Yes, I'm 21 and no I don't drink.
Do you think that by having a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other that you actually look cool? Not likely so. I don't understand what you people are getting at? Why is it "fun" to lose control of yourself and your instincts by intoxication? I'm sorry but when I see you behave the way that you do, and at your age, I am appalled and saddened. Ladies, where is your class? Guys, where is your respect? What is so fun about getting completely drunk out of your mind that you don't remember anything the next morning? I guess can't really relate because I've never experienced it but what I see is chaotic and hyperactive, passing out or being so intoxicated that you can hardly move and then when you wake up in the morning you have a horrendous migraine and hangover. Fun? I don't see the fun in that, sorry. That is why even though I am 21 and "of age" to drink socially and legally, I don't. I don't see the point in it, I don't see the fun in it and I sure as heck don't see a reason that I should. Now I'm not saying that drinking alcohol is a sin. If you can drink in moderation and hold your posture and poise then it's no problem but always too much of a good thing is not a good thing. I don't drink at all because I see the danger in it, I've witnessed tragic consequences and I would just rather avoid it altogether. Honestly the stuff does not even tempt me, not even a little bit.
The other night my mom, little sister and her best friend and I were almost hit head on by a drunk driver. Very scary.
I guess I can be kind of "straght laced" (is that what they call it?) and old fashioned when it comes to all this. I love hanging out, going out and having fun but getting hammered and not remembering who you slept with the night before does not sound the least bit appealing to me.
It's amazing the things some people will do and the extreme heights they will go to get a "feeling" only to feel like crap the next day.
