This thread is related to a thread I've posted before about a man who died of liver cancer because of his chronic alcoholism. He has two sons who are also alcoholics and they still seem to be following their father's footsteps even after he died. Their mother is the one who's suffering more right now because she already lost her husband because of alcohol and now she just couldn't contain her two sons from alcohol too. The older son who's working as a gardener spends all of his hard-earned money on alcohol and cigarettes. Plus, he has alcoholic buddies who only make things worse. The younger son has no permanent work and has been going on and off work as a car wash boy. Unlike the older brother, this particular one couldn't seem to control his alcoholism even while at work. So sometimes he would go to work under the influence of alcohol and it frustrates their mother more. Their sister, who's a friend of mine is very open on talking about their family problems with me and she openly shares how worried she is for her mother who absorbs almost every problem they have as a family. I couldn't help but feel for them too because nothing has changed even after their father died.
