@shootznladrz89:  it’s not bad form, but alcoholics aren’t known for their concern for others, and sometimes the one thing you tell them not to do wil be the one thing they are sure to do. 

So, it’s a risk. Also, most alcoholic families don’t respond the way youd think they would, so don’t be surprised if you get black balled for daring to speak the truth about his behavior. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it, just know what you’re taking on. 

So sorry you and FI are going through this, ESP before he deploys. 🙁

@shootznladrz89:  Oh sweetie 🙁  What a tough situation.  I’m so sorry you’re going through this.

Think of it this way, though:  What do you have to lose?  If your FI is thinking of cutting ties anyway, and the rest of the family has essentially written him off, you may as well give this heart to heart a chance.  I’d suggest calling him before heading over to assess whether or not he’s sober.  Hopefully, thinking about the situation his son is going to be in, he’ll at least listen to what you’re saying and understand where you’re coming from.

Good luck!
