"Drowning"

"Drowning"

This image is admittedly over the top. It is my attempt at portraying the vicious cycle that addiction can become - influencing future generations. An adult is drowning inside the oversized cocktail. The young child is drinking from a bottle "just like Mom" while holding the neck of a bottle coming from behind- symbolizing the possibility that the child may become an addict because of early experience and role-modeling.
