Are my parents alcoholics?
This is a two part question
1. Are my parents alcoholics?
2. Would it be disrespectful or me to confront them?
My dad and step mom consume 2–3 bottles of wine per night and get pretty buzzed on a regular basis some nights more then others. They don’t act like idiots or go screaming and yelling they usually just listen to music or watch reality TV. However it is impossible to have a serious conversation with them after 5:00 PM because they won’t remember or can’t make a contribution to the conversation because of their state of mind. I find it a little irresponsible that they get legally drunk every night and it could prevent them from being a serious parent to me or my two other siblings that live with me. For example last week I fractured a bone in my elbow playing hockey around 6:30 PM and I had to drive myself to the ER with one arm because my parents were to drunk to drive. Are they being responsible parents?
