In brief: Outgrow alcohol abus

If he drinks as a result of peer pressure, and does not have internal impulse to drink, and does not drinks or binge excessively [i.
E way less than 5beers or equivalent/day], and his elder generations are not alcoholics or/and no mental diagnosis, then he may have a chance to outgrow his stupidity. Alcoholism is strongly hereditary. People cannot get addicted to it unless the genes to digest exist.

In brief: Maybe

Unfortunately many people have longstanding issues with alcohol overuse and misuse - age is not the cause.
