Hey, I'm curious on your opinions on Alcohol. Here are my questions:

If so, how old were you then?
Why did you have alcohol?
How much did you have?
Hangover or not?
How bad?
If you haven't had alcohol, what are your thoughts on it?
If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
Anything else about this topic I missed.

Have you ever had alcohol?
Yep.

If so, how old were you then?
Well you might be given the occasional glass of champagne or whatever when you're younger, but first time I drank it with my friends was fifteen.

Why did you have alcohol?
We were curious.

How much did you have?
A couple of cans each ^^

Hangover or not?
Nope. We were very hangover-conscious and drank buckets of water before we slept, even though we weren't more than tipsy (:

How bad?
Nothing.

If you haven't had alcohol, what are your thoughts on it?
N/A

If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
I would warn my brother to stay away from spirits for a few years, and to start out slowly and gradually.

Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
No. Most of my peers start drinking at around fourteen, so we were late bloomers

Anything else about this topic I missed.
thanks.

Nothing I can see!!

enough to get drunk

My thoughts have copmpletely changed so I'm answering this. Drinking is stupid, and illegal under 21. It creates deaths and addictions.
If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
Do not ever touch alcohol, especially under 21. When you start to drink at a young age you are more likely to have an addiction. Do not use alcohol as an anti-depressent. My dad choked to death when his alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit. It was an accident that caused him to die. If you do drink drink responsbly, and never try and drive a car. Never get in a car with someone who has been drinking even if its an adult.
Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
Yes.

Alcohol's consequnces are often underestimated until one affects you personally.

Have you ever had alcohol?
Yes
If so, how old were you then?
I really have no idea. Growing up my parents would give me a sip of their wine or mixed drinks if I wanted. However, the first time I got drunk I think I was 12.
Why did you have alcohol?
I tried alcohol because I was curious. I kept drinking because for the most part I enjoy it.
How much did you have?
When I was young it was only sips here and there. When I was 12 and got drunk for the first time I spilt a bottle of Champagne with my friend at Christmas.
Hangover or not?
No hangover the first time but I tend to get them every time I drink now
How bad?
I'm prone to headaches so having a super hangover headache is no fun.
If you haven't had alcohol, what are your thoughts on it?
I have had alcohol but I'll give you my thoughts anyways... I think it is fine in moderation.
If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
I would tell them to try and find out their limits early on and not push those limits. I would also warn them that they are bound to make some mistakes while drunk and they need to watch out for themselves. I would talk to them about the dangers of drinking and driving and let them know if they are ever in trouble they can call me no questions asked. I'd also give them a few tips about dos and don'ts of drinking. Finally, I would ask them if they really think they are ready for this and if they think they are mature enough to stay safe.
Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
Nope

Have fun and be safe everyone

Lots of love <3 Mimi

Yes.

Around 13-14 or so.
Why did you have alcohol?
We were at a family party and I saw everyone else drinking it, so I wondered, if everyone is having it, then it must be pretty good.
How much did you have?
I'm not exactly sure. My cousin (a year or two younger) also had some and we both got pretty sick.
Hangover or not?
Yes.
How bad?
Like having a bull smash on your head with its hooves over and over again.

"You're not missing anything if you intend to get drunk. If you want to try a bit, go ahead"
Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
No. I'm well aware of the various consequences (from courses in medical pharmacology, 2nd year university biology courses, etc...). I don't drink anymore though, that time was one of the very few times I actually do drink. I like to have chocolate brandy candies as the volume of alcohol is so small and I don't have a lot at once.

If you don't want to answer the questions you gave, then why bother asking others? Also, why the large font?

Have you ever had alcohol?
Yes.

If so, how old were you then?
I've been drinking a half-glass of wine at dinner with my family for longer than I can remember, but my first time drinking heavily was when I was 16, at a friend's birthday party.

Why did you have alcohol?
There was lots to go around, and I'm happy to try almost anything once. That, and Smirnoff Ice tasted quite good.

How much did you have?
Eight coolers, according to my mate. I don't actually remember the last couple, or the last couple hours of that night.

Hangover or not?
Surprisingly no. I can drink myself stupid, and the worst I have the next day is a slightly queasy stomach.

How bad?
Well, I had at some point passed out on the floor, and I woke up around 5 in the morning. Staggered home across town, got another hour of sleep, had to be up at 7 to go to a curling tournament, and I played well. So, not too bad. :P

If you haven't had alcohol, what are your thoughts on it?
N/A

If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
Unless you're planning to avoid alcohol forever, get steaming drunk at least once just so you know where your limit is. These days I can pretty reliably stop myself at the point of being tipsy but not drunk, or the point of being drunk but not ill.

Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
No, not at all. It was fun, my friends and I had a good time, it gave us a few things to laugh over afterward, and we even did well at the curling tournament.

