Wine Alcoholic Beverages
Not to be "all judgy" but I think that your perspective is coming from a place where heavy drinking is normalised and I agree with you that this is an important pre video… There's many people and places across the world that would consider almost half the nights of the week drinking for extended periods of time to be a sign of addiction (as would the feeling of needing to defend your habit). I'm not saying that I know if your an addict or not but I certainly wouldn't argue with their criteria either. The fact is that the UK (like many European countries) drinks a lot; both on a level of comparison to other rates of drinking, and also compared to what could be considered medically harmful.
Speaking of medical recommendations for some reason when the recommended amount of units to be consumed within one day came about many people had this bizarre idea that they could save it up across multiple days and get absolutely smashed on the weekend. It's so obviously absurd though…you don't see people doing the same with their fat intake and still claiming they are healthy. "It's fine for me to eat these four containers of salted butter. I ate salad all week so it's only making up for my daily allowance." Getting drunk once a week isn't as bad as doing it every day but it's not healthy and it's better to admit that even if you still do it.
lol same Hannah, the first time i got drunk was when i was 15 and i went to a house party and drank a shit load of shots and mixed drinks and had no idea what i was doing. long story short i was sick all over myself, i ended up lying in the garden for an hour and my mum had to come and get me and take me home. I had a killer hangover the next morning and i have got drunk since but i have learnt my lesson and drink responsibly lol. Also vodka is the devil
I love this song "Ave Marie" plus a million more. never played the flute. But it is a beautiful sound. In High School I played b flat clarinet, alto saxophone , trombone, classical and blues guitar. I feel like I am surrounded by the Father,the Son, the Holy Spirit with that piece. "AMEN"
Great Vid. My daughter is 13 and going to get her to watch it.
The best beer for a summer day is a shandy by far. The citrus just lightens it up and makes it all the more refreshing.
I agree with the beer on a hot summer day, its honestly just great!! 🙂
Having a beer while I watch this 🙂
I love your accent. I just binged watched like 20 of your videos 🙂
I started drink at about 10 i'm an Aussie so yer thats why there it was just sips at first but it ended up getting bad. At the age of 14 i'd sneek out drink at house partys and then some thing happen that was really bad and put me in a place that most men will never be in and only a small amount of men will ever have this happen to then. I'm not going to say what happen but after this I stoped house partys and i got very depressed. I ended up drinking like 1 or 2 beers wile watch the Fotty (AFL) on a firday night or saturday night but after my perants i'd have maybe 1 or 2…. maybe 3 ok more like 10 more after they when't to bed and well i'm really drunk after 2 beers so yer not very good for a young 15/16 year old and then one drunk night i fucked up really really really bad. I remeber the next day reading what i said to one of my best friends. I started with say "hey lets fuck" she thought it was just a joke and said no i keep going on and she knew i was drunk so she wasn't to mad about it. Then the Drepression kicked in and I asked her to kill me and i'd kill her. She had depression as well and it hurt her alot 2 weeks of hell knowing that i had hurt her she forgave me. Still all most 3 mouths later i feel so bad about this and it will all ways be there not as strong as it was at first but it will be there. At this point my main Youtube had hit 1,000 views and I was like so happy and i think that really helped me get past that. But now i know that i should not get drunk i can drink but not get drunk BUT as i say all the time take you shitty past and make an awesome future!! 😛
Drink because you want to. Drink with people you trust. Drink at least 1 glass of water before you go to sleep after you have been drinking. If someone says they are not drinking/don't drink respect that and let everyone have a good time.
Do you on ocassion have a job or is that beneath a London socialite?
I think there's nothing wrong with drinking alcohol as long as you are responsible about it and have a friend looking out for you in case you do slip up. I've played drinking games and decided to stop drinking because I don't want to overdo it and no-one has ever had a major problem with it. I think if you're friends do have a problem with you not wanting to binge-drink or drink at all then they're not really being good friends at all.
I've never know anyone, other than my sister, who names amaretto among their favourite drinks. You should totally try a battenberg. 50ml bailleys and 25ml disaronno. It tastes surprisingly similar to the cake, with the added bonus of tipsyness fun.
