  • You better get your act together or I'm leaving you and bringing Tommy with me!
  • You wouldn't!
  • Eh, who cares if Jessica is mad? I deserve this after a long hard day.
  • Many men would leave work and go to a bar before heading home. At the bars, they would drink alcohol so extensively, that they would become dangerously intoxicated.
  • Yeah, you tell her!
  • Shut up you lousy woman!
  • Many men and some women became abusive towards their families and loved ones while they were intoxicated.
  • Stop it! You're scaring Tommy!
  • Families had no choice but to kick out their intoxicated loved ones for fear the abuse would be permenant. 
  • Please Jessica! You can't do this! I'm sorry!
  • I have to. This is what's best for me and Tommy, since you've become dangerous.
  • By 1833, there were 6,000 societies strengthening the Temperance Movement in the U.S. Abused families joined the protests in hopes of stopping alcohol abuse.
  • There is an easy solution to stop the abuse.
  • Ban alcohol!
  • We don't deserve abuse!
  • The Temperance Movement made a temporary change by ratifying the 18th Amendment in 1919, which banned intoxicating liquors until 1933, when the 21st Amendment ended the ban. By the mid-1800s, the American Temperance Movement Society, a group against alcohol abuse, had grown to include over 200,000 people.
