I Drank Alcohol Before I Was 21

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,370 People

    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.

    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

    I had a group of friends, four girls four boys we were close. Did everything together. There was one boy in the group I had a thing with, and another that was talking to my friend, but always tried to be on me when we were alone..but I always refused. So one night we were all...

    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.

    Young and curious, I began my dance with the

    devil and for years I struggled to stop. For years I tried to understand its grasp on me. She was my lover who granted all my desires, to whisk away the pain. Her sweet lips captivated me to the last drop.

    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 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 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 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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
