    Very good point, but drinking and losing your inhibitions once in a while can be fun, especially while you are young. The key is being careful and making sure everyone is doing so safely.

    Yeah, but soda and juice are healthier. Especially juice (since soda is pretty much just sugar). And people who drink too much wouldn't have to worry about calling someone or paying for a taxi to get home. xP

    I'm not much of a drinker honestly, I only drink a bit at parties out of courtesy and such but other than that I don't really like it cause I've got a sweet tooth and most drinks I've drunk have been bitter

    I never drink at all. I hate it and it can be really bad for you. Yes, I've actually tried it before too. Any alcoholic beverage I've tasted was awful. >_<

    Soda is not in the least bit healthy haha :) even most juices are unhealthy nowadays despite the packaging and marketing as such.

    Alcohol is not either, obvi. Just like anything, it should be used in moderation...before your clothes fall off.

    I didn't say soda was healthy. I said it was healthIER. Soda can make you gain weight, but it doesn't destroy your brain and liver like alcohol does. And juice comes from fruit, so it's always good for you. Unless it's full of artificial junk, that is. But I only drink juice that has natural flavors and such anyway.

    Not to jump in randomly, but juice is easily as much or more sugar than soda, especially if the soda is diet. Fruit are packed with Fructose, which is just fruit-sugar, basically, and your body processes it the same. Most diet soda has zero sugars. What is bad about some sodas is they are full of sodium, which de-hydrates you, and dark sodas have an ingredient that causes cellulite.

    I don't really drink, either. The idea of not being in control of myself terrifies me, and I just plain don't like the taste of most alcohol.

    I will drink margaritas at home, though. (Yum...)

    I agree.

    Although, red wine and other alcoholic drinks actually have some health benefits, particularly in terms of cardiovascular health. Boom!

    That's NATURAL sugars. The sugar in soda is artificial and makes you fat. The sugar in fruit is the type that's good for you. My parents taught me this myself since I'm a big fruit and juice lover.

    Untrue. Sugar is sugar, it doesn't matter where it comes from. Most processed sugar comes from sugar cane or corn and is completely natural. Natural does not equal better for you.

    Also, for the record, carbs and starches are sugar. So pasta and potatoes are pretty much pure sugar.

    I think ANY type of sugar can make you gain weight unless consumed in moderation.

    Anyways, I'm excited, although boys probably won't care. I just ordered two new Pokèmon shirts and the infamous Pokèball bra!

    Yup, I was gonna make one myself on just a normal bra, but i suck at that sort of thing. Just came in the mail! I feel like that's what a girl like May (huge boobs) would wear under her shirt in the anime!

    A LOT of juices these days are full of processed sugar anyways (Hi-C, Capri Sun, etc.). Soda has absolute TONS of sugar and other ingredients that are absolutely terrible for your health (doesn't mean they don't taste good lol).

    Alcoholic beverages, on the other hand, run the gambit from high-sugar to practically none, and alcohol itself actually doesn't affect your brain as badly as you might think. It's a depressant, yes, but a bit of alcohol every now and then isn't going to drop your IQ like Britney dropped K-Fed. Wine in particular has several health benefits, and the stress relief is rather beneficial too.
