People addicted to something will usually use any manipulative tool they can think of to turn it around so they're blameless. Just try to remember that he's not in his right mind. Hope you are able to help him OP, even if you have to get professionals involved. Best of luck to you and your family!

Yeah, I agree with you, alcoholics (as well as people with other addictions) will say absolutely anything to avoid getting help. Unless they actually want help. I hope OP was able to get her dad the help he needed, that's a tough situation.

Apparently everyone in your family enjoys getting wet behind the ears, unfortunately for you your dad does it with his friends Jack, Johnnie, Jim and Jose, not the shower.

Good luck, OP. It seems alcoholics don't get help until they get in trouble with the law and it's easier for the family to get them committed. Addiction also has a root in emotional instability so they need to sort out issues, but this doesn't excuse it or the pain it causes you and your mother. Be strong and never give in to his manipulation. Try to get him help but eventually you and your mother may have to consider leaving. My mother was an alcoholic for years and years, probably longer than my childhood perception realized and she still relapses fifteen years later. Forgiveness is healthier but it doesn't solve anything if It is still going on. Love & peace to you.

A lot of the time with people who have addictions, whether it be drugs, alcohol, etc, THEY have to be the ones who really want to stop and get help. But having support to get through it is important as well, so you guys are doing the best you can do.

My gf told me to get sober or get out. It was a harsh conversation but it needed to happen. Three and a half years later I'm sober and we are still together. My point is, don't give up on him. I wish you and your mom the best of luck.
