That sounds like questions from someone writing an essay. If YOU or someone you care about might be alcoholic, it doesn't in the least matter what the average age might be, or what made you prone to it --- all that would matter would be seeing a good local shrink for a proper assessment and a discussion of your treatment options

Alcoholism is a genetic disorder. In fact alcohol is just the substance abused, the disorder is in the disease of addiction.
As a child if you used to sit on daddies lap and have a sip of his beer, it doesn't mean you are gonna grow up and addict, BUT if a child (or adult ) tastes something 16 times, they will acquire a taste for it - thats great advice if your children don't like carrots, but in reality you could be setting your child up for some addiction later on in life, whether its alcohol, food, or drugs.

This gene also skips a generation!

History of alcholism in the family plays a role.
