How do parents that abuse alcohol effect their spouse and children? I will answer this question throughout my research paper.
The conventionl wisdom is that people who drink only drink to have fun, and that it only hurts the one who drinks in the long run. But this is proven to be wrong, because of studies conducted on students with alcoholic parents.
I have personally witnesses the effect alcohol has on the immediate family, because my family had to suffer through trying to support my father's habit.