Anything else about this topic I missed.
I guess you could ask how people's first experiences with alcohol affect their current drinking habits.


The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.

Yes
If so, how old were you then?
I had my first drink knowingly @ age 20. Friends had given me drinks that I didn't realize contained alcohol when I was 18.
Why did you have alcohol?
I was in the UK and was therefore legal there, and went to a pub with friends. It was just a natural thing to do.
How much did you have?
At that time, I just had 1 Captain & Coke. The most I've ever had was 3 beers (which at my size is nothing).
Hangover or not?
Never been drunk, so no.

When you're legal, it's enjoyable in moderation. Abusing it can quickly lead to negative effets

Have you ever had alcohol?
Yes.

If so, how old were you then?
13.

Why did you have alcohol?
Me and my friends took it from her house and we just wanted it.

How much did you have?
It wasnt really a lot. We had a small bottle of vanillia vodka and danced in the rain.

Hangover or not?
I didnt have one for the first time. But Ive had them in the past.

How bad?
Sometimes headaches, usually tired and cranky. But for some stranger reason, Im good at taking tests hungover, loll.

If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
I deff have more than one thing to say to them. Lol. I would tell them to know their limit and dont try and show off or do something they know they cant handle. You arent trying to impress anyone. Also, I would tell them to drink with friends and stick together. If there are people you dont know that youre drinking around, try to stay with you friends and be safe. DONT drive and drink nor get in the car with anyone youve been drinking with. I would tell them which drinks or good and what to try. And if they needed anything to call someone they can trust. I would tell them all this because I care about them and they should be mature enough not to abuse alcohol beyond their limits.

Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
Noppe. I was with my best friends and it was only a little. No one get plastered and we were having so much fun in the rain.

I was on a night out, everyone was drinking and there was a bar so it just seemed the natural thing to do.

Not that much, two wkds at the most.

Not.

If you want to drink, fine, but don't get into a drunken state because you'll definately regret it and it can seriously ruin your reputation.
Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
Not for the first time, nope.

Just do it in a safe place. I would recommend not drinking with the opposite sex until you know your limits and aren't stupid about it, cos you could do something you regret that could ruin a reputation or friendship. Also dont do the dog on it and stop drinking when youre drunk. And dont be annoyingly blatant about being drunk, you will piss everyone off despite how cool you feel.

Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
No. I was a bit of a late starter actually. Ive never really been in trouble for drinking and Ive never done anything stupid, so no!

Anything else about this topic I missed.

maybe where people where able to get their drink?(sometimes its still hard, but getting easier with 18yr old friends lol)

just try to be sensible, obviously if you tell someone not to drink chances are they'd drink more than they ever would have. so just dont go too crazy too quickly, allow your body to work up.

nah not at all

Have you ever had alcohol?
Yes, unfortunately

If so, how old were you then?
I was 12.. It was actually about 2 weeks ago

Why did you have alcohol?
I was curious, along with my other friends

How much did you have?
I had barely any beer, and a few shots of vodka (5-7? And that stuff is stronger than I thought.)

Hangover or not?
Unfortunately

How bad?
It was pretty bad, I had to go to school with the hangover.

If you haven't had alcohol, what are your thoughts on it?
I had alcohol but I'll answer this... It tastes terrible, and its not worth it at all.

If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
Don't ever drink it, cause you could definitely die on it, and it will hurt the people around you when you drink. It tastes terrible, and the hangovers are really bad.

Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
I regret drinking alcohol A LOT, and I'm never, ever going to drink again. I'm not going to put any sort of alcohol near my lips.

Re: What do you think about Alcohol? - April 13th 2009, 01:27 AM

I know alcohol is of the form
Code:
R-OH
. There are two lone pairs on the oxygen atom and the COH bond is 109 degrees.
A lot of them are toxic, ethanol (R=CH3CH2) is among the safest. They are used in ester formation and can undergo dehydration to the corresponding alkene. Primary and secondary alcohols can be oxidised using acidified potassium dichromate (VI) (K2Cr2O7) to an aldehyde then a carboxylic acid (under reflux) for primary alcohols and a ketone for secondary alcohols.

Alcohol isn't always what it is cracked up to be. Yeah, drinking at parties is a lot of fun. I know it definitely makes me less tense and more relaxed, but bad things happen more often than you realize. I would tell them this, because I've had my experiences with people getting alcohol poisoning, etc.

Depends on their age. But basically I would just tell them to be responsible about it, only drink if there's someone you can trust with you. And don't make it a daily thing
Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
No, I don't have regrets. However I was really stupid because I ended up going to my friends house, and her dad is a cop who can smell alcohol a mile away.

