Alcohol and sobriety are reoccurring motifs throughout the story. Alcohol is seen as a drink that kills the body and destroys the spirit. Huck's Pap is a raging alcoholic who abandons his son until he finds out he (Huck) has come into reward money. The charlatans, the King and Duke, also drink alcohol. Alcohol is thus seen as a weakness of spirit and character.
