I Drank Alcohol Before I Was 21

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,692 People

    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!

    The legal drinking age here is 18.

    Although I started drinking in pubs at a little over 15

    The first time I got drunk,

    was when I was 13 years old. It wasn't to be rebellious or anything, I was just curious.. :)

    Once I was at a party in this house near the

    woods, and I drank so much I started to run towards the trees screaming "I'M A BEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR", then I stumbled on a rock and just lay on the grass singing something like "Teddy Bear so sa a a aad" until someone noticed and brought me back in. Glory days

    Law is only 18 in UK

    so we were getting rather drunk a lot earlier than 21

    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.

    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 would have a glass of red wine with my Sunday roast.

    coming from a Hispanic family I was always offered a swig from my drunk uncles and aunts during family parties lol. It's a custom. However, I first got drunk when I was 17. Since that experience, I have a disliking towards alcohol. My friends are drinkers but I'll go out of my...

    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...

    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 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.
