thanks, hopefully it continues to hold true. 18 was legal age when I was in school, but we did imbibe in high school. My father was very strict about it. However, I had a friend die in a car accident in my junior year and that snapped me right out of it.
When we visited Denmark, we were having dinner at a friend's house and the father had to leave mid-dessert to pick his son up from a graduation party because he was drunk. There is no drinking age there, no stigma attached, and so the kids have no problem calling mom and dad for a ride because there is a stigma attached to driving drunk and to getting in the car with a drunk driver there!
