my mom is drinking again

she is supposed to be sober. She went to AA meetings for the longest time when she almost crashed the car a couple times and got a few DUIs, and my dad got custody of me. now the custody is split 50/50, but I don't want to have to live back at my dads house full time again, like I had to for a few years while my mom got better (temporarily). my dad is quite fond of lying to the court, and I don't want to have to live with my dad twice as long as I should, like the first time. but then again, my sister is special needs, and I would feel responsible for not doing anything if anything were to happen to her or us. my mom thinks i dont know, but i do. i have for a couple months. I dont want to live at my dads house, but i dont want something bad to happen to me or my sister. I want my mom back :(

I feel bad for you. Decisions like this should not be forced on people your age.

Your mom is a drunk and a bad influence. Stay away from her.

you mother is "sick" right now and wouldn't be able to take care of you right now. You have to what until you mother gets past the problem that she's drinking about. let her sponsor at AA know she is drinking. Maybe he/she can help.

But all my moms problems are over. The divorce is settled, she has a new husband (my stepdad), and she has nothing to worry about. She has been out of AA for like 2 or 3 years. I have had suspicions in that time, but now I am certain.

There is a group for families of alcoholics. I recommend you attend a few meetings. Talk to your mom and say she is putting you in an uncomfortable situation. Remind her you are a kid and she needs to start acting in a responsible way. If everything fails choose you and your sister first. Refuse to get in the car with her if you see her drink or smell liquor on her breath. Unfortunately you cannot always save the ones you love; save yourself. Good luck.
