    . I was 20. I had my first drink after my fraternity initiation ceremony with some bros. the next time I drank was at my buddies dorm. It didn't cross my mind to eat..being a music major I sometimes don't eat. So I went there on an empty stomach. I had half Pepsi/half vodka then...

    I do it on the occasion.

    Sometimes it just feels better. I've passed out a few times. My dad had never caught me so, hey, that's good. Don't regret though.

    Funny story. I was legal to drink at 19.

    When I turned 20, they raised the drinking age to 21. So I learned how to make a fake I'd.

    drink or do drugs until I'm 21. I laugh at myself now.

    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 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...

    I'm 14 and have for years.

    Probably bad.. I've only been drunk a few times. Once my mom found out I drank almost a whole 16 serving margarita bottle. That wasn't fun.

    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.

    My parents allowed us to drink at home from a

    young age. We weren't told we were not allowed to do something but to think it through beforehand because it's the consequences of being reckless that will get us in trouble. I think that was wise since you get to know your limits in a safe environment then if you want to crash...

    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 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...

    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

    Young and curious, I began my dance with the

    Definitely! Looking back at it,

    I was reckless. So many bad decisions, lots of fun though. We partied so much in college. We might have drank more before 21 then after.

    I drank alcohol before I was 21.

    When I was ten I wanted to be daring and bad because other kids did it. So I took some of my dads wine and drank half a glass. I was a little drunk. I felt a dull throb in my temple and everything was kinda blurred. I felt a buzz in my whole body like I was high or something...

    If you're saying drinking

    as in at all, then yes. I've had a few sips of beer before and some wine at church :p but that's as far as it has gone
