Hi everybody.

I have an alcoholic in my family. My father is the alcoholic. I'm worrying about that it can be in next generation. I have a brother... I don't know (maybe I'm paranoid), but sometime I see him acting like our father... no limits.. I mean if he on the party he gets drunk as hell.

I don't drink alcohol at all, but what is the % that my baby can be an alcoholic?

I don't have the scientific answer but there is always a chance.  I do believe a lot has to do with enviornment so try to teach him/her to figure out better ways to overcome troubles should they have them.

Scientists are able to figure out how much each of these factors contributes to a trait by studying twins. Remember, there are two different kinds of twins -- fraternal and identical.Identical twins have exactly the same genes. Fraternal twins share only as many genes as do any brother or sister.
