Hell, my mom offered me a glass of wine this past new years, and I refused.

I think kids just need to realize that drinking isn't cool. Being drunk only makes you look stupid. NOBODY can drink and still drive, and your brain is only being more and more damaged the earlier you drink.

There is a reason the legal drinking age is 21. The last part of your brain to develope is the first part that's effected by alchohol.

The most alcohol I've had is a tiny bit of Baileys in some coffee.
But I wasn't drinking it for the alcohol.

When I was on a cruise once, this guy, who was like 17 or 18, was talking to me and a counsellor for the youth group about how he thought it was amazing that Canada's drinking age wasn't 21.
Needless to say, he got kicked out of the Teen club for many reasons.

I just read that apparently Minors can drink in NB under the supervision of adults?
That sounds messed up.

It's still illegal. Just because your in your home doesn't mean it's not. The legal drinking age is 21, no exceptions. Just because there is a lesser chance of getting caught doesn't mean it's not illegal.

If you're at a party and there is under-age drinking and the cops DO come into your home, and they find out what's going on, someone's going to jail.:confused3

If you feel the need to brag about it, and you think that doing it makes you cool, then obviously you are drinking irresponsibly and for the wrong reasons. Consuming alcohol does not instantly make you more mature. Judging from your posts, and attitude, I think that you still have plenty of growing up to do.

Okay, I just have one thing to say...most of you will probably drink eventually...it's not that bad if you don't get riproaring drunk...if the legal drinking age was lowered there wouldn't be that much of a teen alcohol problem (because it's legal...not rebellious)...some of it tastes good:lmao: ....now at like 15, nah...18 up, yeah that's okay as long as you don't drive....

I've drank, I'll admit...I've been trashed beyond belief....but I've also done some stupid things in my life...such as that...so yeah....

But drinking a tiny bit isn't that bad....and Mike's Hard Lemonade or whatever doesn't have that much alcohol in it to begin with...

Early practice for me!
I agree with the earlier posts. First of all it's ILLEGAL and if you're drinking in your home you just have less of a chance. You should not do it again. Because the one time that you have it in your little naive head that you're not going to get caught you WILL. Second of all it's completely and utterly DUMB. Third of all you don't need alcohol to have fun. Fourth of all it was completely and utterly STUPID of you to post this on the internet where ANYONE can see it. For instance like the police in your area. They could go on, see this, and track YOU down. Then you'll be in a heap of trouble. Fifth we are NOT being mean. We are NOT being mean, so don't even try to pull that one on us. We are telling YOU the TRUTH and trying to PROTECT you. But if you want to go and drink alcohol and look like a moron to the rest of us fine.:sad2: We'll miss you.

And theres no way I agree with it! my parents never drink and i dont think its what i would like to do either, whether im 16 or 36 :confused3 Here in the UK the legal age is 18, and it is legal if its on private property with parent permission, but I say its pointless you can enjoy yourself without alcohol even more

If someone knowingly had that disorder, then why on earth would they consume alcohol? Anyway, it is not like every alcoholic has that mental condition. Most likely, very few do.

For people who do not have that condition, responsibility still has everything to do with addiction. If someone were responsible enough to choose not to drink alcohol, then they wouldn't become addicted. You can't become addicted if you haven't tried any yet. It's a choice that you make on your own, and choosing wisely and controlling yourself is, in itself, responsibility.

You seem like you're having issues typing. maybe alcohol isn't right for you...wait...something's coming to me...oh...that's right! ITS ILLEGAL! Gosh darn, I knew there was something wrong with this situation. Alcohol can ruin your life and your teenage years are when you're most likely to develop an addiction. Don't do it again. At least, wait until you're 21 and legally able to. Then, if you do drink, and you drink too much and somebody dies, they can charge you as an adult, and you can go to jail. And lose your liscence. And have a horrible life. Oh, and if you keep drinking consistently after that, your liver will really hate you. Forever. You really don't need alcohol to have fun. Actually, you have more fun without it because then you can remember all the fun you had.

Most people don't KNOW they have it.

A mental condition that some people have, is not a justification for alcohol abuse in its entirety. There are plenty of alcoholics who got hooked because of something other than a disorder. Besides, an addictive personality does not completely guarantee that the person will become addicted to anything that they try.

And if someone is truly responsible about consuming alcohol, then they will find out if trying it is safe for them, and complies with their own personal values or morals. If someone were really mature, and serious about drinking, then they would find out about their own health and personal risks, before drinking. One of the biggest problems is that people just assume that they will be perfectly fine consuming alcohol, without considering possible health concerns of their own.

But it is justifiably for the portion of alcohol abuse I was speaking of.

And do you consult a doctor, a psychologist, and have a complete mental and physical check up before trying something? No, I really didn't think you did. And neither will someone with this condition.

Mental disorders can hit you at any time. You're not always born with them. I was born with my addictive personality, but you can also develop one at any point in your life.

I can agree with that, to some degree. But that medical condition certainly does not justify the other, greater portion of alcohol abuse. Just those that have become addicted because of their medical condition.

