Were drunk? For me it was when I was fifteen, I had found myself accepted into a circle of friends who were really popular in school and I had been invited to a birthday party, it was without a doubt the best thing that had happened to me. I told my parents that I was staying at a friends house overnight, which was true but I just did not tell them that there was to be a party there! My friends brother bought us the alcohol, we bought three great big bottles of martini extra dry, this was what everyone was drinking. I had a great time for about an hour, but of course I had never drunk before and so within about an hour I had slid down the wall in the kitchen, no longer able to support myself. I then lost the feeling in my face which I still remember to this day, it was so bizarre I kept asking people if my chin had fallen off, because I could not feel it. Then I lost the power of speech and it was all over, I just went to sleep. It was horrible, because the boy that I had a huge crush on was there to see me in all my glory LOL. Oh well I slept the party away and had a rather large headache the next day. But it did put me off drinking for at least another year! So when was the first time you were drunk? Tell me your first drink stories please!!

I took my first drink at 16 just to be a big girl but it was just one drink, I never really got drunk ever because I would always get sick before I would get drunk.

I don't remember my first time really getting drunk, I know I have a few stories similar to yours. However, the following are 2 of my favorite drunk stories: It was New Year's Eve. I'd broken up with my first serious boyfriend just 2 weeks prior. I was still an emotional wreck. I invited over a male friend I'd known a couple of years, and began drinking before he arrived. The next thing I know it's 5am and I'm asleep in bed with my pj's on inside out. I called my friend in the morning and asked if he'd ever arrived the night before. He then tells me how he showed up around 11. Shortly there after I became emotional over my ex, and cried my heart out. Then at the exact stroke of midnight, I lie down on the floor and vomited everywhere. I apparently then got up and showered without washing my face or hair, then lie down on the floor in my bathrobe and vomited some more. He covered me with a blanket and left. Want to know the best part of that story? About 5 months later I began dating that friend. Here's my 2nd story: Same friend... well boyfriend at that time... his best friend's girlfriend was my best friend... confused yet? Ok, well she came over to my house to complain how her boyfriend was always hanging out with my boyfriend and never spending time with her. The 2 guys were together that night. Well I decided to call my boyfriend and tell him to come over. I guess I was being a show off. He ditched his friend and came right down. I rubbed it in her face for a bit (what an awful friend I was). He wasn't there a half an hour when I passed out from having had too much to drink. (Wasn't a great girlfriend either... I'd just turned legal drinking age). Know the best part of that story... other than the fact that I had a good boyfriend? I am now married to that man.

I wanted to add... It is now 7 years later after these stories took place... I may have a drink once or twice a year, and it's never enough to get me drunk. It just makes me sleepy now

it was when i turned 21. i was actually at work when a couple of my coworkers wanted to treat me to a drink. they told me to not act as if i were drunk, but when i got to work my boss could tell becuase i couldnt stop talking and laughing about nothing. luckily my boss an i were really close because he just laughed it off and then he told me to sit down and be quiet. and nothing was harmed at that time i was working for a telemarketing company so my job was to answer the phones, just incase someone was thinking i could have hurt myself.

I have never gotten drunk. I even tried this past weekend. We were at my friend's house and I had 3 16oz screwdrivers and didn't even get tipsy. My hubby is happy because we finally have found something that I can drink when we go out.

I got first (and last) drunk when I was in first year in college. It was Sunday after my ROTC class in my University and my friends invited me to have some drinks. Since it was still early around 1pm, I said yes and we went to my friend's house. We drank some gins (that was popular during that time) and I didn't realize that I drank too much of it. It was 6pm and told them that I need to go home because I didn't inform my mother. I was really dizzy that time that I need someone to support me to stand. Since my friends know where I lived, they drove me home without knowing it because I fall asleep. I just wake up the other day I was in my room. When I went in the kitchen, that's the time my mother scolded me.

I was fourteen and I clubbed together with some friends to buy some cider before going to alocal disco and I don't think I even had that much but was violently sick and felt extremely ill for the whole of the following day. I never drink cider now at all for that reason. I think like you I avaided for about a year and then it was Cinzano and lemonade from my dads bar and a few friends but I was ill just silly and giggly so I have always drunk a little since then. Ellie :D
