Adults make awful decisions as well.

Because they feel like even if they do make mistakes, they've got a lot of time ahead of them in which to correct said mistakes. Whereas people die at every age completely out of the blue, as the media constantly remind us.

It's hard to think of any other reason why some are totally crazy binge drinkers - presumably they think their young bodies can take it, as they haven't taken much damage yet (but how long can they run with that one?).

Clearly, people are less likely to make the same mistake twice, which explains more sensibility as we age.

I could ask a similar question. "Why do people misuse anonymous when they don't need to?"

That doesn't make sense and it's not an excuse.

People make terrible decisions because sometimes they think it's the right one. Young people are in the process of growing up, so making some terrible mistakes sometimes it's part of life but, he who learns from it, is the wise one.

Adults make decisions based on experience. That experience comes from making mistakes in their youth.

Yes, but conversely adults can make boring derisions. Live a little, say yes more, make memories.

As long as you don't badly hurt yourself or others you'll laugh about it in the future

All kinds of adults make mistakes, it's false imo to believe older people don't make mistakes or even make fewer ones. They probably don't make the same mistakes, they make different ones although even that is not guaranteed.

Not restricted to the young - older people make terrible decisions too and it is all alcohols fault!
