“My father abused alcohol from the earliest childhood memory that I have. I remember him hitting my mother, even when she was pregnant, causing her to miscarry 3 different times. There was even one instance when he tried to shoot her in the chest, but she pushed the gun down and the bullet went into her ankle instead. I have many more horror stories of his drunken rages. Our house and my world always seemed to be in chaos. His tantrums got worse when he was drinking; I have the scars, inside and out to prove it. The day he left I was 15. I remember being to relieved. We all cried for joy. Looking back, I am so sad, that like so many, I had no one to turn to for help. Now, as a parent of two healthy, amazing sons (who knew my story) I am blessed to say they have chosen to not abuse alcohol or anything else. They are why I work with Impact Futures. Get help for yourself or someone you know who has a problem. Save a life.”
