No that by itself does not make you unfit to be a mother but it does mean that you will need to learn how to be a good mother. There is no rule book but you do have to follow a few rules on how to be a Mother. The most important thing to remember is that now you have a child that is totally depended on you for everything. Food, shelter, medicne, everything from the shoes on its feet to the toys that they play with. They must right now come first. Once you figure that out the rest is easy to learn. Good luck
Abuse, neglect, or incapability.
Any mother who cannot or will not adequately provide for her child emotionally and physically. * Unfit mother (parent) is a societal term rather than legal. What some would define as unfit would not necessarily be the same as the legal definition of what constitutes neglect and/or abuse.

An unfit home is a place where children are not safe. This can be because of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. Neglect is a factor in unfit homes.

I would think you would need to prove it in court. Whatever area you think they are unfit, you will need physical proof, not just hearsay, for example: drug addiction, mental illness, sexual abuse, neglect or abandonment. I would talk to your local Social Services and ask them what steps need to be taken.
You do not take custody of a child from a mother who you think is an unfit parent. You petition a court to make a determination that the parent is unfit and grant custody or a guardianship to you. See related link regarding the factors a court considers in determining a parent to be unfit.
Many many parents drink to excess and some are violent alcoholics. The definition of an unfit mother is probably a little bit more devastating than being "upsetting".
Unless your brother and his family can prove your mother is unfit to raise you then no, you can't legally move out of your mother's home. If your mother is unfit and your brother and his family want you to live with them then they will have to go to court for custody.
