1. Neglect is abusive.
      Parents who are under the influence are emotionally unavailable, which is neglectful.
      Hangovers are all-consuming events, therefore, creating a secondary level of unavailability.
2. Mood swings and personality changes are dramatically altered by intoxication and coming down.
    Never knowing which face of Mommy or Daddy will meet me when I get home from school.
3. Driving under the influence is life-threatening;   These experiences create a pain body of fear.
    Children who experience or interpret an event as life threatening can develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
4. Being picked up late, being lied to, being embarrassed by parents drunken, disheveled appearance, or slurred words, lowers a child's self-esteem giving them a base feeling of shame and humiliation, which sets up a depressive brain chemistry pattern.

In the state of child development, when a young person is trying to figure out if the world is a safe place.  When they notice that their parent is too fearful, weak, or angry to face life on life's terms,
They believe life is not a safe place, and this starts a pattern of depression.
Could it be that this is what sows the seeds of addiction and dysfunction in children who are born with a blank slate of unlimited potential?
