    Hey guys. I live in a suburban area where you need to have a car to get around. I've started to sleep at my friends' houses the nights we get drunk, but I'm afraid my parents are going to notice I'm doing this a lot and figure things out. Any creative ways on how to get home or what to tell the parents after a night of drinking? Please help!

    Umm maybe you should not be drinking so much, especially if you are getting drunk on many occasions...

    I don't get drunk on many occasions...two or three times a month tops, but I haven't really had "sleepovers" since 8th grade so I'm afraid they are going to think this is weird.

    I dunno,

    I mean cant u behave when ur totally pissed? Just prepare is all i can say. Put a bucket next 2 ur bed. Come home late and dont make noise. Just roll on ur bed and sleep.

    U can always say u were sick. But whats so bad about drinking? I mean everyones done it. Its part of growing up. Why cant u just tell them?

    when i was younger my parents were pretty opened minded about drinking as long as i didn't do it to often, was smart about it (not get caught by po), and never drove drunk they didn't care

    I don't think my parents would be very happy if they knew I drank; in my community it's not a thing that parents know about, we're very secretive about it. My problem is not behaving in front of my parents when I've been drinking because I'm pretty good at that, my problem is physically getting home from a friend's house because I will not drive when I've had anything, even one drink,I'm just too paranoid.

    Yeah that's basically what I though, we might have to start having a designated driver. Thanks for your help.

    Don't drink and drive - you might spill your beer. [​IMG]

    You're supposed to be at least 18 to register.
    No exceptions!

    Please read the rules.

    Gosh...calm down. I didn't know you had to be 18. If you don't want to talk to me because I'm not 18 then don't reply to my topic.

    Since you're about to be 18, We'll make an exception. But it still is clear that you did not read the rules. Please do this.

    Get a designated driver or friend to drive you .. duh alternate with a
    buddy at parties.. if the place is close then just walk home .. a few
    miles max and that will give u time to sober up

    Seriously by 18 you should have the common sense to designate a driver if you know your going out drinking. Or to simply call a cab. i wouldn't worry toomuch about your parents being mad if they find out your drinking.you'd be surprised, a lot of parents would be happy to know you are smart enought to not try and drive your car home. if they find out your drinking just remember to point out that at least your not on the road drunk. they should be happy that your being safe.
