    Don't say you didn't,

    we were all teenagers once and liked alcohol, we all liked partying with a bottle of beer in our hand.

    My parents always let me taste their drink

    when we would go out to eat (and we were never questioned because I apparently looked old enough then). By the time I was 21, I was like "Yeah...I'm over it" lol. Now, I don't even drink hard liquor, but don't mess with me and my wine!

    I was 13 when I started

    and my first drink was straight vodka. I have since fallen in love with it. I'm only 14 now. I use it to numb the pain of depression

    My first drink was when I was 6

    or even younger! Because my mom and older sisters would always drink around the house and just leave them in the table or counter top and I just assumed they were juice or water but no😳 lmao

    I Was 11

    I had my first drink when I was 11. I was over at my best friend's house. Her dad had gone to bed, my friend was in the shower so I knew where her dad kept the liquor. I tiptoed into the basement and found his stash of vodka. After taking a few sips, I knew I was going to get...

    My last experience with alcohol was almost a

    suicide attempt. I hadn't eaten in five days and was feeling really low, so I cut myself for the first time in months. Well, that only made me feel worse. So I started taking shots of vodka to make me feel better and ended up taking 10-12 shots with twenty minutes. I was going...

    Who hasn't drank underage before?

    Although this should read 'before 18'. It was certainly common place in the 80s when I was growing up. From being 13 my job on a Friday afternoon was to collect everyone's money, which was handed to Louise (the then gf), who's older sister would buy all the alcohol for us...

    The only ones I've ever taken a drink of is

    wine, which I personally find really gross. And rum, rum tastes okay, it's better with ginger ale or something, it tastes like cupcakes with soda with it hahaha

    I was invited to a party

    when I was 14. My mother didn't want me to go, but she let me go for an hour (over-protective, much?) I was given Smirnoff Grape and enjoyed the taste of it. My friends were talking about a sleep-over...and then my mother came. Ugh. So annoying.

    Drinking before 21 is common in American

    college culture, so what can I say? Here in Sweden, and in most other places, the drinking age is 18. I think the problem is not with age, but that people don't know how to drink responsibly and/or control themselves when they do get intoxicated.

    The legal age was 16

    where I grew up so I indulged legally from that age. I of course experimented with alcohol from about 14 years of age and probably had my first hangover at about age 15. Today I hardly touch any alcohol.
