ooo, you're in for a surprise.


Heh, yeah...beer isn't that good. I drink 211 (Steel Reserve) and bust beer bongs with it. Beer is an aquired taste, meaning you probably won't like it at first but within the 3-4th try, it'll begin to grow on you. Most alcohol doesn't taste good, to be honest. But man...some definitely do.

Just be careful with it. People DO drink and drive, and most of the time they make it where they need to go. But there are occasions when they don't...and the worst part of it is that statistcally, it isn't the drunk driver that gets killed, but the people he/she crashed into. The victims.

It's bad for you to drink when you are younger, because it messes with your system more. But I drink. I drink Jack Daniels and vodka and Bacardis and rum and shnapps....I drink all kinds of things. But I don't do it alot. And I don't drink beer. It's nasty. but I'm almost legal and I am mature about it. I know my limits and I never drive even when I've had one drink.

but I agree with T4iNT3D kinda. I sorta like teh idea of kids getting burned out on it before they are old enough to get hurt.

ahah underage drinking is fine, tbh i beleive if you dont start drinking underage by the time you are legal and start drinking it could turn out dangerous because since your not used to drinking you could be unpredictable and because your at a legal age, if u skrew up the consequences are massive.

Honestly, I don't think underage drinking is a big deal. . . If you aren't the type of person to get addicted to things easily. I tasted my first drink, beer, when I was 6 or 7, okay that stuff tasted like sh** then and it still tastes like sh**. But I started really drinking Mike's Hard Lemonade, or pina coladas at family parties when I was 11 ^-^.

I started drinking when I was 18 and since then, I hardly ever have drank much at all. Being 21 now, it's really quite boring. Don't get me wrong though, it's fun sometimes, but some people just take it way overboard.

(Wow, I'm tired... so if this isn't the most put together reply, don't worry too much, ha.)

Your situation is chill too. It's fun to drink when you're chillin' with buddies, or family, even if it is to get drunk. But it's also fun to be totally chill and social about it instead of getting smashed. I can out of bottle 151 and Everclear (I hate mixing) but I don't do it anymore because, since then, my stalling has lowered my tolerance. I've been in deep shit with drinking quite a few times, even while in the Navy, so I've lived the irresponsible side (mainly to escape stresses...yeah, I know, booooo =/) but I've lived the chill side and, in moderation, a natural depressant can actually lift your spirits with a slight buzz. One fact I have always found prevailed is that shit, if at 18 you are old enough to shoot and take bullets for your country, you should damn well be able to drink some effin' alcohol.

Just don't be a douche...be responsible about it. Otherwise you can destroy lives and have to live with it for the rest of yours, if you're lucky enough to survive.

Also, I agree with DawgsKitten, it is worse for you as a kid because your immune system isn't fully developed, but at the same time it is tempering your tolerance and can help you to resist in the long run. So it's give or take, it's up to you to decide whether or not the rewards outweigh the cost.

Binge drinking is nice once in awhile, especially after finals.
I think it should be fine to be able to legally drink at 18. If you're old enough to die
for your country, then you should be able to get shitfaced. Although [for girls mostly]
you should only do so if you know the enviroment around you is one
where you know someone WILL take care of you once you lose your senses.

I've had beer, vodka, and wine, but alcohol has no appeal to me. I'd rather have something that tastes good.

As for underage drinking, I'm somewhat conflicted.

On one hand, parts of Europe have done well without a crazy (and baseless) "must be 21!" law; on the other hand, the U.S. is a very different country. What works in one area does not necessarily work in another, especially not without background and foundation.

On one hand, some underage drinkers represent a threat to themselves and others; on the other hand, most do not, and the same applies to those who are of age.

On one hand, alcohol and drugs mess with the mind, leading to all kinds of problems; on the other hand, a responsible individual can regulate his usage to safe levels.

On one hand, it can be seen as a tool that can be misused or used properly; on the other hand, using it properly and misusing it are largely the same.

So I'm not sure, but I at least support lowering the age...
