Even though the law is the law...
People often have their first experiences with alcohol during their teen years. And sometimes it’s just to try it out, whether at a family party or when socializing with friends.
Remember: not everyone drinks. You’re not forced to and there’s no obligation to have a drink in order to have fun. It’s your decision!
Drinking without going overboard, while
keeping control over yourself to avoid embarrassing situations, can be a good thing. If you drink reasonably and you remain aware of what’s going on around you, you’ll be proud of yourself the next day… and you won’t have a hangover!
