I started drinking heavily at the age of 13, which lead to HORRIBLE things happening ( I'm actually almost crying writing this) I saw and did things that will effect the rest of my life. I stopped drinking just before my 15 birthday. I am actually really scared about what I could do once I'm of a legal age.

This works.

I wasn't allowed to go out a whole lot in high school, which I really didn't mind at all because I just rolled my eyes at all the drama that would be talked about on Monday morning at school. I was too busy with my horses anyway, so I really didn't care.

But I did go out every once in a while. I had my first drink at 14.

The first time I got sick from drinking was around age 20.

I only drink socially with friends. Every once in a while we'll get carried away. And then the next morning I hate myself for being so miserably hung over.

I'm 26.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

My parents never forbid alcohol so it was never a novely or a forbidden fruit. As a result neither I nor my siblings have ever found any big deal about it
Being drunk is not a cool look and neither is having liver failure or brain damage
I have worked with elderly people with mental health issues and a large number of them had a history of alchol abuse.
If you feel a need to drink then stick to the guidelines for what is safe
