My parents are killing themselves and me

My mum has just recently recovered from cancer. But there is every possibility that it could return and the second time round would be harder to cure. She is weak and prone to illness because her immune system is so low.

So yeah- my mums health worries me a lot. But she doesn't do herself any favours. She is an alcoholic but is in denial. Although she only drinks half a bottle of wine a night (probably a meagre amount in comparison to other people), this daily routine is enough to trigger off a kind of switch in her brain. She becomes hostile, argumentative and every evening ends in slamming doors, tears and sobbing. I can see that she is severely depressed and i don't know how i can help her. She tells us she hates us and I feel like screaming at her but then feel so much guilt because I know she just feels like no one understands what she is going through. I don't know how to deal with the situation.

So thats my mum. My dad is also an alcoholic (it seems to run in the family :/ ) He is overweight and our local doctor recently put him on a diet plan because we were all concerned for his health. This diet includes cutting out all alcohol. He gets very obsessive with things- he goes out cycling all night in the dark. When he gets home he is usually injured, bleeding, scuffed. I can tell he's had a lot to drink. We had all thought he'd given it up, but now he uses the excercise as an excuse to get off his face.
He gets violent, abusive, hostile. Starts pacing around the house, laughing manically, talking in jibberish. If anyone intervenes, it all ends in violence. Usually directed at my mother. Sometimes the police have been called. Sometimes I'll catch a glimpse of bruises over my mother's stomach or back. I've grown up watching this kind of behaiviour all my life so a used to it, but it still scares me and hurts me deeply.

I just wish I could tell my parents how much they are damaging me. I'm always worrying about them. They don't seem to realise how their actions are not only hurting their own bodies but me also. Is it normal for a teenager to have to put up with so much from their parents? Is there anyone who can help them as well as me?
Is anyone else going through similar problems with their parents?
It would really help me to know I'm not alone.
