I personally do not believe in a gene for addiction.  The behaviors and actions, resulting from addiction, is what has a deep effect on raising children.  Addicted parents neglect their children --> children do not understand this and feel unloved -->  children then forced to fend for themselves (emotionally) --> children seek love elsewhere which is ultimately of the world -->  in comes promiscuity, gambling, etc., looking for security from neglect and/or alcohol and drugs looking to relieve the pain of neglect.

All in all, I believe addiction is passed down from parents only because it was not dealt with beforehand but not in the form of a gene because that basically says addiction cannot be overcome.
