well i saw some threads that were kind of about this, but no polls.

so how many of you drink or smoke and are under 18 in your respective countries?

im 15, and dont do either, and i dont plan to. But i also dont claim straight edge, just coz i want the freedom to do wat i want, when i want.

I do when I feel like it. I'm seventeen, and perfectly capable of drinking or smoking for a bit if I so wish. Nobody has died yet as a result, so I'm not going to stop.

I have no opinion on this matter.

Well before I was 18 me and my mates had the odd drinkup. We never caused trouble.
So ... regularly.
And back in the day I used to do about half a pack of smokes a day. Now its the same.

No, don't plan on it, I don't have the money & if I did I would rather spend it on gear.
#8
It can actually be beneficial for someone underage to have the odd drink. Not so much that they get hammered, but just so they understand alcohol better. The end result is that when they do become legal they are more responsible with it, as it's nothing really new, rather than just completely binging as soon as they turn 18 like in Australia.

**** the policies in australia

underage drinking i reckon is fine, the government does not need to waste 52 million to try to stop kids from drinking.

Anyways when we were younger we used to drink, sort of regularly, couple times a week.. now its not underage for me anymore, and i sorta do it less.. I think its coz back then it was "illegal" or couldnt get it so yeah.. now its just costly!

+1, this campaign isn't going to stop underage drinking. I do it, my friends do it, pretty much everyone i know, minus a few people do it...

the money would b better spent elsewhere
#20
I'm 16 turning 17 later this year, and I've managed to keep off the smokes so far, and don't plan on getting into them anytime soon.

That said, I do drink, but just because you're underage doesn't mean you can't be responsible about it. When me and my friends hit the alcohol, we always make sure that a couple of us stay mostly sober to look after everyone, and for the most part, we don't get so hammered that we're retarded about it.

It's probably a good way of going about it, I think.

Well they're trying, I don't agree though

Stop underage drinking but then what happens when you get to legal age?

A 17 year old can't drink fine, but once he turns 18, he's gonna go nuts and drink a ****load anyway

and theres a waste of time/money because drinking is inevitable, theres probably like 1% of people who go throughout their lives without a drink
#22
yes, both. 16. favourite drinks are beer and scotch...i have been known to drink a 6 pack of the former and a bottle of the latter in one night, but i'll usually just have a 6 pack or 2.
and i smoke anywhere between 2 and 15 cigarettes a day, more if i'm out with mates. it all just depends on how i feel.

edit: by the way, i am as safe as i can possibly get about it...it's always at mates places with parents present, i can definately handle a drink, and i instinctively roll on my side when i'm about to pass out...i also tend to wake up and throw up pretty much all the alcohol about 10 minutes after i pass out. but i usually go pretty steady on the drinks, the scotch is just for special occasions.

before i was 18, i would drink regularly. and could buy it from my local shop who the owner thought i was 18

was drinking regularly for at least 2 years while underage, and before then i would drink, just not often
#27
I clicked rarely since the legal drinking age for beer and wine here is 16...and 18 for hard stuff...I used to drink harder alcohol with a friend from time to time until we turned 18...and apparently you're not allowed to walk around with beer bottles in public if you are not 18...I didn't know that, nor do I know how long thats been a law...cause I've done that very often.
#29
i did both of course for drinking here you have to be 21 which is ridiculously high.
