Wow, I feel like a grade A alcoholic reading through this thread!! Started drinking when I was 18 because I looked too young to drink before that. The amount varies from week to week...lets take this weekend....Friday night, had 6 bottles of a lovely czech lager called Boheme. Saturday night, went to a wedding and drank...erm...a lot. Sunday, nice quiet night, 3 cans of carling.
Hi, my name is Aaron and apparently I'm an alcy! ha ha.
This may clear things up...I'm from England! ha ha.
I remember being a kid and my uncle making take small sips of heineken. First time really drank was at 19 (wedding reception thingy), but I never got addicted. I rarely ever drink, often going months, and even then like a sip of scotch or a few ounces of fruity crap. I drink coffee almost every day though.
First started drinking normally was probably about 14/15, but couldn't get served anywhere so wasn't that regular. Started being able to get served in a few local pubs at 16, as did my mates, so that became once/twice a week. Only really picked up when i started to go to clubs and eventually went to uni. Was pretty hard on for the first year at uni, then went t-total for year, then lived in Sweden and started drinking again. Wouldn't say i drink that much, but i do like a glass of wine or a beer with dinner.
I had little sips in my early teens. When I was sixteen I drank for the first time with my friends at a party to get drunk. My junior and senior year of high school I was "depressed" and drank every night if I was with someone else or not. First two years of college I drank a lot, probably every night with my roommate and other random people in my dorm. This year I have been having maybe three beers a week.