13? Bit of a late starter! 🙂 Alcohol has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Glass of wine with a meal, half of cider at the social club, a sherry to see in the new year, pint of mild in the restaurant etc. I think that's why by the time I go to university I could take it or leave it. The people I saw who went really off the rails with alcohol tended to be the ones who hadn't had that long experience of drinking with adult supervision from a younger age. Now they could drink but had never learned how to stop drinking.
I tend to think that so long as it's still fun, honestly still fun, and you're not missing other stuff that is fun or important to drink or as a result of drinking then you're probably OK. If it stops being fun or you're missing work you need to take a look at your priorities and maybe have a health check.
Oh and there's nothing wrong with being a lightweight, just try not to let others pressure you into drinking more than you want to.
Hope that didn't sound too preachy.
Bit of advice? It's always better to drink less of something you do like than more of something you don't like. I'd rather have one bottle of Grey Goose than three bottles of some nasty no name vodka for the same price. Oh and be wary of cheap 'off the back of a lorry' imported drinks, a lot of them are spiked with stuff that will seriously damage your health long term. Finally never try to keep up with with people who have a much shorter journey to their bed than you do, e.g. they have a 5 minute stagger to their hotel room and you have a 20 minute walk followed by two buses and a ten minute walk.
You and your friends, plus me and my friends should hang out and play drinking games… next time we're in the same country that is. And assuming you like drinking games; you didn't mention them in this video!
I think your a good role model. you admit your not perfect, but you try to educate people about ways to avoid making mistakes that you made. Your a friend who likes to keep her friends from making the same mistakes she made!!
allergies to cider are a thing and if your family all have bad reactions to cider just don't. they really mean it when they say it ends badly… really really mean it
I find alcohol can be really great in social settings, but sometimes I think that people can depend on it to the point that it's a bit worrying – I have a friend who doesn't think a party can be fun unless there's alcohol there, and won't even bother going to social occasions without drinks. It seems such a weird way to look at it, and I think it might be disrupting her social life because she doesn't have any confidence to interact with lots of people sober. Is this a common problem? We're both 17, and I don't know if I should be concerned about her.
awesome video, hannah! my question: do you think there's truth in the claim that an earlier onset of drinking in life is more likely to lead to alcoholism in later life?
i only really have anecdotal evidence to go off, but for example, friends of mine who've been drinking since relatively young ages do seem to have varying degrees of dependence on it. i've been drinking since i was 17 and i can easily last a month without a drop of alcohol (say if i'm trying to save money or i'm just up to my neck in unrelated stuff). one friend of mine, however, was allowed sips here and there from childhood and she now struggles with 2-day cleanses.
i sound like i'm being all snooty on my high horse but i promise i'm not. i have my arsenal of faults as much as the next person, but i just think when it comes to alcohol, i harbour more self-restraint than people i know who were introduced to alcohol at an earlier age.
Some people say alcohol's a drug. It's not a drug, it's a drink.
We have a really strange attitude to alcohol if you examine it from the outside. If it was just a small minority of people drinking alcohol regularly I'm sure people would be up in arms to get it banned, news reporters saying "Here we see a group of alcohol abusers, many taking the drug until they vomit and collapse into an almost comatose state." It's hard to get reliable figures but as far as I'm aware a good percentage of domestic violence is a result of alcohol use too.
But IMO there's nothing wrong with drinking alcohol occasionally, most people can control their intake quite well even if they vomit occassionally. I just find it funny that, for example politicians, who make massive decisions for their respective countries, can go to the bar in between debates and have a few whiskeys, but if said politician went outside for a joint or a line of coke there would be a national scandal. I think Reverend Lovejoy on The Simpsons summed it up well, "Once something has been approved by the government, it's no longer immoral."
The voluntary teetotal has a harder time defending themselves, in my experience. If you don't have a religious or medical excuse, you're badgered incessantly to indulge with your peers.
