When Did You First Drink? (Page 1)

When do you first remember consuming alchohal? I'm 15 and it seems like I'm the only kid I know who doesn't drink... >_>

hrm first time ever? Every year as long as I could remember I would be able to take one sip of my dads beer on new years. It was just to show me it was nasty lol. Really consumed alcohol...I was like 17 at my aunts wedding reception and they started giving me shots....I became the life of the party Smile

First time: 15. I went to a party with my friends and sipped a wine cooler if that counts. My mom found and I was grounded for 2 months. Smile

I didn't drink again until the night before graduation my senior year.
Don't worry, you aren't missing out on much. I would go to parties but only so I could keep an eye on my friends or pick them up and walk/drive them home, the parties didn't look like much fun especially when you are young(a lot of puking) so you might as well wait.

I was 14 or 15 when I had my first drink. I had a friend over & we snuck a couple cans of my mom's beer up into my room! Didn't drink again after that until I was 17 or so!

Tried it around 5 (did NOT get drunk, my parents wanted me to taste how gross it was so I wouldn't drink because I kept asking them for a sip).

At 13 or 14 I got drunk.

Technically 14 - Was at a friends house and she had stolen some of her dad's beer - and she dared me to drink it - but there was a catch - I had to mix it with milk (was the only think in the refridgertor to drink) - let me tell you that was enough of an experience to put me off drinking for about 3 years. (I drank half of it and puked it all up within 5 mins ROFL)

Then I drank when I was 17. Not often cause my parents were pretty strict on me attending parties. Then drank a fair amount at 19-20yrs old - now I rarely drink. Maybe once every year and a half.

It's not a big deal if you don't drink but I can see how it can be seen as one, especially if all your friends drink and you are the "odd man out" so to speak. I wouldn't worry about it too much - there are probably a lot of other people in your school who don't drink or have never drank.

Anyway hopefully it helps knowing you're not alone!

Take Care

You aren't the only kid who doesn't drink. I'm 18 and I've never voluntarily had a drink of alchohal. My mother told me a white russian was chocolate milk when I was 12, and I took a sip only to spit it into the sink. Drunk wench.

Anyway, drinking isn't worth it and if you do start drinking do so in MODERATION!!!

Well I'm not too proud of myself because I went through a period of time where I put down everyone I knew who did drink. That was seriously wrong of me.

Did anyone else notice this is in a parenting section?

I had a mug of beer when I was 6? I don't remember, I know I saw porn earlier then that....

ANYWHOOO, so uuh yea, drinking. My dad has a little troupe that did performances for traditional korean drumming and dance and they were celebrating after one of their performances in my house. They were on this big table and were drinking beer. I think in all the commotion, nobody noticed (or nobody cared =( ) and I walked my wee little butt there thinking it was Korean tea. It was one of those big mugs too, and I drank about half of it before I started to throw up and cry. Those were a few good minutes I spent in the bathroom =/. Then I had a sip of wine at 15, spit it out and tossed it. I don't drink period, even though I'm in one of NYs largest party schools. I need my mind focused! Who knows what I'll do under the influence. I get curious now and then, what sort of drunk I'd be.
