    kids should NEVER touch alcohol or illegal drugs. i just thought it would be a good idea to make that point...even though it's the obvious...because of my prior message. no offense, tech...i thought we were all adults. & that's right, vicious...alcohol is a dangerous drug.

    I'm 14 and i've drunken like heaps and not gotten drunk ...much...at a few parties with people who are older than me which i go to with a friend of mine who is my age, well, my friend didn't wanna drink and was tryin to stop me from repeatedy mixing orange juice and goon. Before that i was drinking pre-mixed vodka. And this mexican guy with mexican clothes kept giving me beers... Hey, once I went to a party on a Sunday night and had to go to school on the Monday and that day for school i wore my uniform instide out becuase I was still a bit tipsy ... what was I talking about again?

    Well I say drinking (alcohol) is bad and should not be done at all...same for drugs, caffiene, and all other manner of unhealthy substances.

    I'm addicted to PC games and thats enough for me.

    I went to the bar last night after my grad ceremony. I had three beers (microbrews) with my wife and some friends. I drank water for three hours, drove quite safely home, and had a wonderful evening with my wife. All in all, it was a good time... the beer tasted good with our food... and I regret none of it.

    L@D is correct... moderation and responsibility are important aspects in all things. At 28 years old, I have had many hangovers in my life and done many risky things not involving drugs or alcohol. If you can abstain from dangerous situations... more power to you, but I will tell you what I look for in seasoned people... experience. I will not teach my children not to drink... but I will teach them to be careful, responsible, and respectful. I will not deny them the experience.

    For everything good in life, there is an equally important bad aspect. Happiness is contrasted appropriately with sadness, bliss with pain, meloncholy with anger, etc. To deny any is to lead a sheltered life. I do not honor sheltered people........ and I never will.

    drinking responsibly is not a big deal to me, if you know your limits and drink responsibly and know what you're doing it's not THAT bad. I mean I much rather drink than do weed or anything like that even though some of my friends say weed is better than alcohol I will probably never agree with this.

    LMAO beats doing weed to me, as long as we do it responsibly and not over do it, it should be ok, my new plan is to drink a little bit but not enough to get drunk.

    "anyone who drinks is still as immature as a kid!"

    You want to what i think? You are a fool.

    I say **** it, life is about experiencing things, thats all you get to do, our 80 years or so of life is over in a flash, and thats it.

    So do everything, try everything, of course know the risks, know the consequences for your actions, and decide what you want to do.

    Everyone sets their own risks in life; you might tell me that you don't take any risks, but thats a complete lie, everytime you get into a car, you're taking a risk, everytime you walk in the street you're taking a risk. We each set how much risk we wish to undertake and for what purpose.

    People go travelling in Africa and can wind up dying of tropical diseases, people get killed in car crashes.

    You never know when you might get struck down. Life live while you can, thats whats i say.

    Of course don't be stupid and damage anyone else.

    live YOUR life, but alcohol ...

    k, u can live your own life, and expreince anything you won't so long as it doesn t affect annyone else. alcohol does. u say drink responsibly, but if you drink a bit to much and you get drunk, then no matter how responsible you are sober, you could easily step into a car, and kill some kid. if you get drunk and you start taking things out on freinds/family, then you affect them, the only responsible drinking, is in a isolated, padlocked from the outside, rubber room. (like the ones in instatutes.)

    >you might tell me that you don't take any risks,

    security is what we might seek. but just the same, life is fun and you can do whatever you like, go whereever you like, and you can really help others too... and don't ever decide you're over the hill either... whenever you feel your lifes a bore, just... hmm... join the military, they will use you as much as your abilities [and desires, if you place high enough...] are useful...

    clyde, those opening sentences might have prompted me to wonder why you were so reckless... but after your summation [and reassurance] beware... reckless introduction is reckless nonetheless... be it insignficant... oh and by the, please refrain from the usage of asterisks in your post, my mod stick is by my side...

    have a nice day!

    Bollocks, doesn't matter how drunk I am, i'll NEVER EVER, drive when i'm over the limit.

    "if you get drunk and you start taking things out on freinds/family, then you affect them, the only responsible drinking, is in a isolated, padlocked from the outside, rubber room. (like the ones in instatutes.)"

    That depends on the person, IF they affect other people in a negative way then I agree, that's bad, they shouldn't drink if thats the case, but not everyone is like that.

    Sorry about the asterisks, (bleh down with censorship! :P), about reckless... reckless is in the eye the beholder, as I said everyone sets their own level of risk. One can minimise the risks at the expense of losing the experiences, likewise one can maximise the experiences at the cost of incredable risk. We all set are own levels somewhere inbetween:

    If i want to become a grand prix racer, I know, i might end up like Senna, thats a risk I accept, when I parachute, I know there is a (extremely unlikely) risk that the chute won't open, or that i might somehow screw up, the same with bungee jumping, and the same with alchohol/any other drug.
