First of all, I am 21 and am legally able to drink.
I don't drink often, and I go out maybe once a week, maybe twice a week tops, but more likely like, every other week.
I want to be able to have some alcohol at home, so that maybe I can have a drink and read, or write or just relax with a gin and tonic, or whatever. My intent is not to get drunk every night, but to just relax.
My parents drink and they know I drink- that part isn't a big deal.
However, for my birthday, my brother bought me a bottle of Gin that I kept in the cabinet in the kitchen. I didn't end up having much of it, but now its almost all gone- because my father has been drinking it.
I want to hide my bottles now so he can't get to them, because he will, and he will drink it.
I don't want to just put it in my closet and have them find it, because they would then be convinced I have a problem.
Im condidering getting a fancy hatbox type thing (you can get oblong type ones) and stashing it in there and putting it under my bed or in my closet.
Has anyone else had to do this and do you have any ideas?

Well honestly I keep my drinks in my room. They are in my closet. I honestly didn't care if they thought I had a problem because I know I obviously don't XD. But anyway, hiding them is still risking you getting caught hiding it regardless of how good of a spot you put it in. You can ask him not to drink it? That's probably your best bet.
Also drinking doesn't go well with reading... well... actually anything that requires comprehension of any kind doesn't go well with drinking, haha.0
