    Well we have been there out nights with your friends well under the legal drinking limit mines in my country is 18 to get a drink but that’s never stopped me before or anyone else I recon for that matter. So at 15 I must admit I’ve been drunk more times than I have fingers and toes to count and now it’s normal to do every weekend and getting it certainly isn’t a challenge. The blame however doesn’t lie with the old “my friends were making me do it” no that excuse is off the table it’s not your friends making you drink it’s yourself needing that brief few hours of complete nothingness no heavy thoughts (although we all have the crying friend or the “your my best friend” speech to endure”) and the sheer bliss that nothing is there to bother us that much. School however is partially to blame the continuous pressure put on people to get A’s and then find out what you want to do in life is a tremendous burden to bare because most of us never pictured getting this far so we’re certainly not think we’re making it into adulthood but that’s another story. Is school made to make us drink ? Because I would point out that drinking isn’t the only thing that happens at school I’ve had friend smoke weed at school and then to even my surprise I myself may have done it and other “stuff” and I don’t want to put all the blame on school but my god it’s so stressful the weekend is too brief an escape I might sound like a melenial saying god hard their life is but that’s besides the point school leaves physically and sometimes emotionally drained wanting to relax. So comment your fun nights drinking when you’re way under the limit cause we all know that they nights are the best of worst there is ????.
