  • i drank more before I was 21 then I do now. I always looked older than I was so i could buy it. Now that I'm 23, I get carded all the time. lol. But having kids has slowed me down a lot so I may have a drink every few months or so. I'm worried that my kids may start drinking before they turn 21 but I plan to have open communication with them and hopefully they will talk to me when they feel the need to drink. If I can't stop them, I would much rather know what they are doing so I can think about their safety.

  • nope. Didn't drink it much AFTER 21 either.

  • No. The fact that it was against the law was enough to deter me. It wouldn't surprise me if my children did, but thank goodness they didn't get in any kind of trouble by it.

  • yes I did. And do yes I do think my kids will as well, I'm not naive most people do before 21.

  • I had some before 21. And my son had a sip of wine. He will be like me. Not really a drinker.

  • Yes I did. Older friends bought it for me. Also, by the time I was 18 I was allowed to have a few beers at family get togethers where we stayed the night (usually camping) I am pretty sure my son will be allowed the same once he is 18

  • Yup I sure did, as far as how I got the alcohol, that was too long ago to remember. My 16 year old has had alcohol, but very little and with us. He's had a glass of wine with dinner or a sip of this or that. Also we were in Mexico and hub and I let him have a beer.
