find a alanon group, dunno if ive spelled it right, but its a group for the people, spouse and children, who are affected by someones alcholism. the others there will have better suggestions. is it possable he is drinking to avoid remembering the past which he still does in his dreams? i wonder if he is aware he is yelling. i agree some caution might be appropiate.

Don't rush into telling him or confronting him. You haven't mentioned if you have a family, and where they might live. You haven't mentioned your own age, either. If you dad yells the way you say he does, he may have an anger problem. He is already an alcoholic, and there's no doubt about that. Do you know a priest, minister or rabbi you can talk to? You need help in approaching this problem. See what other adults you might talk to, and then come back here and give us your status. It's possible you may have to live with the problem for a while. If you confront Dad and he gets angry, he may make it harder on you, or even turn you out of the house. You haven't mentioned if you have long range plans, or even if you're a young man or a young woman. Are you engaged to be married? Do you plan to go to college, or go away to college, or join the armed services? Use caution, find out what your options are, and report back here. Good luck.

Talk to him when he is sober. Tell him that he can't come home drunk everyday.. Since he is drunk he doesn't know what he does in that state. Better you make him understand. I'm sure he'll listen to you :) If not, ask any other elder whom he'll listen to.
