I was. My parents turned to alcohol in the 70's when they lost their job & home and everything just went downhill from there.
I remember it well. They drank together which was really horrendous after a time because it made them both crabby, sarcastic and they argued and fought over everything.
The 5 of us children were living through this the best we could and it is most definitely the reason I do not like alcohol today.
I have an occasional glass of wine or a spritzer but that's it.
I was just wondering how many others out there were raised in an alcoholic situation and how it has had an effect on you today?

My grandpa died when I was a toddler. He had a bad drinking problem. My brother was a bing drinker. I learned from watching him not too drink. Well drink not to drink to excess.
