Original artwork description:

'I didn' t realise she was an alcoholic, not really. Not until I was 19 and living far away from her. Growing up it was completely normal for her to drink every night, i'd even be her little helper and fix her a drink. Infact we all did, me and and the rest of the kids. And never once did I question it. I thought everybody's parents drank every night, i thought everyones parents decided they would stop for a while, drink some ginger beer or soda in a wine glass as a replacement and then be back to drinking again in the same day or the next and I thought everybodys parents would say 'well its 5 o' clock somewhere' and open a bottle of spirits. It never seemed like she had a problem because she wasnt laying on the floor in her own vomit every night (although some nights yes) I later learned its called being a functioning alcoholic. The thought that she was an alcoholic honestly never crossed my mind until i was gone, out of the house, living on my own and i wasn't drinking every night because I didn't want/need to.
