Functioning

Today, I realised that what I had thought was my dad's default state for the past 17 years is actually his drunken state. FML

Over the past 17 years you were never able to smell alcohol on his breath?

if someones having a default state for 17 years, then there's gotta be some kinda of substance abuse behind it......

he must have drunken until you moved out... someone doesn't love :/ sorry pal

of course not, you stupid man. how could she have seen it's not normal when the fml is about her thinking it is normal? i didn't mean to be rude. its an outburst.

Maybe it's that constant exposure thing doc. People don't notice their own home smells because they're always there. Ops father is always drunk, so I guess it's possible she is so used to the smell that she never noticed it until it was gone.

He must just be a bundle of fun at the moment.

"There's that daughter again, pass me that drink."

lol there's also the fact that OP could have been drunk.....

he needs the booze, or else he would probably beat OP for being a shitty daughter. how the **** could you not know if you live with him? uh maybe all the empty liqour or beer bottles? should have been a strong hint.

You can smell vodka. She may not have been able to smell the alcohol if she hasn't been around it and known. I thought this about my dad for years before I realized (substance abuse). Until he got arrested, that is.
