    Never started

    Well I grew up in a house where alcohol was not permitted nor used or consumed by anyone. I personally don't drink and never have. Not planning to start any time in the future.

    While I HAVE had alcohol, it's been many years... I simply don't see any enjoyment in it, nor do I like it (I'm 29 if it matters).

    I can't drink something that tastes remotely like alcohol. It has to be a very fruity cooler or something. And the only reason I would drink is because I prefer to chill out on my birthday instead of worry about everyone else. Hence the one drink on my birthday

    I'm 16 (17 in sept) and am allowed to have a cider or something else that doesn't have a high alcohol % when I'm home or if my mom knows I'm going to have one with my best friend. I don't party and have never been drunk. I'll wait until I'm 18 when I'm legally allowed to buy them myself. (next year) :)
    I don't like beer, etc. I like something that is fruity like cider and sangria, etc..

    My parents are very morally driven people, so I am not much of a partier, but I know that my oldest brother drinks a lot, and one time when I was 13(he was 18 then) he let me try Jack Daniels whiskey. It hurt my throat. And then another time I was with my uncle's and we got back from a trail ride and I was uber thristy, so I just took a drink of the nearest cup, and it was beer.

    I don't plan on ever developing a habit of drinking. I have seen what alcohol does to people, not to mention it tastes like pee, so I think I have had my fair share.

    I am 15 by the way.

    I have a severe allergy to alcohol, so the first time I tried it (age 14) I never did it again. I don't really want to anyway; that crap was nasty.

    I don't see the fun in getting drunk. So many people here hang out and get drunk and that's practically all they do to have "fun". I'm surprised that one of my ex-friends hasn't died from alcohol poisoning because she drinks A LOT!
    (she's one year younger than me)

    It's just sad.

    I'll turn 20 in the next Dec and would say I've never been drunk. When I was younger (around 6th grade) I tended to drink cider which was around 0.07 per mill or something like that but as you can believe it can't make anybody even tipsy (and honestly I didn't even try to turn tipsy but drank it when I was thirsty). Later I chose to be a teetotaller and that's how I live just now and have lived for several years. It seems I'm not going to change my attitude.

    Oh, and my mom allowed me to taste wine a teenspoonful when I was 5 .
