    You know, stealing from your parents isn't going to make them believe you're a responsible enough person to be allowed to drink. Do you really think they wouldn't notice a whole bottle of vodka going missing? Even if they haven't mentioned it, I'm sure they've noticed...

    I think it's really irresponsible to buy underage children alcohol to take to parties. I can understand buying it and allowing you to drink it in the home, where you're being supervised, but to actually buy it to take to a drunken ghouse party is not what I would consider acceptable at all.

    WKD and Bacardi Breezers are as strong as a premium lager..

    Ye from about the age of 13/14 until I quit just before my 16th birthday. It was mostly to drink at home though and was to try and prevent the whole 'OMG I'm old enough to drink now I have to binge to make up for all the years when I wasn't allowed' thing.

    Yeah they did, I had the odd beer or glass of wine in the house before hand but the first time my parents brought me alcohol in largish quantities was when I was 15 going to a 16th birthday house party. Which actually turned into a bit of a riot as it was really the first time most people there had drunk properly.

    My mum is fine with buying me alcohol - she remembers having to sneak alcohol out of the house when she was young, or even worse - getting an older friend to buy horrible cheap stuff, or brewing it themselves. She'd much rather buy me what I ask for, so that she knows how much i'm drinking and what I'm drinking. She would never buy me enough to get me completely wasted though.

    My dad would have a face on him if I had one drink when I was 18... I used to nick it sometimes but most of my friends parents didn't unless they had older brothers and sisters. Ironically the cops used to buy it for my brother and his mates down backways lol :rolleyes:

    So they are all of a low percentage.

    Yes, my father did. Although he was an alcoholic himself, so I'm not sure if that counts as he use to offer me drugs too.

    I know my mother wouldn't. She'd remember it though, next time I wanted her to do something for me or do me a favour. But even if your parents haven't noticed, I'm sure they will fairly soon, and then see if they'll buy you alcohol again. Only an idiot would steal a whole bottle and expect not to be caught at some point.

    I find it hard to sympathise with you, OP, if you're willing to behave immaturely and steal. You say in your first post that you drink responsibly. Doesn't sound like it to me. The first part of being responsible is being trustworthy.

    I don't know if this has been said since I cba to read the whole thread, but the reason your parents may not want you to take it out with you is because other people might have it.

    giving your own kid alcohol is one thing, supplying other people's kids is quite another.

    to answer the question; yes. my mum, dad and step dad have always been fine with buying me alcohol.

    Yeah, my parents did from time to time. It was painfully awkward asking them though.

    Or, you know, I'm someone grown up enough to buy their own alcohol. Guess which one of us is going to have the better night tonight and not be sulking.
