Dad's legacy

Alcohol has never, and will never help me. There are many things my father has taught me unintentionally. He drinks heavily to escape the things he dislikes, which is something that makes me angry, as I can honestly say that I cannot clearly picture what my dad looks like when sober. As well as this, he works a lot, so I usually only briefly see him in the mornings before school and sometimes on weekends. This is a shame as my dad is genuinely a champion. Drinking is a problem, but another lesson he is teaching me is that there are no positives of smoking. It makes you weaker, shortens your life and costs a fortune, plus it limits your social ability. He is not telling me what not to do, he is showing me, and it is helping more than anything else ever could. He can't change his ways now, he's gone past the point of return. But it's not too late to save me. The day I smoke or drink excessively will be the day I lose faith in myself.
