    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

    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've only had alcohol twice,

    the first time was when I was around 7, and it was an accident. I drank a mix of New Castle (I think?) mixed with some type of vodka, but it was only a little bit. It was out of a red cup that I thought was mine, and I honestly thought it was root beer until I was told otherwise...

    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 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...

    Even though the legal drinking age is 19 in

    Canada and I'm 20, I drank before the legal age. I was 15 when I started really drinking it quite a bit. Before, I'd have a few sips, but never drank a full can.

    My first drink was when I was 6

    When I was 14 I rebelled against my

    overprotective parents. I ran away from home, got drunk, loved that "high" of alcohol and met girls. It was mostly wine and because I had never had that before, I got drunk real fast and puked like crazy afterwards. I remember looking forward to running away just to get drunk. I...

    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...
