Whatever you *text deleted* do is ultimately up to you, but don't ver just join the amrines or the army or where ever for as *text deleted**text deleted*tty a reason as getting wrecked.


that';s really immature. do what you wann do, but to *text deleted* be apart of something ppurely because it seems like a fun place t have a drinnk is a really *text deleted**text deleted* reason.

law's changed? drinking up to 21? ... i don't think so. not yet at least. not heard anything to do with that besides some Drs sounding off. drink/drive age thing might be messed with where you can't drink ANY alcohol then drive until 21.
I reckon personally 18+ is the best time to join up. esp if you go career

:iagree:

Robbie is right ...Are you planning to join, to go on the P*text deleted**? There's no point of joinin the Royal Marines just to get drunk ... there is alot of people on here (including me) that are willin to break bones to join

And also, i don't recall anything bout the drinkin age goin up, probably just a rumour

But in my opinon, if your willing to work hard and train then go for 16 ...
But if you feel you won't get in or maybe believe you need more qualifications then go for 18

Best thing to do, is to have a meeting at the local AFCO ... that helped me in deciding wheather to join at 16 or stay on

:biggrin:

I think he meens he wants to go out and enjoy himeself with his mates a bit before he joins, but he doesn't want to wait until he's 21 to join. Karatydude you should remember that it's not the end of your social life when you join.

Go to college, get a degree.

Those extra years will serve you well. With your maturity, physically and what the AIB refer to as "life experience". Even if you're not going for YO it's all good.

Not wishing to be too judgemental but it seems you base your fun too much on your state of sobriety. Not good. But then I don't drink at all so what do I know?

With regards to your opportunity for further education, do it. You've got nothing to lose and it gives you so much more substance.

Whatever you decide, good luck.

I got asked for ID on Wednesday night at the shop and I'm 21, it's weird because I've been buying beer from some shops near me since I was 15 and it's like 1) You know me, you've known me for years, why bother start asking me now? 2) I had a *text deleted**text deleted*in beard and I don't look like a teenager.
