  • I don't know what to do

    I don't really know what to do. my family loves me but they're all alcoholics and they're scary when they're drunk, I'm going to grade 11 and I'm afraid I won't pass, not to mention a teacher who doesn't like me, my friend who isn't anymore lives right across the road. If I were to tell my friends about this they'll tell my family.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. It sounds like home can be a really scary place when your family is drinking. We're located in the USA and our knowledge of helpful community based resources and our understanding of youth in crisis-related laws is limited to the USA. It looks like you may be located in Canada. You may want to check out for more assistance.

    It can be really hard to live with someone who struggles with an addiction to alcohol. We want you to know that you are not alone. If you’d like to talk to other young people who are dealing with friends or family members who have drinking problems you can check out Alateen. You can find more information about this support group, or find a local meeting here:
