    Abstract

    Alcoholism runs in my mother’s side of the family. My mother’s dad, Tom, was a doctor and a loving father, husband, and grandpa. However, he struggled with addiction and his crux was alcohol. The liquid turned him from a gentle, loving man into sometimes an out of touch father, who would later abandon his family.
