    Because your not cool if you don't do it.

    Everyone has drank before they're 18 it's just to see what it's like, an experimentation a social thing. Drugs have become widely available so their use today is the same as alchahol curiosity.

    What I don't get is how people just keep on doing it.
    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    No that top line was sarcasm but the rest was serious.

    No, you were right. With a lot of people, you're not cool unless you do it.

    Drinking, smoking and drugs are readily avaliable, and they're seen as 'adult'. Everyone wants to appear cool and mature, so they 'rebel' and drink, smoke and take drugs.

    Drinking (in moderation) can be quite fun. But i completely respect the fact you don't want to drink I have a friend like that and he is well fit.

    Fun? You call getting drunk fun? You get a massive headache after drinking and you make stupid decisions and your mouth tastes like puke! If u call that fun you are weird and freaky at the same time...
