Do you drink alcohol

Do you drink alcohol

AttackHelicpter

Nice try, mom


CrazyWS

Tried when I graduated, tasted bad, waste of money. Never again.


Hunter5865

That just means you haven't found the right type


Gagester303

this guy knows what’s up, you also just have to get used to it. I hated vodka and tequila shots when I first got to college, but now I refuse to drink anything else. Although I do not recommend just taking shots at all, stay sharp kids.


Hunter5865

Lol it takes years of experience to fully achieve full knowledge over alcohol. In all seriousness though, it does take some time to get used to it, you're completely right about that. Personally I'm not much of a shots guy but I can handle a few. Though I have found that alcohol goes best when mixed, that way it goes down easier. That's just my preference, though.


frank_sinatra11

Spirits are ultimately just so much nicer than beer considering the sheer amount of calories that go into certain grogs 😬


SpankyRoberts18

Stick to that. I’m not a teen anymore and I used to think alcohol was gross and a waste of money. Then I found something I liked. Now just regular old nasty beer that I used to think was the worst is pretty nice to me. It’s weird how tastes change but it’s very real. So save yourself some money and don’t try it again


Fit-Platypus-3130

Alcohol drinks me.


turbulance4

Are you from Soviet Russia?


Ordinary_Rutabaga582

First the man takes a drink, then the drink takes the man.


CoruscareGames

This feels oddly profound


Ordinary_Rutabaga582

There's an old Irish saying that goes "A man takes a drink, the drink takes a drink, the drink takes the man." If you have a drinking problem, you just need to avoid drinking period. ... If you're an alcoholic and think you can handle a single drink, you're lying to yourself. [Source](https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19292559)


Fit-Platypus-3130

Yes


PlantBasedEgg

It’s a lot easier than eating it


personthatisapersons

No no he's gotta point


Gtx_tigger

CptFrostie

Damn, took it right out of my mouth


jeankirschteinsgf

LlamaaaLlamaaa

The alcohol?


[deleted]

Eww you puked?


CptFrostie

Yup, alcohol does that


[deleted]

Oh yeah true.


Ep1cman152

No, silly. You take alcohol from a *bottle*.


I_killed_bambi69

jelly shots; they do not make you need to break the seal


WeaselBeagle

Devatator_

Take my upvote and get outa here


BlazeIts

true


monut437

Bro, I'm slavic, do you need further answer?


Suayan_like_sure

Whats the hards alcohol that you have drinked


monut437

Is that even a question? Of course it's vodka.


Suayan_like_sure

How way it


monut437

What?


Suayan_like_sure

Describe how vodka teased and feelet like...


roy20030

In my albeit limited experience, hand sanitizer to both those questions.


pogoxmads

Very accurate


Memesonahigherlevel

It tastes like potato and hand sanitizer lol


MEMEZZ125

Chlorine mixed with hand sanitizer


arguing-man

Drinks have a pretty different taste depending on brand, you can have 2 vodkas and while blindfokded not even realise they are the same type of spirit.


monut437

It was great. It can be a little bitter, but it's the kind of bitter that you want to have. And it also is warming. But, hey, why am I going to describe it when you can just taste it yourself. For the first time, it would be the best if you would mix it with something like cola.


Mensch5

or orange juice it is also tasty to mix with


Suayan_like_sure

I see Thanks for the advice


Cowmunist

Votka and... cola?


monut437

Yes, it's the most basic drink.


Cowmunist

Where i'm from most people drink it with orange juice, sprite or an energy drink, never heard of anyone drinking it with cola, that's mostly for stock, jaeger and wine. But i guess everyone has different tastes.


mango2410

Rakija stronger


Kuzkay

Also Slavic, (20 y.o right now so I'm illegally here) when I was 18 my grandpa pulled out 89% moonshine, that was something to remember, I had enough after one shot. And remember the law. If your (slavic) grandpa asks to drink. You may not refuse


TheCitizen4

80% Strohrum


kycyc

Bruh,we learn how to drink before we learn how to talk and walk: one of my earliest memories is literally drinking beer


bby_celery

here if a baby has colic we give them like a pinky dipped in schnapps or vodka to calm them down. idk it works


Dav_Overlord69

Finally someone who understands


-temporary_username-

I'm currently pouring myself some of the 21 years old scotch I got myself for my birthday lol. Drinking whiskey that is older than yourself is a hobby that gets more expensive every year.


