When I was 10 I drank wine for lunch with my parents. Never got drunk or anything, but I don't think there's anything wrong with drinking a bit. I'm 15 now as have never gotten drunk yet.

My parents let me try sips whenever they drink but I think it's so gross and eww. I'd rather stick to candy and ice cream.

Like accidentally drinking a little bit of beer because you thought it was tea?

Holiday party had 2 kinds of eggnog. I wasn't aware there was a difference between the punch bowls so I ended up with the one that had rum in it.

By the way, you were in my dream a couple of nights ago.

I was happy to see you and were really cute but the I was bummed you didn't recognize me and then it was awkward as you brushed me off. But it's just a dream. First (and only) time someone from SOH made an appearance in my dreams.

Oh yeah it was you. I mean your head on a body my subconscious chose for you since I've only seen your profile pic. And you acknowledged your SOH username. There was no doubt in my mind.

..wow, first time I've heard of someone seeing me in their dream. The part where I didn't recognize you and all sounds about right bc maybe I haven't memorized your face yet when you had your pic up.

First taste was excellent moonshine at 12 after a long, cold bird hunt. Next was beer at 16, hated it (still do). A quart a day of vodka for a while, then (and now) nothing,

I had just read rheanna's comment where she thought the under 21 people might be lying. ^.^

At first it was all red for under 21 :) ..do you think your faith has been the reason you have decided not to?

I'm sure it has played a role... But I really just don't want to. It isn't like I really want to but I refrain for religious reasons.
I have a few family members who have dealt with alcoholism, so it isn't all that appealing to me.

Oh gotcha. If I saw how negatively it could affect my loved ones, it would repel me as well.

I was partying every weekend when I was 18-19 but now at 23 I will drink maybe once a month.

A sip of beer, 2 wines, Kahula, Chocolate Kahula, scotch, and a couple others. Hated them all.

Yep. Thing is, my bro liked them. I still occasionally take a sip or so if my parents offer, purely out of curiosity, even though I wouldn't actually ever drink any of it. He, however, has been banned from 'taste testing'

High school friends, at the weekend in the park.

It was only 3 years before the legal drinking age, so not that different to American teens drinking at 18.

Yes, presently. I am 20. I feel it's a choice I should be considered mature enough to make at this point.

No, I waited until I turned 21. And it was a mistake. I should've started earlier. Lots of lost time to socialize with friends and make new ones.

When the drinking age in much of the country was 18 or 19, it seemed silly to honor a state law I did not support or respect. So that's a yes. The consequences would have been on me, but in the same situation, I'd do it again.

Oh yes... Quite a bit of it. It used to be an almost every night thing, haha. Ironically, now that I'm of age, I don't drink near as much as I used to two-five years ago.

Where I grew up, Denmark, there was no drinking age. I'm sure I violated any law you have or had.

Where I grew up we start drinking young and get over it sooner.

Do you think it was a good idea your parents let you drink around them, and what was your drink of choice in college?

When I drank around my parents it was usually just nice occasions and maybe a glass of wine here and there. I didn't have much interest in drinking till college. I mainly drank beer in college, some wine sometimes

I think some of the under 21s are afraid their parents look at this app. ;)

I actually got tired of getting drunk. So I quit. I found more and better things sober.

Good choice.

MrLucchese If curious, ask.
10/14/13 6:37 pm

Occasionally I have a sip or two, but other than that - no.
When I'm out of the country and it's legal, I drink some.

If my parents offer me something to try. I don't really see any reason to drink alcohol, personally.

MissN The Experiment
10/14/13 7:28 pm

Yeah, there is really no good reason to.. but for the ones that try it at that young an age, there seems to be really no good reason not to ..of course, until they learn the consequences of it.
