Answer by Dave
My dad has been an alcoholic for pretty much his whole life. He suffers from anxiety/depression, had a pretty rough child mood but refuses to get some professional help, instead he drinks his problems away. He works full-time but after hours, all he does is drink. I’m 24 and my dad is about 56 i think.
