Okay, so I was lurking in the WAYT thread today, and saw a conversation that worried me a little.
You know who you all are.
The conversation was about alcohol and drinking and getting drunk.
When the people participating in the conversation were around my age, 13 - 14.
Last time I checked, the legal age to drink was 21.
Now, I'm not being a "tattle-tale" since I'm not naming names, but you guys worried me a bit.
At 13, you shouldn't be drinking alcohol, or getting drunk or craving vodka.
I'm not trying to sound like your mother, and I'm not scolding you.
But, its not right.
Underage drinking is illegal and ridiculous.
I haven't touched a drop of alcohol and I won't until my 21st birthday.
Seriously, I'm not trying to make you guys mad at me.
I just don't want to see you guys as alcoholics, sick, ill or hungover and regretting it.
Just...be responsible and think about your decisions please?

I agree with some of what that says, but not everybody was that young, and drinking doesn't make someone irresponsible.

I wasn't saying that drinking makes someone irresponsible.
I was saying at 13, you shouldn't be drinking.
I'm sorry if I didn't make myself clear.

Ah, I agree with you Monty.

I mean, I am also young and I haven't touched alcohol. Some of the people here do need to think, before they act. It could be really scary if it turns into a real thing, so guys, think.

I also agree with you Mel, but excessive drinking could be a problem.

I only took one sip. I haven't gotten drunk yet & I most likely never will.

My dad was a heavy drinker & he had to quit or he'd be really messed up so I won't do it as much. I'll do it at parties but not until I'm older.

I can see what you mean by the one sip.
That's fine, and its fine if its a religious reason.

Edit: My siblings are all over 21 years old and they do drink alcohol at our family parties.
I understand that.

It's fine; maybe if you were only talking to one or two people, you could show concern privately next time... I also don't think that the law should be 21, but that's another conversation :roll:. Just because someone's 21 doesn't mean they use alcohol more responsibly than an 17-year-old. I do agree though, that middle school is too young, especially with the way society is taught to treat alcohol.

I agree, but if it turns into every hour drinking...

I'm sorry if I sounded rude by posting this.
But I had to get it out there.
If I insulted anybody, please tell me, because I will close this thread and it will never have to be talked about again.

I don't think you were rude at all. It's the law either way.

People that think laws shouldn't exist or should be modified are the ones guilty of breaking the laws in the first place. And will go out of their way to make people that DO follow the law feel like outsiders and outcasts.

i'm not insulted, because i'm old enough to know i've always been responsible with it and i know our culture is to blame for many of peoples' views of alcohol.
but if someone who sees this knows they were being specifically talked about instead if being talked to privately about any concern, they might be a little taken aback...



edit: I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting changes in the law if someone has logical reasons for opinion...that's what democracy is for

Yeah, I was kinda worried about that too. I'm 17 and I've never been drunk. I don't drink at all really. The last time I had any alcohol was like 2 years ago and my grandma gave me half her beer.
I just think its kinda pointless to get drunk. At least thats what I've learned from experiences of people I know.

And I don't think it was rude either. I thought it was really brave of you to say all that.

You weren't rude Monty, it was necessary, and some of us are glad you said it. Just to get it out in the open.
