    More information in the source and statistics about smoking. What do you think, drinking is okay or not?

    8 pints a night isn't binge drinking if it's every night.

    But to answer the OP's question it all depends on the person doing the drinking. If you can happily have a drink and not get drunk, and when you do get drunk you aren't starting fights or causing shit for everyone else then no problems at all.

    EDIT:TBH some people should never touch it, but then again some people are cunts on caffeine.

    Kids these days... rather than smoking and drinking, like normal people, they choose MMORPG's and sitting in dark corners. I'm disgusted by this state of matters.

    Don't you all know that alcohol sanitizes surfaces it comes in-contact with, clearing them of germs? Don't you know that smoked meat lasts longer than unsmoked? Gah... Silly rascals.

    foxi4, do u want kids to do/use this or the elders/adults?
    kids stay away from smoking and alcohol, let the elders who are "immune' work with it.

    remember kids, what u do in the first 18 years determines what u will do in your life

    In my country the average kid that drinks is each time younger.
    As for the question, I don't really think drinking is terribly bad.

    I, personally, don't drink. The taste alcohol gives to things is disgusting to me.

    Here, in my school, 77% of the students drink. Half of those who don't drink are between the ages of 13 and 15. Around 28% of those who drink also use other drugs, such as cocaine and hallucinogenic mushrooms.

    There's no need for them to get caught [​IMG]

    Either that this decrease in children drinking has dropped due to the amount of children dying.

    EDIT: Well, couldn't children just lie the the poll?

    Vulpes, stop chasing drunk minors [​IMG]


    The reason most kids drink is usually because they're bored out of their skulls. Most of them wouldn't drink (that much) if there was anything else to do, but when your only options are your parents' living room or Buckfast Tonic on a park bench, guess where your kids are.

    To hell with that, when I was 16, I was drinking and smoking like a trooper and crashing on parties in discos conscidered to be +18, dancing with the hottest stock there was.

    You can have your parkbench or Buckfast, I prefere my lifestyle. Too bad that now I'm too old for this stuff...

    I, on the other hand, wasn't filthy rich.

    And as for content, discos are not much different than a park bench, only with a better sound system and more expensive booze.

    Me neither, but hey - you had to make due.

    Either spend your allowence on having a good time, or... wait, what was the second option again?
