What Do I Do About My Family??

Question by Anonymous T: What do I do about my family??
My dad is a pretty deep alcoholic… and my sister does, not a lot, but a fair amount (that i know of) of drugs, and she always comes home high or drunk. I now have to live in an apartment with my father, because he can’t make the house payments we need. He has a good job, and he is good at it. My dad makes maybe 3.1 to 5.4 g’s a month (commission)

idk. i guess im just startin to get depressed with it. I’m independent, meaning i do all my school work by myself, and until recently i have maintained at least a 3.7 avg, but now i have a 3.2

im a freshman, and i guess they all are affecting me, but im not to sure. I love my family, and i dont want to turn either of them in, but im thinkin about callin my dads brother and doing an “intervention” with him to see if we can get him into AA meetings… my dads a good guy too. he fought for 4 years with the court for custody over me, and he won. cost him a lot. im thinking that maybe all that stress caused him to drink more… does anyone hav
e any suggestions?

im 15, a freshman, a guy, pretty popular, but not to popular.

but thanks to this apartment thing… im to afraid to have friends over, and its making me anti-social. can anyone help??
