I had my first drink and drunk when I was 8. My dad was an alcoholic and would give me "hot toddies"(whisky,lemon,honey) when we would get a cold. I remember asking for more and more till I got drunk. He thought it was funny.

My mom put vodka in our baby bottles to make us sleep all night. Does that count?

My Mother used to put beer in my baby bottle to get me to go to sleep when ever she didn't want to really take care of me. I remember her doing this and she thought it was funny. I intentionally started drinking when I was about 4 or 5 years old. Living in an alcoholic home, it was always available to me and they never seemed to miss it, or they just didn't care or maybe they were so drunk they didn't notice. I really started drinking heavily when I was about 15, partying with friends who had stolen booze from their own home. I drank quite heavily until I was 38 and then I had to get myself some help. I chose AA as my way to recovery and now I am 60 and I still go to my AA meetings and probably always will because I need to have friends of a like mind; no drinking ever.

I had my first drink like most, as a toddler. It was whiskey and my dad would put it in my milk to get me to sleep (This made my family furious.) I first intentionally started drinking around 12 or 13, it started with the spiked punch at Christmas parties and evolved into elegant blue prints of plans to steal carts full of bacardi and grey goose. Oh boy, haha.

My parents luckily never added alcohol to anything lol. I had my first drink either @ 14 or 15 just out of curiosity. I would say I started seeking out alcohol around 17-18.

I was 8 or 9 when I had my first taste of Budweiser after hard football practices out in the heat. I drank on purpose when I was 12 and took breaks.
