    The last time I had some alcohol was a couple

    of weeks ago on my birthday. Lately I've been craving alcohol. I just really want to drink. It's probably cause I'm stressed. But I'm trying not to let it get to me. I told myself that I would not let myself turn into an alcoholic. I really don't want to be that kind of person...

    The Interesting Story Of Booze In My Life

    Of course I did, doesn't almost everyone? However, I was about 18. For a long time I didn't drink at all. People would try to get me to drink along with them, but I'd just tell them, "I don't drink". They'd look at me all stunned. Although I did later on start to drink a lot and...

    My mom cares what I do,

    but my dad really doesn't so he always lets me take really big sips of wine! No one is home tonight so I drank 1/4 of this bottle on my own! It felt so good going down on my throat. Like a very warm, tingly feeling.

    Yes I did and it's nothing to be proud of

    but I think most people probably have done it. I grew up with an alcoholic father so there was always booze in the house. He would hide it and I would find it. His drink of choice was straight vodka. In my early teens if not at the age of 12, I would sneak sips here and...

    I'm your typical white girl

    if you give me alcohol at a party. After the night you'll find me running around the place looking for my "modest outfit" pants and ending up wearing the hosts. I'll also probably say incesst instead of incense to mother before going to bed. Guh what a night that was.

    get into the bars pretty easy by the time we were 14 or 15. Poor guys definitely could not get in. Β So we got in, they did not. Β And yes, when we got in we drank!

    I grew up in a conservative family,