My advice would be: If your body tells you that it isn't good for you, don't drink. I have felt horrible from drinking because I am an asian, take medication that interferes with alcohol and I am a massive lightweight. I have not had many pleasant experiences with alcohol, yet I kept drinking because I thought it was normal to do so. It was only this year that I realised how bad it is for me, my mental and my physical health – I get dizzy, sick, sad, desperate and my body just feels like shit. I've decided to not drink alcohol anymore this new year and I feel so much better. Most people are really cool and accepting about it and I still get to go out and have fun, just without the bad feelings I had before!(yes, it's true, some asians are just intolerant towards alcohol. And that can be quite dangerous, so take care of yourselves, my fellow friends!)
i love her. end of story.
😔I actually miss having a drink especially when out with family & friends☹️. Due to being on Morphine Sulphate Tablets, Oramorph & alsorts of other strong medication tablets of my Doctor & the hospital I can't drink anymore😔😔
Drunk me is a liability.
I started university this year and I never really drank beforehand other than towards the end of summer with my school friends because not being at school anymore we didn't get to socialise as much anymore and missed it. We generally would only have a few drinks but not get very drunk but the last weekend before leaving for uni a few of my friends and I decided to test our limits because we trusted each other and were in a safe environment around people we knew well. I'm really glad I did this before going to uni and getting drunk around brand new people I don't know yet. Now I'm at uni I probably go out once or twice a week and get properly drunk between 1 and 3 times a fortnight. I find drinking lets me feel more comfortable and lets me have a good time dancing whereas when I'm sober I feel horribly awkward dancing so don't really have a good time but I do always try to be responsible and not get too drunk and always make sure I have people to walk home with
I'm a gay male but I wanna marry her
To quote Casablanca "What's your nationality? I'm a drunkard.". Yeah I had to slow down my drinking when I stopped counting glasses and started counting bottles. I'm better now though. I don't think there is anything wrong with a person having a few drinks if you can control it.
One piece of advice I can give: if you're intelligent, once you've been drunk, you don't – I repeat, DON'T – want to be drunk ever again.
Found this channel just about an hour ago, but I already love it! This video is awesome!! All videos that help killing the shaming are more than welcome!
PS. I relate with almost everything you said, especially about the reasons why you like to drink! Only a couple of differences: despite me being kinda of a light weight i don't get drunk THAT easily so it's not cheap at all for me XD, I don't throw up that much but my memories tend do get blurry, and i don't like beer.. 😉 x
Interesting thing about alcoholics – it tends to run in the family…I can remember at least 5 people in my family, including parents, uncles, etc. But it is not an issue with me. My doctor tells me that I "don't have an addictive personality"… I can drink or not drink, it is not a big deal.
On a slightly different vein, I did have a problem briefly with a narcotic pain killer after surgery. I found you can't simply stop taking them – you have to lower the amount by stages. Once The doctor changed the dose, working it down, I was finally able to stop taking it. I didn't enjoy the med in the first place.
Whenever British youtubers talk about the first time they got drunk it's almost always at age 14. Is that a cultural thing? Or just a coincidence?
Ok, u won, I'm down with this channel, so… I'll subscribe
A video on 'tips for when you're that sober friend' would be nice. I am have been the sober one around a particular friend who hasn't quite learned her limits yet (she's only 18 and this has only happened twice) tips on how to talk to them about it afterwards (because sometimes it's not ok and she might not have been ok if I hadn't looked after her in one case) would be good and generally on stuff like how to get them to see sense and go to bed(one you have dragged them home) rather than wanting to watch Harry potter !!!
God damn, this is the first of yours that I've watched, and you are a fuckin' prettyy woman! Great hair and eyes.
I started drinking way too young, my older cousins used to walk me to school when I was 8, so they used to steal cans of bear & put it in my bag, I used to re-steal some of those cans back from them.I've always looked a bit older than I am, when I was 13 I could get served in a pub, when I was 15 I used to hang around with some of the older lads & I could get into clubs with themMy mum let me drink in the house from 13 because it was obvious I was going to do it if I wanted to & it made more sense for me to drink at home than on a random park.When I was 18 I was unemployed, dropped out college & hanging around with career criminals, at that point I was having 3 spliffs & a bottle of Vodka for breakfast until the owner of the recording studio I used to use told in me in no uncertain terms unless I got my shit together not only was I banned he was going to delete everything I'd ever worked on at that studio.I'm 25 now, I only drink when I'm with company & sometimes go 2 or 3 months at a time without drinking, although because I'm from Yorkshire I have got the image of "Northern pisshead" with my mates so when I do drink with them I end up getting slaughtered.
