Topic: First Inebriation

Do you remember the first time you tried a beer? Or how about the first time you smoked a joint? What about the first time you got drunk on that drug called love? What happened next? The first time Amber got falling down drunk was off of a Mike's Hard Lemonade at the ripe age of 21.
