    I drank lots of watered down wine when i was younger or would have sips of wine from parents. We grew up in Jersey so spent lots of time in France where this is common.

    There's a photo of me when i'm 5 drinking white wine in a restaurant that i found lately. (a physical photo since this was the mid 90s)

    How about a drink moment rather than food?

    Back when I was ten, my dad invited a potential employer round to our house for dinner, a kind of "meet the family" thing. About midway through the meal I reached for my glass of lemonade, which tasted utterly revolting and unlike anything I'd ever drunk before. I told my mum it was horrible, and in an effort not to make a scene in front of dad's new boss told me to "be quiet and just drink it", so through gritted teeth I tried again, and stomached a bit more before complaining again. By this point my brother had picked up on my grimaces and tried it for himself, and also began commenting on how disgusting it was. Getting pretty irate about his two children whinging in front of his new boss, my dad stood up and proclaimed "For god's sake, it's only lemonade!" before taking a large mouthful, and spraying his boss with it as he spat it out immediately.

    Turns out they'd forgotten that they'd used the bottle to hold a different drink after cracking the original bottle a month before. My parent's had essentially been force-feeding us neat gin. Needless to say after forcing his pre-teen children to drink booze, shouting at them for objecting, and spitting on him, my dad was not offered the position =P
    That just made me laugh out loud in the middle of the TSR office. :lol:

    I drank a glass of my mother's wine when I was 13. I'm 20 now, but I've never been drunk (and I don't want to get drunk). I do enjoy a good glass of wine, an icecold beer or a sweet cocktail. But I never drink a lot.

    I had my first proper drink and got drunk when I was 17. My 6th year had a Christmas party and we had it at a friend's house. I drank far too much, and mixed like 5 kinds of alcohol then threw up

    Ended up being picked up and taken home by my mum :getmecoat:

    I don't plan on drinking alcohol. I mean I've seen the effects it can have on people etc.

    Anyway, I did take a sip of my dad's guiness when i was really young. I thought it was coca cola lol

    Used to get quite mortal off vodka or lambrini at the age of 13/14, in parks with my mates. Did no one else do this? Had some of the best fun in my life haha.

    Also did no one else used to stand outside shops for hours trying to get random strangers to go and buy your alcohol?
    Omg haha used to get drunk of frosty jacks 3 litre bottles with mates sometimes and yeah wait outside for people To go in....I never used to like asking though, that's all in the past now though and I am a changed man, moving up in the world while my old mates are thieving drug addicts now.... Such a shame
