Well at least it seems like you guys are good at keeping in touch even though it's a long distance relationship
Actually it's a good thing she was 'there' to wake up to that. Many people have died as a result of throwing up alone (jimmy hendrix and bon scot being two famous examples), she could have checked if he was ok and if not could have phoned for potentially life saving assistance.
#28 was talking about which emergency number to call. In America it's 911, whereas the Netherlands people use 112. 28 was asking how OP would know what emergency number to call if it had been necessary. It's obviously easy to look up on the internet, but you know.
Not always, here in the uk you can dial 911. But even if it does, you can still be redirected by the operator.
I am 16, but I don't see the interest in alcohol at all.. Can someone explain why it's so great anyway?
I personally don't care one way or another either. However imo people do it because they like the way it makes them feel, or when they are young, just because it makes people do crazy and stupid things and they think thats fun and makes for a good time. Some alcohols that don't have a high alcohol content don't taste to bitter and are not really bad tasting. It's all about preferwnce.
I'm 23 and I don't drink often at all. I like the taste of some alcohol like hard cider and some wines and being tipsy can be fun, but mostly alcohol just makes me sleepy. I don't understand the hype about being drunk either, which is why I don't drink a lot because I'm very much a light weight. In some social settings it's nice because being tipsy makes me more talkative and engaging which can lead to fun conversations where I would otherwise be too reserved to speak much. It's just not for everyone, though, you definitely shouldn't feel pressured to drink if you don't want to :)
Most people drink because it numbs the mental pain they're in, if you watch Shameless on ShowTime, Frank drinks because he hates himself and when he's drunk he doesn't really think about it. Drinking isn't good and I don't suggest anyone does it but it's a personal choice.