And do you consult a doctor, a psychologist, and have a complete mental and physical check up before trying something? No, I really didn't think you did. And neither will someone with this condition.

I was pretty unreasonable with the assumption that all people must get examined before trying something, but then again, I have to, so I guess I took my own personal experience too far.

My mom started casually having alcoholic drinks maybe four times a month, after years of not having any alcohol, and then she started having horrible pains. Turns out, her liver got really hard, and was basically pickling in her body. The doctors said that she had the liver of a long-term alcoholic, even though she wasn't even drinking that much. Because of this, along with my maternal family's history of alcoholism and my constant health problems, I do have to check with my doctor before any change to my normal diet, which includes consuming alcohol. I suppose after growing up constantly having to worry about my health, it has just become natural for me to assume that everyone is as cautious as I have to be.

Mental disorders can hit you at any time. You're not always born with them. I was born with my addictive personality, but you can also develop one at any point in your life.

Trust me, I live with mine every day. I know.

Usually, addictive personalities are detected at an early age, but in cases where they develop later in life, I can see where you are going with this. What I'm trying to say here, is that although what you're saying about addictive personalities is true, it certainly does not justify all forms of alcohol abuse. I think what I failed to make clear, is that I agree with you when it concerns mental conditions such as that, but that I also believe addictive personalities can not be held accountable for every alcoholic. That concept is quite far-fetched, and I think that you feel the same way.

I think that this conversation has gone too far into addictive personalities. This is a major misunderstanding on both of our parts. I was not even talking about mental conditions in my post, I was talking about people who can control themselves. I really didn't intend to talk about people with addictive personalities. I think we stand on the same side of the fence, regarding that. I am talking about regular people, who can control themselves, and how they should be responsible. An undetected addictive personality is an entirely different situation.

Ok...
I don't know why you'd be happy that you just drank something that could potentially be harmful.

Not ALL roses are red.
Not ALL music is good.

Not ALL balls bounce.
Not ALL cars are fast.
Not ALL spiders are bad.
Not ALL sharks eat man.
Not ALL groups of people like Disney.
Not ALL of our generation is lazy.
Not ALL days are sunny.

I'm sorry if I've offended you, however. I'm sick and tired of someone saying something about a particular group of people, and then watching someone step up and say how not ALL of that group is like that. Look, she was only talking about one particular group of Alchoholics. We know not ALL alchoholism is caused by mental disorders that people already had. I'm also sick of someone using something to compare. Just compare. Not to say how it's similar, just to use it as an example to make a point, then have someone be like...IT'S NOT THE SAME!

She made a comment on a group of alchoholics, and you went on to say how not all alchoholics are like that. Maybe not in those terms, but you did.

OP: hopefully you understand everything clearly now. :thumbsup2

I do not understand why this thread was made.
I don't understand why the OP felt the need to promote the face that she had a vodka cooler? :confused3


I've read through this board, and it's quite sort of interesting to see everyone's opinions on the topic though.

In my personal opinion, I don't care if people drink. I won't be a hypocrite and say it's bad to drink, but I don't understand the point in publicizing it on the DISBOARDS??

In Ontario, the legal drinking age is 19, but you can drink in your own house without the police interferring. Police here are actaully pretty leniant about the drinking age stuff. I was once at a party in someone's backyard and the police came, and everyone was drunk, and they didn't hand out ONE ticket. They were very nice and they just told us to quiet down a bit.

And at the beach for our prom after party, all the cabins where all the high schoolers were are on private property and the police couldn't come in and "bust" anyone for drinking. But if you bring a can of beer outside the property you can get a ticket. (not that many people did, as i said, the police are extremely 'lax about such things)



ANYWAYS, once again, don't see the need for people to be bragging on the DISBOARDS when they have a vodka cooler.

I don't see the problem with that. I mean, I know that not all alcoholics have an addictive personality, and I know that not all alcoholics don't have an addictive personality.

No harm done, I was just pointing it out, strictly for the purpose of getting our conversation back on track. I was not talking about addictive personalities, so I was trying to steer back on track, with a sort of ''Yes. But anyway...''

I'm not sure how that is a bad thing, so uhm... sorry? :confused3

But that's the thing. You don't NEED to point it out. We know already. We're not stupid.

It just gets redundant when someone does it for every little thing. I'm not saying that's what you're doing, but you just happened to be the straw that broke the camel's back.

That's understandable. I know that I don't need to point it out, I guess I was just trying to emphasize my own point.

But, I know what you mean.

And I might not know much about this disease, but I didn't know you can get it from sex. What type does he have?

Yes, Hepatitis B you can get from sexual relations with an infected partner, water, sharing needles with an infected person, or a baby can get it from an infected mother.

Hepatitis A, B, C, and D can be contracted by having sex with an infected person. I'm not so sure about Hepatitis E though.

Oh see, I'm only familiar with Hep A. I know that is spread through feces. So I was just a bit confused.
