Just wondering what you all think is better?

obviously the UK has a problem with binge drinking (which is an activity I am currently partaking in) and the us is accused of leaving it too late.

Which is better?

The earlier the better. Get kids used to alcohol from an early age so that they know how to deal with it.

You should come to my uni, we do not know how to deal with it, we only just realised that if you drink so much that you throw up, that's too much.

We drink way to much as you may be able to tell nkow cos I'm a bit drunk.

I don't have a problem with the US drinking age being 21 per se, but I have a big problem that people can drive by 16, and can vote, smoke and die for the country at age 18. It isn't consistent and doesn't make sense in my mind.

Yeah I know what you mean, the Uk system makes more sense.

Yeh I think that we do have a different mentality about drinking. I think a lot of socialising is lead around drinking. Maybe thats where the problem has come from.

before uni I drank and got drunk but not as bad as I do now but I think it's because I only turned 18 last august so I didn't want to make the rents angry.

My parents were weird. They knew I would drink with or without their permission so they gave me their blessing :lol:

My parents let me drink with them but I always got the vibe that I was only allowed to drink alchohol with them...then when I turned 18 my Dad said I need to get out more, get drunk more have a 1 night stand. Whcih shocked me, although I have done all 3 since being at uni...not that he'll ever know.

I'd prefer the drinking age to be 16. I think if parents would introduce alcohol in the home as something enjoyable, then it wouldn't be seen as this taboo that teens have to sneak behind their parents' backs. I would want to teach my kids how to hold their liquor with me instead of letting them learn by getting wasted with irresponsible friends.
