Peer pressure is a big thing, especially at your age. Don't be ashamed, back when I was 11/12 I'd have said yes too.

It's a tough situation. People might tell you that you'll know to do the right thing when the time comes, but it's never that easy. Just keep telling yourself there's a time and place for everything, and that's college. Underage drinking anywhere else is pretty useless. Hang in there.

My dad made me drink my first alcohol when I was 3 years old. Of course, I don't remember it, I watched its tape (mom has this weird habit of recording almost every dinner). And since I was 9 he always allowed me to drink a very little glass whatever I want on my birthdays. And now, I'm allowed to drink without getting really drunk. I guess I have a bad father. =/

Was it that one frined of yours that you don't like? Because she's retarded?

Don't drink. Because sober people will watch you get drunk and act like an idiot and laugh at you. You'll get raped too.

Watch out, girl.

Heh, I know the feeling.
I get offered all sorts of drugs from my brothers friends when he has them in my house. I've never said yes to anything, I do drink though.
I find the best way to go about refusing is just explain that you genuinly dont want to do it, the worst they can do from there is make fun, call you a wimp or something, but it stops them from offering.

Damn girl, stay away from alcohol for now. If you start drinking now, your chances at developing a drinking problem are too great.

The whole "just say no" campaign things are just dumb because they aren't grounded to reality at all. They make it seem a lot easier than it is.

But, like everyone else said, it's rough, but it is possible to do. Hang in there.

Parents that tell you you can't drink no matter what, are idiots. It's a good idea to let their kids have one drink with them, or something. What's the harm? If you're not allowed to drink you'll run out and get piss drunk because 'omg I'm not allowed to!'. Meh. I guess drinking just isn't a big deal here. I've been allowed to go out drinking from when I was 13. Tis not a big deal. Except I have no brain cells left. Hello?

Peer pressure never really affected me as a kid. I used to try my mum's cocktails when we were on holiday from a really young age so I've always been comfortable with booze. I've never tried smoking though (at least not the legal stuff) and whenever kids at school pestered me to try they always got the finger.

Don't be scared to say no. It's your body and your life, so look after it the way you want to. If people can't respect that then they're just not worth your time or friendship anyway.

It really isn't. As someone who said "Oh GOD yes" when I had the chance, I might not be the most qualified party to tell you, but in the end it's just a word. I know plenty of people who have no trouble saying no. The only reason you would say yes is if you were hesitant on your own in the first place.

EDIT - What kind of alcohol was it?

and saying no is easy. you say "no thanks" and they say "ok" and offer the next person some.

In a perfect world. Some people are pricks and instead of saying "ok" say "OHMIGOD NO WAI WUT A HOMO" and tell evveryone they know from then on what a loser you are. Yeah, I been dere.

Back when I didn't drink, if I was hanging around my friends when they were about to drink or smoke up with older friends of theirs, they'd tell me beforehand and reassure me that nobody cared if I turned it down. Like, every time in multiple situations, I would be asked if I was OK with it.

Human - We never know how we're going to deal with situations until we're in them, and what makes it all the more difficult is that we, as people, often learn how to handle certain situations from others. So when you're alone in a new experience, it's difficult not to be swept along. It helps to clearly outline outline your position in your mind. You don't want to drink, you don't have to drink, and you can turn it down. It often helps to be cool with the other person drinking, but considering the age of your peers, it's really not something with which you *should* be comfortable. If that's the case, first just politely turn it down and suggest doing something else. If they press you, make it clear that you're not going to be pursuaded. Say something like "Look, I'm not going to drink. If you really want to that badly, go drink by yourself, but I just want to *insert other activity here*." It's much better to make it out so that the decision not to drink is yours, instead of saying something like "What if we get caught?" or "My parents will kill me.". If you list reasons, the other person will often try to argue them. Just simply state that you don't want to drink. It might even help to go over certain scenarios in your head so you're a bit more familiar with them and a bit more comfortable reacting to them.

It's difficult to set an appropriate age for drinking. College is a pretty safe answer, but most of my friends began drinking in high school. The time around age sixteen seemed to be a pretty big tipping point. It's going to be a matter of personal choice, but eleven is way too damn young. Your brain is still in the relatively early stages of its formative years, and acquainting it with copious amounts of poison is not the key to healthy development, not to mention that early alcohol us is generally symptomatic of a more fundamental problem.

I wonder why ppl find it so difficult to say no. Sometimes I just said "no" to make a stand, even if I longed after it.

But then you don't get your fifty euros.

My dad gave me a beer when I was 6 because there was no other liquid with us and I was thirsty. I didn't drink it, though. He even gave me my first cigarette when I was 5. I did try that. And I nearly choked to death. My dad was an ass.

People get way too uppy about people drinking these days. Fair enough if you're 5, but when you're 16 or 17 and drink a bit people seem to assume you have a drink problem, which is ridiculous.
