    Underage Drinking

    This is a thread about underage drinking and if it is ok. It encompasses more than that though. All the issues, no bringing drugs into it though. That's a whole separate issue. Though I am 99.99 percent sure this has been made before, I am also 99.99 percent sure it hasn't been made in the last month. Asking this cause I just got served a drink by my mom [I am 17]. But I am by no means an alcoholic or a drug addict. But some people I know are, and they started to drink earlier than me. I am also not condoning underage drinking.drug use. What are your thoughts, opinions, reasonings?

    Re: Underage Drinking

    I see no reason why it's wrong. Underage drinking is fine. I don't drink alcoholic beverages though.

    It's when you drink too much that's when the issue changes.

    Re: Underage Drinking

    I don't believe it is wrong. As long as it's for an occasion. (Any kind of family gathering birthday's, reunion etc.)
    I have been drinking since I was 10 ( I lived in Philippines at the time)
    But honestly I wouldn't call my self an alcoholic. I am a social drinker, and like to get drunk and bond with my family. It was a way for use to loosen up around each other and really express our feeling's. Made us closer in the long run.
    BTW I am 21 now and inebriated at the moment due to the fact it was my sister's birthday.

    Re: Underage Drinking

    Considering there is no federal drinking age in the US, states could decide what age is appropriate. But the federal government bribes them out with money for roads, so all states established the 21 years of age law.

    Re: Underage Drinking

    i dont think its wrong, just dont abuse it like faceless said, but its also a risk in itself, because people handle things in different ways, some may become an alcoholic some may not care for it much.

    usually someone becomes an alcoholic because they think thats the way they can solve there probs, but it makes it worse.

    im only 20 lol but when i do drink, i become like rock lee when he battled kimmi

    literally, i pop fireworks during winter, ( i do that drunk or not lol)

    i challenge any and everyone to spar!

    i burst random words but i always no my limit, i watch myself from getting to drunk and i only drink sometimes. maybe five to eight times a year. i dont really like it.

    cool!!!!

    and so we can safely say that the age is not the issue here i guess... but it is how people would manage their drinking issues i guess...

    Really, no offence at all, but from Finnish point of view what you say is wierd. In here, practically no one doesn't drink just for occasion or a few drinks now and then. Here teen usually start at age of 15-16 drinking booze, their aim to get drunk. Now I'm not proud of that but what I and you are talking about are to completely different things.

    So there no wrong at all what you guys are saying, a little bit of wrong in my coyntry's case, but I'm not judging it completely as I have done it since teen and still doing it. Am I alcoholic'? Hell no. That brings me to the next point:

    ^this. In NB you shouldn't even talk about alcoholism when you talk about underrage/young adults drinking. As few have mentioned the word 'alcoholism' but really there's more to it than gettin wasted 4 times a month. Don't use the word too easily if you even aren't a normal partier.

    But as long the drinking doesn't affect to your school, working etc and you're not under 16..it's fine to get wasted and enjoy life.

    That when we talk about underage drinking we should make a difference on drinking and TRULY drinking (getting wasted). 'Cause totally two different things

    And the second point is that people should not include alcoholism in this thread. I can guarentee there's not a single alcoholic here in NB.

    okay.. in my point of view.. when the thread starter asked his questions... I perceived that he is asking if underage drinking must be allowed or the like and since he also said that his mom served him a drink by the age of 17... and that's where i based my answer... for me it's ok to taste an alcohol at a young age (since i started at 12 and hell yeah... I was wasted at my first attempt to drink) but i preferred it to be started at the age of 16 ideally if we are talking about getting wasted...


    and on the second one.... ALCOHOLISM have different levels per se... it varies on how much a person gotten himself to be dependent on alcohol...so I cant guarantee if there is or if there is no one who is alcoholic here...

    Yeah good points.

    I think the meaning of alcoholic is defined as in a person who drinks every day. Carries booze in his pocket. Starts drinking first thing in the morning. Takes it to work with him. Is truly dependant.

    yeah... that's really alcohol dependence or alcohol abuse... depending on the drinkers intention... and its sad to say that it can incline people to commit crimes or more so ever to destroy themselves

    true. And the wors part is, it's usually inherited and in the genes of the family. My dad and grandmother were alcoholics and I am used to drink alot. It gots worse sometimes but I truly sometimes wonder the fact that I have the "gene" of it in my family.

    actually if i remember it right... genes can boost a person's level of alcoholism.. but for me... aside from our own thinking... social factors really contribute a lot... for example if i was raise in a family where alcohol is not a big deal then it will lead me to be expose to such early age drinking not just for social occasions... and it will be strengthen by what we call peer pressure.. but definitely at the end of the day...we are still the one to decide whether to be dependent on it or not... but... it's not that EASY to resist.. based on my experience, if i may say
