    Happy birthday 🙂

    Our legal drinking age in the province where I turned legal is 19. I had been drinking as a teenager (both irresponsibly with friends and responsibly in my parents’ home) and by the time I was legal, the alcohol had zero appeal. It was great finally being of legal age to go to bars to see bands and things like that, though.

    Happy (technically belated) birthday! 

    DH’s grandfather was on hospice on my 21st birthday so we spent time with him then went to a bar and had a few legal drinks. He died later that night though so we didn’t do a ton of celebrating.

    I was in college, and went to a huge party school, so my room mate and I decided to throw a big party.  We had a black light and a bunch of mixed themes, it was so fun!  I didn’t intend to be wasted, but my friends kind of hazed me and kept dumping out my water and filling my cup with more punch.  I ended up sick, they ended up chewed out, so at my bachelorette party this year they knew better than to do that again!  All in all though, it was a very fun night.

    Nope, didn’t get drunk. Instead I took the GRE exam on my 21st birthday. 

    Happy birthday!

    I got pretty darn drunk on my 21st birthday but I didn’t black out or have a hangover the next day or anything.  It was a good night though!  🙂

    ETA: Happy birthday!

    I got so drunk I slid out of the booth we were sitting in and onto the floor. Pretty sure I had to be carried out, but I don’t rightly remember. 😀

    It was a tradition among my friends to have 21 drinks on your 21st birthday and I did it!  I started at like 8am and took a couple naps.  So, yes, I was pretty out of commission the next day.

    I had like three sips of a margarita on my 21st birthday.  I’m not nuts about alcohol, so I couldn’t stand to drink any more after those three sips.

    I don’t think I got drunk on that particular day, but most of my late teens and early twenties were pretty fuzzy in regards to alcohol. I had a lot of fun in college :p

    Nope!  I was in Iraq on my 21st!  I wasn’t too broken up about it, however, as I had gotten wasted the 3 birthdays prior!

    The rum wore me well, let’s just say that.

    I’d been drunk many times before my 21st, but I still went out and got wasted on my birthday. To me it just feels like a rite of passage lol

    I did the whole 21 drinks on your 21st things, starting at midnight. I only had one then though because I had to go to sleep and then get up in the morning for a statistics exam. We counted each shot’s worth of alcohol in a mixed drink as a drink and kept track with marker on my arm (classy, I know). It was fun, but now that I’m older, I think it was unnecessary.

    My friends took me out to a hookah bar. The actual alcoholic bar was downstairs, but if you were under 21, you were allowed upstairs in the smoking rooms. So we hung out up there for a little while, and then at midnight we all went downstairs and announced to the bar at large that it was officially my birthday. And those lovely bar patrons made sure I got hammered. I probably had a little too much, actually. To be fair, my very serious boyfriend of two years had just dumped me a few days earlier. I was very much in the mood to drink, ha.
