Out of interest, when did you have your first alcoholic drink?

I was like 10 but my childhood is hardly a good barometer for societal norms on things like this.

I was 10. Or 9. But my parents let me try it. I hated it and didn't wanna drink again until I was older

I had sips from my dad's can of beer at an early age - probably 5? But only sips. I first drank with the intent of catching a buzz at 13 or 14.

Does having whiskey rubbed on your gums as a teething infant count? If not sips of beer around 8.

I was about 12, but only on holidays, no drinking beyond that until I was 21

12 or 13 for my first drink.
But I was 16 or 17 before I started drinking regularly.