Lol you're pretty much a dream come true for a lot of guys. I beautiful lady who loves beer is just such an awesome thing
I sometimes sipped alcoholic drinks but never got drunk. But here's the thing, a month from now, my whole classroom want to meet up in a beach for like fun activities and bbq which is very common in my country, except – there will be drinks. And it's not a peer pressure sort of thing, but I do want to drink.I just don't know how to. Do I just drink beer? Or is beer too strong? And if so, how many beers should I drink to not get completely drunk, but just more "free"? And how do I know if I drank too much or I shouldn't drink more? Do I drink something else? And if its alcohol percent is higher, should I mix it with something, like a juice or something? I just dunno about how I should drink?Any advice, anyone? I'm 16 btw, and please don't tell me about the dangers of underage drinking bc it's legal in many countries to drink at my age, so… Yeah, I could use some advice lol
I think I black out everytime I drink, whoops🍹
I enjoy a cheeky drink when I'm out because I can get anxious in big crowds some times and it calms me a bit. That said, every time i come home after a night out I eat burnt toast and chug water and I'm generally grand in the morning 🎉
Every time you drink and have sex you are indulging in rape. So sayeth fembots.
I know it would never happen, but I absolutely would love to go on a night out with you! You are a lovely human, and I've agreed with literaly everything said in this video. Wonderful job x
I could (but don't) have a beer every day, but for me it's one beer (maybe two on a weekend evening) and I usually drink 2% stuff anyway. I find it's relaxing and pleasant, although counter productive when I want to create something (blogs/videos etc). When I go out I may have more to do, but still it's rare that I have more than 4 or 5 drinks in a night, when I was younger (19/20) I would go out and drink more, but I've found as time goes on a quiet night in with a drink or two is as pleasant (even more pleasant) than all the effort to go out! 🙂
We like to drink with Hannah because Hannah is our mate!
I got drunk for the first time when i was 13 at my cusins 18th birthday…
So……when your 3 years old you don't know any better to think that on your moms nightstand there is clear liquid with a mint leaf in it little me thought what could go wrong! I chugged it can't remember what happen….True Story
aw, much love Hannah! 😀 – ups from new zealand! yeaaa 😀
The first time I got drunk was in France on a school exchange I went to a French party with my best friend I was 14 and it was the day before my birthday i just loathed and Danes with my best friend, then passed out in my exchange students mums car good times
All my friends drink (15/16) and I hate it. It gives me anxiety even at the mention of alcohol. I feel like they all think I'm lame because I don't want to drink and I make excuses to not go to parties just because of the anxiety it gives and then I feel left out. I don't hate alcohol itself, I've tried alcoholic drinks and like a fair few, I just don't see why everyone's so keen to grown up so fast, because we've got a lifetime to try new things (don't come at me with "what if you die tomorrow" bc if you're on your deathbed and your more concerned about not getting drunk you need to sort out your priorities). Also, the idea of a drink making me do thing I wouldn't normally do and forget things etc. is quite scary.
I used to judge people my age (15/16) for drinking underage because I thought they only wanted to act "grown-up" and rebellious. I started drinking an ocasional Summersby or stuff with a low amount of alchool just to see how it felt like and then I moved to other things like flauvored vodkas and some shots. I've never been drunk, but, as someone quite insecure and anxious, I do like that I feel more confident and relaxed when I drink. I've had people call me a goody two shoes for not drinking and people judging me for doing it. Honestly, I'm as long as I'm with my friends (some of them get drunk, some don't drink at all), because I know I'm having a good time, with or without alchool. Drinking has up and downsides, and people react differently to it, just don't judge and respect their choices and everything's okay. 🙂
I get very horny when I'm drunk!
