Default I suck at being 21

So I turned 21 on Saturday... party city, right? lol well first of all I am the only person I know that legitimately did not have a single sip of alcohol while underage.

My first alcoholic beverage was a wine cooler that my brother bought me - the brother that has never really acknowledged my birthday until this year lol. I took one sip. Decided it tasted like hand sanitizer, so that was the end of THAT drink.

Yesterday I did the Pedal Pub with my family, which is basically where you pedal and drink. I drank water and Gatorade and played bartender for everyone else LOL. Every time I opened the cooler for myself, everyone held their breath hoping...

I'm like the worst 21 year old there is lol. Then again, I sucked at being 18 too and still haven't been to the casino.

You do not such, lol! Everyone celebrates differently.

It's so weird to hear that you have to be 21 to legally drink because the legal age here is 18.

I also suck at being 21...well, 22 now. I have been drunk exactly ONE time (I'm talking like, pretend I'm a caterpillar and try to break out of my sweatshirt kind of drunk), and now I just get buzzed from a single beer/a few sips of a drink.

We can suck at being alcoholics together!!

LOL I'm 26 and never have had alcohol and never plan on drinking. Just a personal choice I made for a variety of reasons. For my 21st, I went and bought booze for all of my close friends (both underage and of age) and we all just hung out in my apartment LOL. I guess to some it's lame, but it was perfect for me

At my wedding, I had Mountain Dew in my champagne glass for the toast

I am also DD for everyone most every weekend hahaha. I like it because my family/friends can go out and have fun, and I can make sure they all get home safely. I used to be relatively popular in grad school because of my DD ways

Thanks meepitsmeagan for the siggy!

Your just good at being you!!!

I was 20 or so before I got "drunk" from a few small drinks (Very cheap drunk LOL) here (And in NS where I'm from) the legal age is 19...

I was not as good as you, had the odd sip when underage... But never really got a taste for it...

Now that my kids are grown I get "silly" a couple times a year, usually at a private house party... more than when I was "supposed" too... LOL

There are more significant measures of whether you are doing any particular age "well" than whether or not you drink alcohol :P I imagine you're doing just fine.

Well I'm only 20 but I'm not a big drinker either. Dad asked what I wanted for my birthday this year and I told him Red Sox tickets and a carburetor haha. Besides, it's not like you're obligated to drink!

(Although I did buy a pack of cigarettes on my 18th birthday. They're still in my desk.) =P

There's nothing wrong with not drinking. It's not some mystical rite of passage, it's just a thing. And this is coming from a 22 year old male who drinks like a pirate.

Plenty of people don't like alcohol. The best thing to do is go to a bar and try a few things. Maybe you'll find something you love. Make sure it's a common drink though, so you can order it anywhere.

I was pregnant on my 19th so needless to say I did not celebrate with alcohol.
