I have been a victim most of my life to alcohol abuse/crimes. Sent my dad to jail twice. But he got out of it by saying he would kill himself. So they sent him to the hospital instead of Jail. He got out the next day. Anyways, alcohol sucks. I hardly ever drink anymore. I want to outgrow that part of my life.

When you grow up too early, like I had to because of my life, it teaches you something you just dont learn unless you go through it. So even though my childhood never really happened. I grew up early, and learned a lot. So it all worked out for the good. I wouldnt be the person that I am today if it wernt for my parents alcohol abuse. sounds bad, but it's true.

I said other as I am trying to reduce the consequences of this in a medium sized UK city :nod:
so I get to see the impact on a variety of people a regular basis =( Some end up in hospital and some end up in court, although the new warnings from police seems to be reducing the level of crime linked to alcohol here. On the spot fines type of thing.

although on a personal level I grew up in Coventry where there was a huge amount of violent crime related to alcohol so I regularly saw glassings. In fact there is a large number of people of a certain age in Cov with glass shaped scars on their faces. There is still violence now but don't think it was quite as explict as the raw violence of the 1970's !
I managed to avoid being a victim of this- although quite close on more than a couple of times
and one of my friends at uni got knocked down and killed by a drunk driver , well to be more acurate knocked down seriously injured went into a coma and then died=(
don't ever drive drunk :nod:

I really admire you for the job you're doing!

The people ending up in hospital thing just cracks me up. Last christmas I tore ligaments in my ankle and went to hospital. I swear, my husband (who was being my walking stick) and I were the only sober people in casualty apart from the people who worked there. The funny this was, I got seen in about 10 minutes, before all the other people waiting who were drunk.
