    The fact I got drunk means I have no recollection of when I first got drunk. Is that bad?

    Well, the first time I got real drunk drunk was probably just before uni.

    Erm, sorry :getmecoat:

    Your poll isn't that helpful anyway since a lot of the options run over, like I said before with choosing 16.

    Allow little kids to buy booze, and let natural selection do its course.


    I'm 26, never been drunk, never will be.
    Think thats a little heavy.

    I don't agree with all this minimum price on certain alcohols etc though. If somebody wants to drink they will drink and there is no practical way of making alcohol totally inaccessible. In that light the best thing to do is discourage drinking in the same way say smoking is discouraged and leave the ultimate decision up to the individual (or parents if they're minors) rather than to waste money on pointless and disruptive regulations.

    I was quite tipsy one time when I was 15. After all the drinking I really needed to go, so I pissed on a step.
    I pissed onto train tracks once-:ninja: (could have ended badly)

    My dad who sells **** says since the discouragement of them, there is more youths smoking them than ever. He says he has never been so busy selling them.

    What? You mean you don't even remember the year? Sounds to me like you have a problem ma'am. :holmes:

    Well no offence intended, but theres pretty solid evidence that significantly less people smoke now than say 50 years ago that contrasts with your dads anecdotal study and I doubt he was selling cigarettes to youths before the discouragement to compare the figures anyway.

    17. It was my best friend's 18th birthday and I drank all of the vodka, laughed uproariously at the advert for that album by The Priests, wrote on my arm 'this is why peopell drink', threw up my fish and chips, and then fell asleep on the settee before we could watch an episode of Peep Show. Let it never be said that I don't know how to have a good time

    What do you mean? He has sold them for like 30 years. He has sold more than ever in these last few years.
