Who's a bigger failure to there family?
The ANswer is: Jshawks!!!!
Stop beating yourself up. I've said before if I needed parenting advice I would ask you first.
This. We don't know everything about your situation, but beating yourself up isn't going to fix anything.
Sine Missione -- Never be a spectator for unfairness or stupidity, argue for arguments sake; the grave will give plenty of time for silence.
Yeah, what Misty and Der said. You're just drunk and emotional. You're a good dad and being way too critical of yourself. Your boys love you and you love them.
Thanks guys. It has been an emotional night. I have not handled it well. I'm sorry for any drama I brought to the board. Shit is so crazy at my place tonight, that I haven't responded well. I'm sorry for that. I love each and every one of you. I mean that. This place is my fortress of solitude!
We all need to vent, my man. No need to apologize.
It's not often I like to use celebrity/athlete slogans, but Tyler Sash's seems to fit this right now. GBNB - Get better, not bitter. At this point maybe it would be best for you to go tell your kids again that you love them and just go to sleep. Talk to them tomorrow when you're sober.
They know that I love them...and both of their g/fs are spending the night with them, so I don't think that I will be busting in giving any speeches to them tonight.
I just wish that I hadn't had to tell them the truth tonight. It was a long time coming, but it was painful none the less.
Hell, they're 16 and 18. They don't care that you drink, they just care that you let them bang their girls under your roof.
I love you buddy, but that's not the problem. Word is now guaranteed to get back to my parents, my ex wife, my grandmother and aunt, all of who will make my life a living hell for this discovery!
I'm just trying to add a little levity to make you laugh. I know you've said before that if your parents found out you were drinking again that it would hurt them.
We're all here for ya, though.
Thanks buddy. It has been a hard night. I continue to get drunk because now that the cat is out of the bag I can't help myself and am compelled to drink on.
Well, I've been cautious to not use this with you tonight, but
I'll even go to this one
I have come out of the closet so to speak, I am a drunk and I will have a SHOT!
I'll have another shot. But I'm only doing it for you.
I always knew you were gna come out the closest pops
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
I think that I know how to handle this! It has come to me like a message from above! I am the Godfather!
Pops is stoned and thinking outside the box.
i say this as someone who hasn't gotten to the thread (if it exists) to know what drama is going on....but here goes.
i would say "who gives a flying eff what the ex wife thinks". she is an ex for a reason, and unless her kids are in harm because, then her opinion shouldn't mean jack. but maybe that is not how it works with exes.......

Thanks buddy, but it isn't about the ex wife. I could really give a shit less what she thinks. It is more about my kids and my parents. They have have had to deal with my drama in the past and I just wish that I hadn't done what I did to put them through it again.
well, you threw the ex on your list...and my first thought was, she is an ex for a reason.
hope you are alright, js
Their. Not there. Can't even do that right...