Suayan_like_sure

Ngl that sounds fun


-temporary_username-

Yeah, them gaelic and celts sure know their booze making.


MEMEZZ125

Irish drinking age is 18 but most alcoholics here started way earlier


Dickless-dick

Is it because you perfected the craft?


MEMEZZ125

No we're depressed


TechnicalExpert-

Fucking rent prices. Feel ya


Dickless-dick

Fair


Bucket-Of-Chicken

I love being Irish


toevapor

I also bought whiskey for my birthday 5 days ago lol


-temporary_username-

Your birthday is five days after mine then. And a year.


NeededPrivacy

I don’t think I’m old enough to drink lol


original_username20

> 14 In my country, you are. As long as it's not hard liquor and your parents are watching


pepek08

Germany?


ChristianInWales

Pretty much and country, in the UK, you can drink at home from the age of five, and then 15 in pubs, with a meal, but it is not common practice. Then no restrictions from 18. Edit: 14 in pubs not 15 nor 16, law is vague but it is 14.


jellyjamjungle

“Hard day at kindergarten, huh, champ?”


TeamRocketScrub

Lmao I’ll redeem that free award for ya


Soldaan

Five? Hold up just let me get my five year old a vodka cruiser brb


[deleted]

It's 16 with a meal in England unless they changed it recently


razor2811

Germany is 16+


Aussie_Beast

That’s the same in Australia, my parents don’t let me drink much alcohol but if we have guests over sometimes I’m allowed a bit of something


Suayan_like_sure

You will be in year Probably

Suayan_like_sure

Manisa8338

Fellow non-alcoholic beer enjoyer


fl00r_gang_yeah

Suayan_like_sure

But when I was 15 my dad said you can if you want and also teached me how not to over drink (My dad makes his own alcohol and I drink from that)


fl00r_gang_yeah

Beastmodeisonn

Dav_Overlord69

Have you ever considered: *getting it in other ways*


NogaraCS

But does kid follow that rule ? In France you can't buy unless you're 18 but I started drinking at 15


CyberKid2008

In Canada it’s 19 for smoking and drinking but people still do both underage even at my age


gs_batta

Well that doesnt rly stop you...


rhythm-bush-species

I've tasted it but not actually drank it


MEMEZZ125

U could have swallowed if u remain below the local legal limit it isn't illegal


Laggingduck

Maybe it just tasted like shit, or maybe he likes his liver lol


Mensch5

I am a 17 yo german, so yes I do and I like it.


-CommunistDoggo-

Man darf in Deutschland bereits ab 14 schon Bier trinken, wenn es ein Erziehungsberechtigter kauft, währenddessen man in der USA bis zum 21. Lebensjahr warten muss.


Mensch5

Jo, das ist echt ich will nicht sagen übel, aber in Deutschland hat man dann schon früher die Gelegenheit, sich auch in geschütztem Rahmen an Alkohol heran zu tasten.


-CommunistDoggo-

Es reicht schon aus wenn man aussieht, als wäre man älter als 18. Sorgfältig kontrolliert wird das nicht. Ich finde auch das 14 zu jung ist, da Alkohol ein Kind wahrscheinlich schneller süchtig macht.


Actually_Litterally

Absolut bei dir. Ich wär sogar für jeglichen Alkoholverkauf ab 18. Es ändert sich halt kaum was weil man so oder so an Alkohol rankommt wenn man will.


-CommunistDoggo-

Da stimm ich dir teilweise zu. Du hast beim so oder so ans Alkohol rankommen Recht, aber das wird halt um einiges erschwert.


Actually_Litterally

Wär ja nichts schlimmes dabei meiner Meinung nach. Ich seh einfach in meinem Umfeld sehr viele für die Alkohol schon zum Lebensstil gehört, und das schon seit sie 13-14 Jahre sind. Ich finde Alkohol einfach Kulturell viel zu stark akzeptiert.


