I'm 20 right now and turning 21 in a month. I just tried half a wine glass of "Kendall Jackson's Grand Reserve Merlot" just for the hell of it because I was bored and wanted to experiment. The smell was bad and the taste was bad. I forced myself to finished that half glass and every sip after the previous was just worse. I felt like I needed to puke after the last sip. Right now I can feel my face being hot and a bit of a headache. I also feel a bit of pressure pressing on the side of my head. It's a bit harder to concentrate/focus and had difficulty walking from my room to the kitchen. I still feel sober though.
This was the 3rd time that I've tried alcohol. The first time was an extremely small amount of Heineken beer that my brother finished for me because I hated the bitterness of it. The second time was some fruity cooler thingy that had very low alcohol content from what I was told. Apparently, I got a red face according to my family and I felt crappy to. This time I feel worse than that previous time. (Maybe due to the higher alcohol content?) All of these times were with my family so was all good.
I keep giving alcohol a try but it's not really working so far. I'm planning to try give it a few more tries because I'm assuming it's the brand and type of alcohol I'm trying. I really want to see what the big deal is about with alcohol and why my friends and family like it so much. Thus I only have one question in mind. Does it get any better?
