In Real Dad, ASHLEY talks to her Father about his alcohol addiction and how she wishes he would quit drinking and start a new chapter in his life.
ASHLEY: Dad, can I talk to you about something?…I don’t know how to put this exactly, but I’m wondering if maybe you could listen to me about – something that’s-that’s been on my mind.
Well I want you to stop drinking. Listen, please, don’t just brush this off…this is important, you are changing Dad, I don’t like the person you are becoming, I want my real Dad back. You know, the Dad who is charming, sensitive…the one who can pick up his guitar again and play better than most guitarists out there today…you’re a great man, Dad. I want you to give your life the importance it deserves, to give us, your family, the importance we deserve. We understand that you work hard and we don’t take it for granted one bit. But, when you drink, you become aggravated, selfish and rude…you lack charm and patience- you lack all the great things about you.
This isn’t about age! That’s a lame excuse too many hide behind, every day is a chance for a new beginning, for all of us. None of us will ever know when our last day will be, that’s why I want you back…I want you back Dad, give it up will you, give up the drinking, please.
