good head on their shoulders. All you've got to do is ask. Good luck!

well its just that I'm already shy on my own...and like it really embarrasses me to have a friend sleep over..
like I only have one friend, raluca, that sleeps over all the time and like knows that my mom is like this..like I have a younger brother and an older sister my sister is just like really rude to my mom when shes like this which makes it WORSE and my brother is to young to understand so I have to keep him happy and everything I dont know how I could bring myself up to like going to a counsalor or anything my gramma knows..but like nobody seems to DO anything about it and the last time that I told my dad I saw my mom kissing his friend I was like crying and I ended up having to tell my dad that I was overreacting and it was just a little kiss to tell him thanks for making dinner..even if they were like telling eachother they were like hot and everything [ 03-14-2008, 10:23 PM: Message edited by: Stephanie101 ]

Yikes. I second the recommendation to talk to someone at school. A counsellor, or even if there is a teacher you like, they can help. I see you're in Canada. Canada (where I am too!) offers so much support for free. You won't have to pay for anything, and it's all anonymous unless you want them to tell someone. I've been through counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrists, and although it's tough emotionally, I've never had a problem with them doing things I didn't want!
Seek out some help! It's worth it!
