"One type of alcoholic is the belligerent
type who is verbally abusive and is consistently looking for an

of verbal and emotional abuse." I think this relates to Jeannettes dad because he is constanlty angry when he is drunk and he is causing problems. One example is on Christmas when the whole family was very excited about their new tree and decorations, and the dad knocked it down and it caught on fire.
