You know, if theres one thing I've noticed in differences between many parts of Europe and the US -It's the way people think of alcohol. In the US alcohol is strictly not allowed until age 21, and this is great, however certain traditions in the US prevent it from reaching its full potential. Unlike in Europe, where at a young person's birthday, they may be given a small glass of wine, with food to prevent them from getting drunk, and possibly some water as well, in the US most people drink when they turn 21, except they don't drink in normal amounts, because they have never seen it before, in fact it is custom to give a young person a glass of champagne at a celebration [In Europe]. And why not? They're with family and they are in the comfort and safety of their apartment during that time. People in the US, while still young but over 21 have never seen alcohol before, so they think to themselves that they need to drink as much as possible at one single time, leading to an overdose or even death. There are mostly younger people who die of alcohol poisoning in the US by statistics. This is obviously a problem. For a 21 year old to think that they need to drink as much as possible as soon as they are able to. You know that that's stupid right? I guess young people in the US, who drink at a celebration [when they are over 21], because they have not had a small glass of wine or a beer or something early on, in a social environment, fully trust people who they do not know very well, at a bar, or a party, and they are taking a major risk. European people, while in new company or company of colleagues usually have a three drink maximum. It's simply an accepted tradition, but people in the US learn about alcohol at an age that is far too late for them to be aware of the consequences of drinking irresponsibly, and environments which are okay to drink in, along with environments which are really not. You don't have any experience here, so you end up doing bad things for your well being, without traditions......
