    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 my first alcoholic drink

    when I was about 8~9 years old. It was at the house of my parents' close friends during a New Years party, and I just opened up a can of Budweiser in front of everyone. I never did like the taste then. My second alcoholic experience was while vacationing in Mexico when I was...

    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

    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.

    When I was 15 I guess,

    we have big barbeque in my uncle's house. They have beer and they let us have a taste of it. Well, not much, only few sips. When I was 17 too, my family go to mountain and stay for a night there, my uncle bring wine with him, and let me, my siblings, and my cousin to have a...

    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...

    Yes I did and it's nothing to be proud of

    but I think most people probably have done it. I grew up with an alcoholic father so there was always booze in the house. He would hide it and I would find it. His drink of choice was straight vodka. In my early teens if not at the age of 12, I would sneak sips here and...

    I drank at around the age of 12.

    I started on whisky and beer. I steadily increased in the amount of which I drank as I got a little older. I used to get drunk at around the age of 16. I also changed my drivers license to read 1962 instead of 1967 by altering the 7 which allowed me to go into bars at an...

    I started drinking when I was 15.

    I lived in a small Texas town and there wasn't much to do other than go to the pump jack for keggers. I wish I had never taken that first drink. It opened a whole world that I never belonged in but thought I did. I went from straight A gymnast jock, to skipping school to drink...

    It was only for special occasions like New Years

    and such, but when I was a kid, my parents would treat my older sister and I to fondue cheese with bread and steak. Then some wine. My mom usually got two different wines. One for myself and my sister and the other for my mom and dad. I remember drinking quite a bit of it when I...

    When I was under 21, I thought the minimum

    drinking age in the US was just plain stupid. I'm 39 now and my mind has not yet changed much on the issue. The only difference is now I would use terms other than "just plain stupid". I still don't agree with it, it shouldn't be higher than 18, but we have too many laws and...

    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 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...

    It was still legal because I was 19

    and in the Dominican Republic :) told my parents that I did when I got back and after that I could drink with my family on holidays without anyone saying anything. Besides, no one in my family agrees with the American drinking age.

    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.

    Drinking started with my involvement in a

    theatre group when I was 15. At 18 I was able to drink legally, so it was amusing to be asked for ID when I was visiting the US when I was 23 years old. I just wanted a glass of white wine to go with a meal. I'd had much stronger liquor over the years. Up until 26, whenever...
