I've been drinking oohh since I was 13 or 14. Binge drinking that is...at parties.
I started on alcopops such as WKD and Smirmoff Ice which were nicer on the old throat and worked my way up to beer in particular lager which I now love. Carlings, Carlsberg, Stella, Kronenburg; give it me any day over bitter!
I also drink spirits and shots now of various things. Getting drunk is fun, I'm way more confident and speak to more people and just enjoy feeling drunk and dancing and stuff. Getting wasted on the other hand, well never got drunk enough to forget stuff, only hazy things I've forgotten in the past, but I'm always aware of what I'm doing when I've been totally drunk on the worst occasions!
Either way drinking at 13 or 14 hasn't killed me and didn't do me no harm!
