How to talk to my teen that is struggling to understand his grandfather's alcoholism

My son gets very angry at his grandfather about his drinking. He struggles with understanding why he chooses it instead of not drinking and spending time with him.
Olivia K A good start would be to go through session 1 in the university section with him. This will help to educate him on the disease concept of addiction so he can gain insight into how alcoholism operates. Education is key and helps families separate their loved one from the illness.