-CommunistDoggo-

Ich kannte mal nen Jungen der war stark Alkoholabhängig, da seine Eltern sich kaum um in kümmerten und dachten das Bier usw. Ungefährlich ist. Das Kind ist mittlerweile in so ner Therapie oder sowas in der Art. Das ist bestimmt kein Einzelfall das sowas passiert, da Alkohol viel zu normal angesehen wird, nur weils legal ist. Hanf ist deutlich Ungefährlich als Alkohol, wird aber als böse angesehen, weil es illegal ist.


Mensch5

Naja, süchtig werden tut man nich nicht wenn man 1 oder 2 Bier drinkt, hingegen sehe ich ein größeres Problem darin, dass manche Leute ihr Grenzen möglicherweise nicht kennen und sich damit dann ihre Gesundheit zerschießen. Denn wie immer gilt: Die Menge macht das Gift. In dieser Hinsicht finde ich Cannabis auch deutlich unbedenklicher, weil dich zu viel nicht umbringt, sondern dich ja nur einschlafen lässt. (Meine Meinung, will neimanden beeinflussen.)


-CommunistDoggo-

Du hast recht. Ich meinte aber eher so, wenn die Eltern oft Bier geben und wie ich bereits sagte hast du Recht an beiden Punkten (Die Menge macht da Gift und das mit Hanf) ich Stimme dir bei beidem zu. Ich frage mich generell, wieso Alkohol von vielen als weniger gefährlich gesehen wird als Cannabis, obwohl Alkohol für mehr Todesfälle sorgte (bei dem mit den Todesfällen bin ich nicht mir ganz sicher, ist mehr so Halbwissen).


Mensch5

Mhm, daher habe ich mir selber auch die Grenze gesetzt maximal 1 pro betrunken zu werden und dann auch nur mit ausreichendem zeitlichem Abstand zu trinken um den Körper nicht zu überlasten. Naja, wie auch immer, hat mir Spaß gemacht die Unterhaltung und wünsche dir noch ein nettes Rest-Wochenende.


-CommunistDoggo-

Ging mir genauso! Wünsche ich dir auch und ich gehe meine letzten 2 Stunden Ferien jetzt genießen xD


Orange_Hedgie

Ich bin durcheinander… IS THIS ^ EVEN ACTUAL GERMAN? MY GERMAN LESSONS ARE FAILING ME


_Kartoffel

Well you said... "I am confused" but kinda in an old timey way. Now a days verwirrt is used; durcheinander has sort of fallen out of fashion unless in some specific circumstances, but they are hard to explain... It's one of those things with a language that you just know if you speak the language


Coprowank

Not OP but I'm channelling the power of my German lessons too and I can deduce; That you are a potato.


_Kartoffel

Yes made that my nick about 8 years ago. I mostly go by "Käärme" (finnish for Snake) on the internet but reddit doesn't have name changes so here I'm stuck with this old name of mine


-CommunistDoggo-

*ANGRY DUOLINGO OWL NOISES*


memezmaker

I am 14 italian lol


SheriffWoody69

Is the drinking age there the same as Germany or is it different?


memezmaker

Nah we just ignore it :) it's tradition


SheriffWoody69

Hell yeah man

Nervous-Ad7617

Strongest thing I ever drunk was a couple of margaritas me and my gf stole from a barista on a cruise ship, and got slightly drunk while playing mini golf


Suayan_like_sure

What adventures life you have I'm jealous


Xyeetmeister420X

Damn I'm English and in a fairly nice area even so it's not uncommon for 13,14 year olds to get blackout drunk


gwa999

Man I miss sitting in a field or on the beach all night til sunrise with my high school friends and just getting absolutely fucking wasted


Xyeetmeister420X

Yeah going to the chippy them heading up a hill or into a random forest and all your mates tell and you tell Ur parents you at someone's house and just staying in the woods all night is the sickest shit


gumbaeerrrree

Ezmiho

Same here. Not interested.


Suayan_like_sure

Why not


skatingduckie

family of addicts + genetics = not good


Ok_Midnight1147

Same, lot of pressure to do so tho cuz I’m Mexican


Hazel-NUTS

I'm on the same boat. I'm the balck sheep of the family. Everybody drinks alcohol but me. I just vibe with my water.


