it was only a matter of time. I got a text from my brother this morning asking if I had talked to our dad this weekend. The next text said, 'we have a problem.' My first thought was my mom, so I called my brother. He said he was working and couldn't talk. He just wanted me to call my dad because he 'heard' he got fired.

I call my dad and he's at work. I tell him that I heard he might not have a job anymore. Then he tells me he had an accident Thursday. He's a delivery driver. He says the police were called, they did a PBT because they smelled alcohol on his breath. He wouldn't tell me what he blew, but said it was 'enough.' No OWI arrest, because he was on private property. It happened at a business where he was delivering. Phil said he doesn't understand why he wasn't arrested to be honest. He would have made an arrest.

His management was having a meeting today to decide if he'll be able to keep his job or not. I really hope this is enough to make my dad realize that he needs to stop drinking. He's quit before and can do it again, which I told him today. I just have a feeling that he won't. Even though he admitted to drinking in the morning the day of his accident he STILL says he doesn't have a problem. It's so frustrating.

I'm going to see if he will agree to attending a few AA meetings.

Thanks, sort of what I told my brother. Why are you calling me? There isn't much I can do 3 hours away.

I'm just glad that my dad didn't hurt anyone or himself. Hopefully this is his wake up call and he'll be open to meetings.

Jen,

I am so sorry!

I hope he makes the right decision. I think that this is the last thing you need right now. And you may want to say those exact words to him. Maybe also let him know, you need him to be your pillar of strength for you, Phil and the girls.

Jen....

I have been there, with someone who will not accept their reality. It killed him.

If you wanna talk, just shout. What it took me a lot of time to accept....you cannot fix someone who doesn't want to be fixed, and won't take that effort for themselves.

Oh, hugs, Honey!

I hope that his employer has a "first time offense" policy, that basically forces him to seek treatment to remain employed.
