I've never drunk and I never will. Seems like a complete mess.

When you need a painkiller and that's all you have.

I started actually drinking at 16. Perhaps that was too young, but that was just the tip of the iceberg of what I was doing & continued to do for the next decade. In retrospect, I would say 18 would be the acceptable age to start drinking, though perhaps regulate the sale of hard liquor to 20-21. In New York City, the sale of both beer & liquor in the same store is prohibited. Sell beer & similar products to those 18-20 & wait til 21 to buy hard liquor. Not like it matters. Kids can get alcohol so easy these days. I never had a problem finding a way to get booze since I was 16. I don't drink too often these days. The hangovers destroy me.

Well, it depends on the alcohol and how you drink. I started drinking a glass of wine with a meal since I was about 10/12 (can't remember exactly) and first started on spirits at probably a similar age, but again, this was all in extreme moderation (maybe one shot at most just to try it, never to get drunk, I was always told alcohol is to be enjoyed).

Now, I do drink fairly regularly but I rarely get drunk (not because I can handle my liquor, purely because I don't drink to get drunk) and so far I can say I have only ever had about 3 or 4 real hangovers, and none for about 6 years (uni time).

As for time of day, I'd say any time as long as you aren't drinking a whole lot

21, because I could go to jail. 18 when you're out of school, or perhaps sixteen, hmmm. TBH, I'm....MADD that I can't drink at 18. This makes me....SADD.


I don't know why I allways seem to go straight to you but, trust me alcohol tastes straight up nasty af, well unless you're getting LIIT, Mamosa's, etc. Sigh stick to soda and fancy juice it's the same damb thing.

I started at 13 years old with shandies, a mixture of beer and lemonade. My dad said he did it so that when I turned 18 then I'd view drinking alcohol as a natural thing and wouldn't be desperate to get drunk as possible (not that I think I would have anyway). But here I am, and I'm really not too fussed; I'll drink beer and cider and the like, but it's not the end of the world if I don't have it. Overall I'll say 16 for purely alcoholic drinks, but a lot of it depends on the responsibility of the person involved.

Age wise--after you're legal to drink and when you're mature enough not to be an idiot about it.

Time wise, meh, probably anytime after lunch is fine.

Yep, I don't like getting drunk. I just drink (mostly beer) to enjoy the taste of it, while I play a video game, listen to music, or watch a movie.

When I feel like it, but usually around lunch/brunch time period.
