Majority of our great Ulama say that any percentage of alcohol should be be avoided, but there is a verdict from prominent Maraja' of Taqleed that the very tiny percentage like 1% or 2% can be permissible if it has been completely mixed with other contents and became like content.

Precaution is always good although you must follow the verdict of the Marja' of Taqleed whom you follow.

We should not promote using the names or Colors of wines. Wine is type of evil ) رِجسٌ مِن عَمَلِ الشيطان فاجتنبوه (Sura Al-Ma'idah, verse 90)

which should never be promoted by Muslims.

Hadeeth says: When a person dislikes something, he will dislike mentioning it and will dislike it's being mentioned in front of him.

Some people mention the letter W saying: W for wine or whiskey. This is wrong because it promotes an evil. We can say in stead: W for water or W for west or W for wing, etc.

If that really was the case, and you are a Shi'i Muslim, then the divorce is invalid and has no effect. 

There are numerous conditions for an Islamic divorce to occur, and from what you have said, none of them have been met. Therefore, she is still your wife. 

You do need to deal with your alcoholism. As a Muslim, you know of its severity and how spiritually, morally and socially damaging drinking is. 

With prayers for your success.

Watching football team is allowed provided you avoid sinful acts which can be done by some other fans, and not wasting long time in watching the football. Our time in this life is limited and we must utilize it in useful things for our upliftment  and future. Wasting lot of time in watching games makes us lose and miss the aim of our life. Those who waste time will be among the losers and repent a lot when repenting will never help them. Hadeeth from Ahlul Bayt AS) stated that: We were not created for (wasting time on) playing but for big aim.( Tafseer narrated from Al-Hasan Al-Askari).

The most important thing a person must do in life is be very cautious about the circle of friends he/she has, and who they associate with. 

We need to be extremely picky and sensitive towards this. 

You need to advice your brother about the direction he is going, and how all this will affect his spirit and religious faith. Try to show him the bad effects of these people he is associating with, and how damaging something like an illegitimate relationship will be, and also alcohol. 

If your advice does not have any effect, try to ask someone he respects to intervene, inform your parents to calmly advice him, and just try your best to dissuade him. Seek advice from people around you as well, who know him.

Dua is also very important. Hopefully, he will come to his conscience and realise the wrong direction he is heading. Just never give up.

With prayers for your success.
