Today, as usual, my mom got shitfaced and started berating me for something. This time, it was for missing a therapy appointment. Not only am I unable to drive, it was her appointment. For her alcoholism. FML

Well if she's the type to yell at & berate people when she's drunk, hiding the bottles would probably just make her violent.

That really sucks.. Try not to take anything she says to heart when she's drunk. Maybe try and talk to her therapist the next time you see him/her about what happened.


I have zero patience with the excuse "it's just the booze talking" or similar things. The only time being intoxicated should absolve one of responsibility is if it was unknowing or unwilling. For example, if someone spiked your drink, or your doctor neglected to inform you of potential intoxicating side effects. If you willingly choose to get drunk, you are 100% responsible for your actions.

This is probably the time when you should go through the house and break every bottle of alcohol, and tell her to get her shit together.

Sometimes it takes tough love for someone to realize how deep they have gone.
