I first get drunk when I am 17, I drunk with my friends to celebrate my birthday. Since that was my first time I drunk a lot without knowing the effect until I get tipsy. How about you?

I was 16 when I had my first drunken experience and it didn't feel very pleaant. I went home and thought I could hide it from my parents, but they saw what I looked like. Next thing I was lying on my bed and the ceiling started spinning. My dad came into my room and he was very sympathetic as by now I was in a panic. I was sick then went to sleep. Next morning was a different story. I got a good telling off from my dad for allowing myself to come home in that state and I was lucky I had not been picked up by the police... and on and on and on... I then stopped drinking for a long time, and after that got a little light-headed from time to time, and drunk too much very rarely.

I am 34 years old and have never been drunk - nor do I desire to be. I grew up with a wet bar in my house. For those that don't know, a wet bar is a bar with a sink. *grins*. We had hundreds of bottles of liquer. Reason? Mom bartended and my Dad was a police officer. Once a month, my parents would host a night where fellow officers (off duty of course), would come by for a shift party. Anyways, so I grew up with all that liquer around and never once had a desire to drink any. I have drank in the years since, but I always knew "enough was enough". I drink about once a year, if that. I never drink out, in public - only in my home. I never fancied the "morning after" - throwing up, headaches, etc. Not my idea of fun in the least.

Quite unusual but I'm not into drinking. Thought I'm not ignorant about it and no one is preventing me to drink but I don't find it yummy,, lol.. I do had a sip when I was in college but not in my life that I got drunk or tipsy ever.

The first time I got drunk was when I was in Germany this summer. I'm 19, so it was legal there for me to order without parents. The experience sucked. I would much rather have been high. I didn't have more than 3/4 drinks and I was nearly knocking others drinks off the table every five minutes going to the bathroom. I was terribly tipsy and finally, after smoking some excellent strawberry hookah, I resigned to bow before the porcelein god and throw up my pizza and booze.

I am not into drinking but I had one bad memory about it. When I was in the third year, they mixed brandy to the orange juice. I loved the taste so I kept coming back. Oh it was a disgust. I got drunk and I acted wildly like I hate all the people around me.

I was 18 and I was living out side of my parents home. I was drinking slow gin with koolaide. Sounds gross to me now. I gots so sick I did get drunk after that you would have thought I would have learned from the first hang over. No it took several more hang overs before I learned I did not like the hang overs. LOL

The first time I got drunk I was also 17. I was at a friends house and we were drinking the pre mixed Long Island Teas. Since that was my first time really drinking I ended up getting pretty drunk. But I remembered everything about it and never blacked out or anything awful like that. I just remember sitting there talking like crazy and acting like an idiot.

I never got that far before because I am a chicken but maybe someday. I got a little drunk once when my husband took me out for our anniversary.

I was only 12 or 13 years old the first time I got drunk. I was taken to a wedding by my parents and allowed to have a glass of champagne for the toast. I got the taste for it and went around the tables, finishing off all the half empty glasses. Boy was I ever in trouble for that one.

I think I got drunk when I was 19 during my college days. it was a drinking session with some of my closed college friends, all guys. It was a horrible experience for me. In fact, I vomit for at least 3 times and I slept for the next day.

Well now I am going to sound like a real hooligan! When we were 14 we decided to have a drink for our Christmas Dance at school! My friend got drunk and sick so we were all pretty scared - she had drank more than the rest of us and I think it scared us off for a while! xxx
