I really don't know what to do.  My main concern is my sister's safety.  I think I should be there in case anything else happens but I know that is impossible because I have school.  I remember what he is like and she was too young to remember.  I'm not typing this for advice -- I know we will have to confront him on this eventually -- I just needed to vent.

aw, sweetie, I am so sorry. That is a really scary, situation, I know. I have been there, on both sides (although not as a parent myself, thank the Gods). Losing your sobriety after a long time is really a terrible feeling, and your dad must really be in the shit right now. A couple of suggestions...if he was/is in AA, and you know his sponsor, call him/her if you can. Talk to your mother. Talk to your sister. It is really important that the rest of the family is aware of what is going on and working together to support each other, as much as possible. If you want prayers and energy, feel free to ask.

Goddess grant me:
  The power of Water,
  to accept with ease & grace what I cannot change.

  The power of Fire,
  for the energy & courage to change the things I can.

  The power of Air,
  for the ability and wisdom to know the difference.

  And the power of Earth,
  for the strength to continue my path.
