yaay I finally got thumbed down :) I probably shouldnt be happy about that so now you guys are going to thumb this one down :/ humph.. this isn't good..
To all those who said drop it.. Ever smelled anything alcoholic? There's a smell. Water doesn't have a smell. It would be immediately apparent that it's actually just water if the person dropped it. I say they should go get someone to buy some of the same alcohol and fill the bottle back up.

if you're too young to buy your own alcohol, then chances are you too young to be drinking it. they don't put an age limit just to be mean, they do it BC you're brains not fully developed till your 25.
it's legal here for me but I'm pretty sure there's a law that makes it younger where if you drink controlled amounts and are not in public. i don't know I just heard that somewhere. but still the generation has changed . I know people 2 years younger than me (I'm 14) that have drank. everyone drinks. I actually don't know one person my age that hasn't drank. the only problem here is how OP drank it. she did something stupid that takes common sense . of course it's going to taste like water. she created that timebomb herself. do it at a party and sleepover at someone's house or just don't drink at all. problem solved.
54- Fair point, I was simply pointing out that whilst we're all made fully aware of the effects/dangers of drinking, people still do it regardless. Of course it's a personal decision but it's just a fact that many teens do drink, and will continue to whether or not the law is there to try and stop it.
Give me a study that proves that. Trust me the schools only give one side of the argument and only give the evidence that they want to. Never the evidence to the contrary. Why is the drinking age lower in every other country? Do you think they do not care about the citizens health?
66- That doesn't make it right. There's a saying I'm about to butcher, "Right is right, even if no one likes it. Wrong is wrong, even if everyone does it." By the way, hi, nice to meet you. I turn 21 in 2 months and my first taste of alcohol was an accident when I was 2, from my grandpa's beer; my only other one was when my pina colada wasn't alcohol-free like it was supposed to, back when I was 13. Not everyone drinks. And it's not a religious thing(ha!), or a medical thing.. I just don't do it. Most of my friends don't either. My 25 year old girlfriend only did a little at three weddings. So not everyone drinks
I think drinking is only wrong if you're letting it controlyour life and if it's hurting the people around you. my boyfriend's dad harrassed me when he was drunk and then beat my boyfriend and his younger brothers. however I do know a lot of people that can control their actions when they drink.
I honestly don't understand why 5 is being thumbed down. She has a valid reason not to drink. While I accept the fact that many underage teens will drink, it's their personal choice to do that, and it doesn't make underage drinking right or wrong (even though legally it is wrong). It's also someone's personal choice not to drink even after they're of age. Leave opinions alone.
Sorry, but I have to bring up the old argument of why is it "right" for 18 yr olds to go be killed in combat but "wrong" for the next 18 yr old signed up for the same job to drink? Just saying if you can choose to die for your country you should be able to choose legally if you want to maybe wake up with a hangover.
implying that you can't "live your life" without alcohol is kinda pathetic :/ I'm 15 and I don't drink (I want to be a singer and it damages your vocal chords) or do drugs or smoke, but still have fun and look forward to the future, you don't need alcohol to have a good time :) you just need your mates :)
maybe it's time both of you came to terms with your problems and get help (mummy- alcoholic, and presumably physically violent. You- drinking and making homemade versions of vodka)
