The Hunger Games

Why is Haymitch bitter and stubborn and always drunk?

9 years after his Hunger Games, Haymitch is stubborn and bitter and drunk. Why?

^^ I'm not sure if I calculated right but he won in the 65th Hunger Games right?

I think Haymitch is critical of the games. He is tired of seeing young lives wasted in the arena. He drinks to escape his anger and guilt over sending so many kids into the arena only to watch them die.

He doesn't like the fact that he was thrown into an arena where he had to be hunted down.
