You've never tried any?
Beyond surprised

But anyway, I'd start with like beer/cider/lager and then maybe wines.
You can do spirits but definitely mix them

Cider has a low alcohol content and is probably a good place to start. You don't know how you tolerate alcohol so jumping straight into spirits may not be such a good idea.

Beer and ciders are cheaper.

Try more expensive drinks by asking for a sip of your mates in the pub.

I don't want to come across as preachy, but just a few thoughts.

I started drinking late as well, when I was 19. It was fresher's week; my first experience of drinking was Ring of Fire and I ended up vomiting off a balcony.

I developed a mild alcohol addiction and it contributed to the disaster that was my first attempt at university. I wish I had never started drinking, even though I now have it under control.

Alcohol is a narcotic and if you haven't experienced it then it may be wise to never start, as is the case with smoking and cocaine.

Stay away from beers to start with they taste like p*ss. Cider (NOT STRONGBOW) is a good shout and I'd also recommend gin and bacardi+coke if you wanna get hammered quickly.

If you're young (less than 20) you won't get a hangover.

Haha, curious who this is? And why I am tagged, when there are much established alcoholics on here. E.g. sin and gjd.

Spirits with mixers are good for first timer. For actual taste, then some nice wines or whiskeys.

Don't mix your drinks too much and hangovers are hell. Yes eat something first.

I've been drinking pints of Magners all afternoon. Perfect for a sunny day. ☀️
