Re: Do you drink alcohol...? - January 8th 2012, 07:18 PM

I know a lot of kids at my school drink, especially the upperclassmen. Even some freshmen and sophomores drink on the weekends. I get offered all the time, but I'm in athletics and know it won't be good for me. I'm obviously forbidden to drink by my dad, but my uncle has let me have a couple sips of beer a few times.

I like drinking, but I don't get drunk very often. I have a serious love a craving for red wine sometimes It won't become a problem for me, because I don't drink too regularly. However when I'm 18, I may find myself drinking more, because I can :s

alcohol can do bad things but i do control how much i drink so that i no i wont do anything silly


A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes. Status symbol means nothing to him. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog judges others not by their colour or creed or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his. If only we opened our eyes. Sometimes it took a dog with worse manners, and pure intentions to help us see what counts in life, and what doesnt

Re: Do you drink alcohol...? - January 8th 2012, 11:20 PM

Right now I really don't. I never been drunk and I mainly only drink a lil at family parties. In college I might drink a little more, but for a more social thing and nothing crazy. I have the same concerns with alcoholism and plus I don't like the idea of people having the upper-hand on me while I'm drunk xD Plus I like the idea about being able to party and socialize without the need of a substance.

It's not too bad if you handle it responsibly, which is something I'm gonna try to do. I just really want to get wasted before I go to college so that way I know how much I can handle, how I act when I'm wasted, and come up with plans on how to limit/keep myself safe when I do drink in college.

I've tried all sorts of alcohol but just can't stand the taste or how it affects me. It's hard to socialize on the weekends when people around you do it but hey, it's me.

I do on occasion. Never been drunk though. It's rare because I'm underage, I like to keep control, and it's expensive.

No I don't drink. I never want to just because my mom does and is drunk every night.

I've been drinking on and off since I was fifteen. I acknowledge that this is not such a good thing. However, now that I am of legal drinking age, I've gotten a bit more responsible. I'm not supposed to drink all that much do to my anxiety medication however... It's something I'm working on with my therapist.

Totally illegal still, but I guess I'm kind of a social drinker.
I can handle my alcohol pretty well, but I've still done some pretty dumb things.

I prefer hards over beer. I hate beer.
