My uncle is an alcoholic, is it likely that some of his children will therefore become alcoholic also?

His daughters won’t speak to him but he has three sons that have stayed close. His ex is also an alcoholic though she’s not grouchy when drunk like he is.  At least not back when I knew her as it’s been a number of years since we’ve seen her.

    There is some evidence that a tendency toward addiction can be inherited, but genetics aren't always destiny.
