The Whole Town Makes Fun Of This Alcoholic But His Little Daughter Still Loves Him.

Story by Destinee Elizabeth

As everybody knows my dad is literally the town crackhead & if you didn’t know now you do.

He’s 10/10 an alcoholic (was even drunk when i came out of the womb) he’s a true committed drinker.

Everybody makes fun of him or talks crap even i do from time to time because the stuff he does is actual comedy & flabbergasting. what people don’t see about an addict though is that they once did have a life, feelings and a family.

We’ve tried to help him thousands of times, you can lead a horse to water but you CANNOT make them drink and because of his choices this is where he is at.

Although he’s like this he does still have love in his heart and from time to time you can see that, one thing about my father is that he tries, he tries to talk to me, every year for my birthday this man gets me a present, now it might be some doll he found on the street even though i’m 18 and haven’t ever played with dolls but it’s the fact he still tries or even remembers what day i was born.

This picture is the first time he met my son and he cried. he will not be in eden’s life but the fact he even wanted to see eden is a BIG thing for an addict.

So the next time you see an addict on the street and you think they’re just a junkie or a piece of s*it, remember that’s someone’s family, that’s someone’s dad, that’s someone son, that’s someone’s sibling, and they were someone before drugs or alcohol took them over.
