    So I went to a party last night and got extremely drunk and had to be taken home. I shouldn't have drunk so much alcohol but had drunk alcohol before and never really felt the effects so I thought it would be fine. Any ideas on what I can say to my parents so that they don't think I'm completely irresponsible and let me go out in the future??

    Never done it before, didn't know my limits, learnt my lesson, will be more careful next time, etc.

    Mum, dad, I got REALLY drunk last night. My head hurts, so I'm going back to bed, shout at me when I've sobered up please.

    Why would they care? If you're old enough to drink then you are old enough to go out without asking for permission

    Everyone has been there you parents can't stop you going out because of I'm nearly 20 years old and last year i got so drunk my friend had to call my mum to come and get me at first she was annoyed because of how drunk i was but after just laughed about it!! Nothing to explain just say i had a bit to drink last night and i started to feel the effects of it so one of my friends brought me home just felt like you should know! The leave it at that.
