my dad was an alcoholic my mom and my grandfather are both alcoholics when I'm older would like to go out and get a drink with my friends
But my family's track record with it has me worried that if i drink I will become an alcoholic. So what do you think will I be ok to have a drink with my friends when I'm older
Or will I become reliant on it like my family?

You need to know that you have a family history, which you obviously do, but you also need to be careful, yourself, when you drink. There are some studies that say there is a 'drinking predisposition' kind of gene, and other say BS!!
Ultimately, you have to choose, and be responsible, and watch out for yourself.
There are some that are 'addicts' and they drink, and can't really control themselves.
Others, maybe drink too much, sometimes, but don't do stupid sht, or get in trouble, or mess up their lives.
Only you can decide if you are an 'Addict' and need help, if you choose to drink, or maybe you just drink and you are not an 'Addict'. Only you can decide, because you know what you think, and feel!! If you feel a NEED to drink, you should probably get some help, in a program.
As you are WELL below the legal drinking age in many places, I would say to stay away from it, until you are legal age, where you are.1

You will not be reliant on it if you drink it with moderation.0
