Sorry to be the one breaking it down to you, but your father is not that raging drunk dude to his bad liver, but his liver is failing due to him being a raging alcoholic!
My sympathy. To you, not to him - he sounds like an irresponsible loser. He's got a family, and he drinking himself into oblivion... and an early grave.

You post that on pretty much every FML. At this rate, all of your free time will be spent pretending to nag the invisible man in the sky to sort out a bunch of strangers on the internet.

It must be nice to have absolutely no flaws. How do you stand being around the rest of humanity? The man has a disease, not a character flaw; or a lack of self control. I can't believe that in this day and age, the stigma against alcoholism still exists. The man needs treatment, and support; not condemnation from small minded people like you. I hope that he can get the help he deserves, and needs.
I'd gladly do what I can to help him if OP wants my advice. I've been sober for almost a year now, so this is something I have first hand experience with.

oh fuck you, i guess in all your experience you forgot how deeply and chronically you hurt the people who loved you. having been on the other side of this, yes, an alcoholic needs help. a father also needs to get his shit together and be a father, instead of alienating and scarring his children like that. Just because he has problems doesnt change the fact that he has to be a role model, and this is what he's teaching his children. and even now that he's ruïned his health and shortened his life he just drinks right on, not giving a shit about his family. I've spent too much time around alcoholics, it's unbearable and frustrating.

@Phil my dad is an alcoholic. Despite my mom, brother, and I trying to get him help, he continued to drink. Not every alcoholic is just waiting for their loved ones to save them. Many also just don’t give a f***.

Your dad needs to quit drinking immediately. Not sure if it to the point where he will need a liver transplant but if he’s drinking and he needs one they won’t give it to him.( that at least what happen with my friend with his lung transplant and smoking) either way when your dad is sober you all need to sit down and talk about his health.

Beyond a point, there is no "enabling", there's just an addict unable or unwilling to stop.

My stepkids "got" to watch their father drink himself to death. It's an unpleasant dying, nothing peaceful about it. At the end, pretty much every bit of fluid they put in him leaked out of his liver or kidneys. (the hospital drained 11 liters(!!) of fluid from his abdomen one day) My prayers for peace for the OP and the rest of the family.
