Hey, Anastasia. I know things seem hard right now, but running away isn't a solution. Running away in some places is even against the law and can land you in a corrective facility!

It sounds like you're just not sure how to deal, and running seems like the only way. But you can get help for your drinking, and your feelings of helplessness.

Are you in immediate danger, i.e your mother being violent? If so, can you go to a friend or relative's house?

If your mother is simply upset or angry, you might take this as an opportunity to tell her what's been going on, and tell her you need help.

Here's a hotline I've used myself in crisis, the Covenant House NINELINE: 1-800-999-9999. They cover everything from substance abuse, running away, and abusive families. Please give them a call if you are having trouble coping; they're better trained than anyone here. Here's their website, if you feel more comfy contacting them via web:

Hang in there, okay?
