Strict drinking laws are stupid. Just make it a mandatory part of education and teach young people what it actually implies; what alcohol actually is and what it will do to your body.
Heck, I'd even be for the students being able to try some small amounts of alcoholic beverages in the classroom to help with the education, because introducing drinking in a controlled environment is far, far better than kids going off to party with their friends and drinking 24beers each.

I've been drinking far less since I came to the realization that alcohol is poison. I mean, I've always known it was bad for me, but I've just never bothered to think about the implications.
I've also been dealing with drunkenness far better since I learned what alcohol does to your brain.

The best two tips to avoid headaches/hangovers:
Drink lots of water before drinking alcohol.
Drink some water in between alcoholic drinks.

Juice is just good in general for your brain. I don't think it has any special properties that deal with the alcohol.

No but it refills on vitamins which helps you recover and obviously the fact that it hydrates well

Water ....... ya know that's what the fish pee in do you?

Common response one gets around here when mentioning drinking water. Mostly from adults.

As for teens. Never underestimate peer pressure.
Most of the stupid stuff I've done was due to peer pressure. The only thing I really wanted to do and would've done regardless of peer pressure was N2O. One of the best trips I've ever had.
Not one I'd do again, but still. :D

Drinking alcohol at young age is about proving yourself to your peers.
I constantly see this among the youth. Ones boasting about the amount, about how fast they were drunk, how long they were drunk, their epic hangovers, their blackout and for others the proud fact that they never have any blackouts.

There's not much difference in the different social 'ladders'/groups.
One boasts about the amount of beer.
The other about the type of beer.
Another about stronger drinks cause beer is for *******.
Another about the finer strong drinks for the more mature and educated enthousiast.
Yet another about the different wines he consumed, discussing the taste, flavour, aftertaste, the combination with food. And how many bottles (s)he cleared.

As someone that doesn't drink, you're almost a social outcast when you aren't able/willing to take part of the discussion on alcoholic beverages.
It might just be me being unlucky with the peeps I hang out with, but if it ranges from unemployed scubs aiming for the next Darwin award, up to the ranges of VP (vice president) of a large mailing company, one tends to think it's a good representation of society as a whole.


One can preach all he wants about the negative effects of alcohol, but young peeps couldn't care any less. We are an experience based species. We need to experience something before we formulate an opinion about it. This necessity for experience does diminish as we grow older, mostly because of the mass of other experience gained, but at the young age of 18, one isn't mature enough and thinks drinking is da bomb. And anyone who refuses to take part is a pansy/wuss/wanker/*****.


Alcohol isn't just socially acceptable, it's a fundamental part of society. Excepting the regions where it's replaced by customs/traditions of female oppression. But that's another discussion.


EDIT: If water can't hydrate, how can you think juice can.

I should also note that I live in a country that has such laws. Legal drinking age is 20 and we have a very strict government monopoly on alcohol here in Sweden. The only stores that can sell beverages with more than 3.5% alcohol is Systembolaget, which is owned directly by the government.
Nobody cares about the law. They just buy from dealers.
I've been drinking since 15.

Tbh when I tell people that I don't drink alcohol and pretty much drink water, tea and coffee instead, women are all like:
"Wow thats so healthy of you", "Wow ur so smart", "Wow u set such a good example"

And men are like:
"How the hell are you still alive?"

You're silly to think that we actually obey them.
