Like I said, I answered all her questions. Told them that yes, I do drink on occasion. They asked about my past. Told her around thriteen years ago, before I had kids and was a teenager I use to drink alot. So now she thinks I should seek counceling and tell them im an alcoholic. I dont belive I should be forced to do something that is not true. Not to mention when I do get anothr job or go back to where I got laid off from no employer is going to allow me to miss so many days of work. I did agree to my son going to counceling and also to go as a family. That alone could be five or more appiontments a month. Its hard enouph for families with two parents. Shes forcing me to do things I am not able or willing to do. Based on her opion not law or just becouse I ticked her off. The threat of having your kids taking away is enouph to get a person to do just about anything, but is it legal for them to push things so far when im not doing anything wrong and im not breaking any laws?
