G - Getting drunk

Getting drunk with your friends is a unique experience. Sometimes you can open op on ways you never thought would be possible, when you get a tad to drink, tonight is one of those nights, which is also the reason I'm so very late with my a-z post and I wrote this from my Ipod.

Elaboration on last nights words:
(I remembered very late, that I had to write a post and at that moment that was all I could come up with!)

Off course you have to drink with responsibility and make sure that those you are with will follow you home if you've drunken to much.

Here in Denmark, it is not illegal to drink at any specific age even though at 16 you are allow to buy alcohol with low alcohol percent. At 18 you can drink and smoke away.

When you start to drink so early as we Danes do, you learn your boundaries and being an responsible drinker. I'm making Denmark sound like the land of underage drinking(at least for the US), but it's not dangerous and parents are just as every other parents; worried sick. So in the first years they are there to talk to or just be around. It is no shame to drink or talk openly about it.

When you reach my age(almost 18 age) you become more civilized, by the fact that you have had  those experiences and as time go by, you get to know your boundaries and know that that next glass of wine is not a good idea.

I don't know so much about how the U.S deals with underage teenagers drinking and their party's, all I know is that when you are 18, you are at least old enough to make your own decisions and at twenty one, sure you are a lot older, but you will be so much more inexperienced. All I have heard of your colleges is that you go completely crazy drinking really irresponsible and it probably because you haven't had those experiences.  To be honest I know nothing about how you do things in the states.

I hope you all have a good Sunday off


  1. Here in the states, we aren't allowed to drink until we are 21.
    You guys are getting DRUNK at the age of 17.

    This fact should be ridiculed more often.

  2. Wow, things are sure different there than in Canada. I have to say I don't like getting drunk. I like what's in my own head without muddling it up... but then again there are many alcoholics in my family so I'm not a fan of drinking in general. It doesn't mean I don't like to have a drink once in a while, because I do, but I never go as far as getting wobbly. Everyone's different, though!

  3. Wow it's so different there. I'm a causal drinker and do not drink to get drunk. I like to always be in control of my actions.

  4. Learning to respect alcohol and its affects early in life hopefully helps ward off the need to binge and get drunk.

    I often wonder if restricting alcohol, the way it is done in North America, actually adds to the problem. That being said, getting drunk at an earlier age, just because it's legal, is sad too.

    I hope you are careful with your alcohol consumption...I'm a mom and I worry about young people drinking. :)
