To the teenagers.

You don't have to drink alchohol to have fun. Be a leader not a follower.

Hi Sis!

There are teens out there who are much more followers than leaders...and much easier to lead into going along with the crowd...peer pressure! I guess I'm boring too!

Umm...since when is following the law and following your parents wishes being a leader?

I'm not saying you should go out and get drunk...but a few drinks isn't a big deal. Why the drinking age in the states is 21 not 18 is crazy. And why, in NA, is there such a taboo associated with alcohol? It's glamorized, then teens are told...they can't touch the stuff...

...gee...I wonder why they "binge" drink If you can only get out one day a week and have to be sneaky to have a drink, of course you are going to drink more per occasion.

...and for the record...I didn't drink as a teen...

Old enough to fight in the army, old enough to drink, I've always said.

Although there are allowances for 18+ on army bases, I suppose... still, it should be 18.

Plain and simple.................. drinking and driveing. Teens are known to drive really fast. But add that with some drinks and we got a problem.

I in fact like that the law is 21 years or older to buy alcohol. But since I do not drink any type of alcohol nor plan to buy any, I have nothing to worry about. I can apply that money to a ton of different stuff besides drinks. If some one went to a bar every day or even once a week for that matter that adds up after a while.

Just my opinion,

Bigk

Heh, I'm enjoying myself sitting at home right now... bowl of oatmeal, comfy chair, AIMing people I enjoy talking to, being on TSG... this won't be a terrible memory looking back on it.

But I don't always sit at home. I'm in clubs, I'm in marching band (which from July through november pretty much keeps you out of the house on weekends), my life isn't totally boring. My friends just don't happen to be the party people, because the party people at my school and I don't get along the greatest. And I like it that way. At least I'd better, because it's not going to change a lot for a little while.

You are having the happy well adjusted life a teenager should have. You will have nothing to regret later in life. You are a leader!
