    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...

    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

    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...

    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

    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.

    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...