Ok_Midnight1147

I feel you, cold water or room temp👀


Hazel-NUTS

Room temp >>> cold water 95% of the time. The 5% percent is from hot summers after playing sports.

AtomicPikkle

Hey same


zenithpns

In my experience of friends who go to parties with a free flow of alcohol, it does no one any good. Just creates a toxic culture where those who ain't drinking become uncomfortable and those who are egg each other on until they go off the rails.


Jolene04

I always hate this question so much. Like literally why WOULD I start drinking something known to be harmful and addictive with virtually no benefit. Everyone in my life at this point including my own parents is asking why I never want to drink.


OkayOpenTheGame

Because alcohol is the most overrated thing in the history of the world; there is nothing redeeming about it whatsoever. Why does someone always have to be shamed for not wanting any?


N26_real

Good Samaritan right here you have my respect


30p87

I wish you good luck


Redditloolwhousesit

Percy-Dragneel

I’m proud of you


nuggermcgee701

Well. I drank some when i like 3 because i thought my dad was drinking soda.


MEMEZZ125

Can we get an f for this man's liver.


NightmareEyy

nope


Natebobate

No, have a history of alcoholism in my family so I don't plan on it.


darkfire5806

I have drank but its not as fun as most people say


Merk0411

You just gotta drink with the right people, in the right environment. It really can be a blast.

No

10HorsedSizedDucks

No, alcohol is only really useful in social situations and I haven’t been in one of those social situations for a while


Carguysnotfound

i absolutely love your username


the_loz3r

No and never. My family has and will forever be in an endless loop of fucking up their lives because of alcohol and learned that since I was 8 and plan to change that for myself.


Ljecker31

No, I don’t drink, vape, or smoke. Even when I’m of legal age in my country (21), I don’t plan on drinking. Along with that I may say something that could spark a war or agreement. Girls who are underage that drink, smoke, vape, or do weird stuff like drugs, it’s an immediate turn off Anna if I thought they were cute before, I don’t anymore.


Kyllera

Same for guys, it just makes them look... dirty? I don't know how to explain..


Fathorseenjoyer

No


Chillaxdude1

No. Alcohol kills braincells and I have only 2 braincells left, so I cannot afford to lose them lol.


rmayerhofer0294

Don’t worry, you get them back after a good nights rest, just a bit damaged.


A_Tin_Of_Love

No I vape it


meme-addict117

I snort it through my nose, parry that you fucking casual


A_Tin_Of_Love

Well I began but chugging but that was far too pedestrian, then the IV drip kept getting stuck in doorways, and now I think squirting it in my ear is the dignified way to go!


Saturnian_Hunter

I absorb it via osmosis like the cellular kingpin I am.


IronWolf427

No. Stuff smells terrible


Wu_tangkillaBees

It taste terrible as well


illgrowupnextsummer

not really, depends what u buy but yeah some does taste like shite


Which_Presentation41

Do you OP?


Tarani5

Never.


luucid-

I don’t drink it but I have a few times but I don’t like it


AddytheNerd

I do not drink alcohol due to the impacts it could have on my still growing body. While it sounds corny, it is very true. I don't want to stunt any muscle growth and height I could gain. I am also ftm and working out for a more masculine body so that I feel more comfortable in my own skin


RileyTheBerry

Never. I don't really plan on drinking much anyways. I've seen what alcohol can do to people.


NukeXxEaglexX

Yes I’m an addict. 👍

No, to young and don’t like the idea of being drunk. Also heard it tastes bad.


OiBoiHasAToy

no i live in america


Harman-PS

No and fuck alchohol. I am not giving up health just to look cool in front of some friends


DazedAndTrippy

I mean that's not the point for everyone. You shouldn't let people peer pressure you though so thate a good rule of thumb. You'd be surprised the amount of adults that get peer pressured, I genuinely thought that shit didn't still happen.


Either_Practice4646

That fact that you think this is why people drink shows that you don't know enough about alcohol and the reasons people use substances in general to make a judgement on it.


EthanBaxley10

I don’t think ppl do it to look cool buddy


PeaNumerous1832

Ist not about looking cool. Ist just fun to be drunk.