I think teenage drinking is ridiculous and people any younger than like 18 shouldn't be drinking. I've been to a couple parties where there are high schoolers there and it absolutely disgusts me that people would actually invite high schoolers to parties. They are always the ones who are freaking dumb, overly slutty, and don't know their limits. And people who buy these kids alcohol should think about what they're doing. /rant

Do it legally, but while your young, make the mistakes why your young, and don't be new to it when your older...

First got drunk, 12.
Why did you have alcohol?
Umm, I was at a party with a bunch of older kids, and they kept saying I was immature and scared to try it, so being young and stupid, I proved that i wasn't.
How much did you have?
I think I drank a whole bottle of blue raspberry vodka by myself. yikes.

Never had one

I would say that I don't reccomend it, but I wouldn't tell them not to try it. Why, because I know from experience that if you tell a kid they can't do something, they'll want to do it even more, and they'll sneak around and do it behind your back.
Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
In ways, yes, but nothing bad came of it. And I still to this day haven't met anyone but my boyfriend who can outdrink me. (:

Which is why Continental Europe is awash with teenage binge drinking

It seems to be largely an educational thing, learning to drink wisely with food and in small amounts rather than just going out. Apparently, American and British parents do not seem to instil such values leaving children to pick the values themselves

Have you ever had alcohol?
Yes I have

If so, how old were you then?
When I first tried it I was like 13, but that was like a sip of whatever. I guess the first time I had anything more than that was 14.

Why did you have alcohol?
Because I wanted to know what it was all about, wanted to know what the feeling was. I was feeling down and heard that it could make you feel good so wanted to try it.

How much did you have?
First time I drank anything more than a sip was 2 alcopops.

Hangover or not?
No, wasn't enough at all to get me drunk. Tho I've had some pretty bad hangovers.

How bad?
Being sick, not eating anything, headache.

If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
Don't drink until you're mature enough to understand the effect of it.

No I don't.

Have you ever had alcohol?
Yes

If so, how old were you then?
First time drinking with my friends I was 12 but had a few at family parties and things before.

Why did you have alcohol?
Because I wanted to see what it tasted like, what it did to you.

How much did you have?
That first time with my friends, I had a quarter bottle of vodka I think.
Which was actualy alot considering I was extremely thin at the time and had eaten that day.

Hangover or not?
Nope, I can drink amazing amounts of alcohol without getting a hangover, it's great!
I've only ever had one hangover and that's because I started drinking around 8pm one evening and we kept going till 6am the next day, which was a school day :| Worst day of my life! lol

How bad?
That one hangover was sooo bad. I had a headache, was dehydrated, couldn't concentrate, couldn't eat, felt constantly sick and desperately needed sleep!

If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
Don't let people who've had bad experiences with alcohol put you off, it's not this evil thing that people make it out to be. People only get that attitude towards alcohol when they've used it irresponsibly. As long as you start out slow, keep an eye on how it is affecting you, then stop when you feel it getting too much, you'll be fine. Everything in moderation!

Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?

Not at all. You need to start somewhere, and the sooner you learn your own personal limits, the better.

Well my mother used to put brandy in my bottle to make me sleep when I was little. But drinking properly I was about 9? I used to have a glass of wine every day with my meal anyway. First time I drank to get drunk was probably 13.
Quote:

Because it was nice, adult, sociable and gave me a nice buzzed feeling. It also went well with my meal.

If you mean the first time I drank to get drunk: Then, Because it was fun. Yeah not the most mature attitude I realise, but I was 13. Gimme a break.

When pouring a beer tip the glass on its side, you get less head that way.

I wouldn't give them a lecture because I assume they would (a) already know (most kids do) and (b) wouldn't listen even if I did. I'm not one for forcing help on people when it's not asked for.

Have you ever had alcohol?
Yes.

If so, how old were you then?
15.

Why did you have alcohol?
I was at a party. Everyone was drinking. I thought I'd give it a go.

How much did you have?
Too much.

Hangover or not?
Can't remember

How bad?
Probably not that bad.

If you haven't had alcohol, what are your thoughts on it?
I have and I think it's a stupid thing to do unless you're of age and just drinking socially. Drinking until you vomit is not cool. It's disgusting.

If you could tell a younger family member/friend one thing
about alcohol, what would you say? Why?
Need for alcohol or any other substance is nothing more than a flaw in character. You can't have fun on your own so you need a chemical stimulant. It's pointles. Social drinking to loosen up is fine, but getting smashed and acting like a fool is gross, unattractive and you do things you'll regret. It's not worth it. Have fun naturally in other ways. Once you pick up the bottle, you'll not be able to have real fun again.

Do you ever regret drinking alcohol for the first time?
Yes. It was stupid, pointless and ruined my clean record. Haven't had it since, and won't have it again, though.
