    Do/Did your parents have a strict attitude towards alcohol? Nah - first memory I have of alcohol related is a party of theirs, which involved my mom crawling around under a table after someone having slipped port into the punch, my dad falling off a window sill with a pint of beer in his hand, my sister stumbling up the stairs with her best mate after getting back from the pub to giggle hysterically and land up in the airing cupboard. During this time me and my friend Sinead spent quality time setting fire to things in the back garden. So my parents do try to avoid being hypocritical about such things ;] Saying that though, they never have been big drinkers, my dad never did really and my mom only drinks once a year - Christmas morning whilst cooking lunch.

    When was the first time you got drunk? Oh er - I don't know when it was; in amongst my adolescent period of smoking weed - all I know is that the night involved much weed and much tequila. Excellent. I was utterly wrecked, mostly from the alcohol.

    Any bad experiences? Erm, I was visiting a male-friend and his brother came in after having been at the pub with all his mates and started trying to beat the crap out of my friend - that wasn't good, he spent much of the night trying not to cry and I spent it trying to keep him calm.

    and most importantly, do you need alcohol to enjoy yourself? Nah. It's a social tool really, but when you're with close friends I've never found it's necessary - maybe only when you're meeting new people.

    What's your personal experience with alcohol?


    Do/Did your parents have a strict attitude towards alcohol?
    Not really, with me at least. But they're wierd like that. They totally trust me but sh!t on my brothers when they do the smallest thing.

    When was the first time you got drunk?
    I was 16 the first time I got properly smashed. I went through this phase of sorta getting pissed, and then one night after work I went to this house party and downed half a bottle of vodka, had some weed, had some beer and I can't remember the rest of the night. I know I acted like a complete ****** though and I felt like the biggest fool afterwards.

    So.... I've not really gotten that pissed again. It's the sort of thing I guess you need to experience once at least. I'll probably do a repeat in a few months anyway though - I'm just waiting for the right opportunity.

    Oh. See above.

    and most importantly, do you need alcohol to enjoy yourself?
    Well, no. But I tend to socialise with people I'm already very friendly with. I guess it can help you relax so it's more of something to compliment a good night out I guess..

    Do/Did your parents have a strict attitude towards alcohol? Not at all, they've been happy to let me try their drinks and since I started drinking at parties bought me drinks if I ask for them - as long as they're not too expensive lol
    When was the first time you got drunk? I've never been properly drunk, but I guess I was verging on it earlier this year when I was 17 and a half
    Any bad experiences? Nope, I've never been sick from it - I think since I've never felt under pressure to drink loads I just drink enough to get me going
    and most importantly, do you need alcohol to enjoy yourself? No but it is enjoyable to see others drunk and do daft things

    2. 16, a couple of months ago at my best mate's house when her parents were out. I drank a loada wine, but not as much alcohol as on new year's eve (but i didn't get drunk then, i was just very happy) but i wasn't feeling so great to start with which mighta been what did it.
    3. no, but my neighbours regually have parties with lots of alcohol and all the neighbours and their friends used to go years ago, anyway i was about 9 and my bro musta been 13/14, he drank practically an entire bottle of pimms and the boy next door was drinking beer and then i erm... punched the boy (he was older than me btw) in the stomach (can't remember why) and he threw up.

    My parents have never been strict towards alcohol - from about the age of 14 I was allowed to have wine with my evening meal, as long as it was only 1 glass.

    The first time I got drunk was when I was 13...and it was under my older sister's influence, and on about 3 cans of Stella. I ate pizza and threw up everywhere. I then went to bed and my head was spinning - I was so scared, I thought I was going to die!!

    Bad experience - notably last weekend, big drinking session after work...let's just say I don't remember much of that evening and I'm quite glad!

    The first time i got piss drunk was when i was fishing with 3 other friends at a river, we caught fish and smashed them into rocks and signs on the road, then we walked back to the camp site with blood all over us and sat around the fire and chated.

    Another time i got drunk was when a bought a 2/6 of Crown Royal and got pissed and ran around town with my friends went home, and 2 hours later got up for work, went to work drunk and pretty much got sent home.

    reciently, went to a lake with a 40 of Lambs navy with a few friends, then went to another frineds house and his dad made us steaks.

    I dont like drinking much, costs too much, and ussually gets me in trouble, my parents dont like me drinking because i have alcholics in my family.

    I'd invite you to a party or a night out. It wouldn't cost much to entertain you.

    I'll drink if I feel like it when I go to pub with friends. Some times I'll have coke, sometimes OJ, sometimes beer. Only been drunk once, on my 18th. Normally I don't see the point, it's just too expensive...unless you go to Weatherspoons, but that place is plain crap.

    I'm quite fond of a little crack from time to time.

    Why not get drunk like the tramps do? With cheap cider or beer.

    Do/Did your parents have a strict attitude towards alcohol?

    No not at all. My parents were very reasonable and expected me to return the favour by not getting into too much trouble and keeping quiet if I got home late.

    When was the first time you got drunk?

    Properly drunk at about 14...I drank before then but only got slightly tipsy. My sister managed to get drunk on champagne with christmas dinner at the age of 2 (she only had a tiny sherry glass full but it was a bit much)

    Any bad experiences?

    Not really. I probably shouldn't have had quite so much vodka the night before driving down to uni with my dad. 6 hours in a car trying desperately not to throw up some more isn't the best start to uni life....actually scratch that it's probably the most appropriate start to uni life .

    I regret drinking Archers and Taboo at any point in my life due to the general disgusting sickliness of both drinks.

    Oh and wine disagrees with me - even a mouthful makes me throw up at around 3/4pm the next afternoon.

    and most importantly, do you need alcohol to enjoy yourself?

    Nope - I much prefer a few special cookies.

    I don't drink much these days...I started to twig that it wasn't actually making me any more fun to be around - just a slightly more wobbly on my feet person to be around. And I don't like hangovers (I suffer enough from losing sleep without drinking after a heavy night so adding dehydration on top just seems like more pain than gain).

    Since I've been back from the US I've been a lightweight (I suppose that's what 5 months of abstinence does to you). I don't feel like getting drunk either; it just doesn't appeal to me any more. I will have to see what the situation at uni is like, but I can't imagine getting very drunk there, even if that is the role I'm expected to play as a student.

    Well your abstinence was uncalled for. You could have just gone to Canada like all young horny Americans do.

    This is so easily the best attitude for parents to have - my parents are the same and I've respected them for it. I've never come in after being out and made loads of noise (well apart from my 18th when I came in quietly but managed to trip over the lead for the portable fan that was in my room and when trying to steady myself knocked loads of stuff on my dressing table :rolleyes: would probably have still done it sober though) or been up being ill all night, or trashed the place. If they'd have had the no alcohol til you're 18 view then I probably would have drunk anyway and it would have caused loads of arguements. I have a friend who'll be 21 in October and her mum thinks she's going off the rails if she so much as walks into a pub. As it is, she hardly drinks even if she does go to a pub because she knows what her mum will say, but it still doesn't stop her mum frowning on it.

    This may be due to the fact I respect my liver and intend to keep it in a reasonable state.
