Earl, I am so sorry for being "kind of late" in replying to a remark about your father's drinking. When I talk to addicts, I tell them to let go, and let God. Not forgiving keeps you from moving on in your life. You may never forget but you don't have to keep them in your life. Forgiving them doesn't mean that they were right and you were wrong.
I bought 100 books two weeks ago and have 24 left on Someone Stop This Merry-Go-Round; This Alcoholic Family in Crisis. So many people are affected by this disease and relate to the book.
It's wonderful that you moved on, but more importantly, forgiving. It is a illness. It's not the person we hate, it's the disease because it changes them completely. After so many years, they either chose not to stop or can't.