I personally (16) never had bad experience with alcohol such as memory lost or blacking out because I can drink quite a lot before getting drunk. Because of that I already got in the position of stoping people form overdoing it quite a few times and I hope I can continue that and get others to do the same when they see others drinking too much
I'm the opposite; I've never vomited from alcohol but I always always get memory loss
I started drinking when I was about 14, out of peer pressure. I absolutely hated it, mostly because I didn't feel safe, and I told myself that I would never drink again. Now I'm 18, I'm in a new school with new (and better) friends, and I love it! I'm still not a fan of going out, but I love house parties where I can just get drunk and dance and laugh with my friends!
My dad is a sober alcoholic most of the time I saw him when he was younger he was drunk it got to a point where my mum had anxiety and depression cos of it and me and my sister went to sleep hearing their arguments my dad got admitted into the NHS, so did my mum after fainting me and my sister would have been taken away from our parents if some really close family friends didn't come and let us stay the night at their house. The NHS did nothing neither did a religious course( my parents and most of my family are Hindu) my dad went to aa meetings and that helped I saw him more often he was less stressed he found a better job (he started a lot of proper heavy drinking because of his old job) and he told me that he now has peace of mind (the most important thing in life to him) if any of you have drinking problems I really recommend going to an AA meeting from what I know they really help Thank you to all the people who read to the end😊a 12 year old
Tits look great, Han'! 👌🏽👌🏽
There is only one alcoholic drink in this world that I like but apart from that, I don't drink, more because I don't like the taste and I get hungover really easily but I rarely crave a drink
this cleared up a lot
20 October, 2015? Why am I just receiving this now?
Well to be completely truthful i go out drinking with friends 2-3 time a month, but the problem occurs when i spend like £200 on one night which leeds to 9 times out of 10 me blacking out and forgetting what happened or how i got home still great fun and i love it but everyone seems to judge me for it.
everyone's getting really serious and some very judgy in the comments and I'm just here like WE LIKE TO DRINK WITH HANNAH COS HANNAH IS OUR MATE
JAGERBOMBS are the BEST
I started drinking only about a year ago. (I'm currently 19, almost 20) Since then I have had memory loss many times, gotten a concussion, and gone to the ER (on a different occasion than the concussion). I've made excuses to never be the DD because it's hard for me to be around drunk people and alcohol and not get drunk myself, and when I set limits for myself, they never work because I don't think I'm drunk when I am. I'm also on Zoloft, and I think that may be where much of this stems from. That and just being a depression ridden person looking for an escape. I'm currently a week sober and that may not sound like much but I'm really trying. Don't drink on antidepressants, kids. Just don't.
Recently after pre-drinks have worn off and I start getting drinks from the bar, I don't even get properly drunk, I just get hyper off the redbull i've previously mixed with the Jägerbombs at pre-drinks and the redbull i've brought with my Jäger or Vodka and tbh I still have had fun and no hangover the morning after! Brilliant!
I've only been legal for a month and a half but the idea of actually being drunk hasn't appealed to me in years.A couple of times a month when I'm out with friends (more often than not when it's a special occasion and we aren't just chilling) I'll have a couple of drinks, but that's it.I don't like the idea of drinking alone, and while it can be fun to be tipsy/a bit drunk with friends I don't like to do it very often.
what is the UK drinking age ? in the USA its 21
HANNAH I LOVE YOU 🙂 you're so fun, honest, confident and understanding. xoxo
Watching this makes me think I have an alcohol problem.
drinking calms me down, I'm usually way too hyper. being a hyper 35 year old puts a lot of people off, but I don't need a lot of people just my group of amazing friends 🙂 I didn't have my first drink until I was 19, the legal age was 18 in my province, I love drinking. 😀
Ive been drinking since I was like 13, Ive done some stupid things 😂
drinking professional here, former fratbro, pong champ, quarters champ, 40oz beer bong champ, dizzy bat champ, flip cup champ, x2 true blackouts, near death hangovers, but the positives outweight the negative. I would so do drunk advice with you Hannah. 💃
You have rather large boobs. Good job.
good lord i wish i knew you in person, your breasts are fantastic
can i just say OML I LOVE YOUR BOOBS!
I legitimately cannot drink, the taste of alcohol has always made me feel sick after just like a sip of it ever since I was a kid. thought it would change as I got older (I'm 22) but it just tastes completely sour and rotten to me it's gross
sober! see! i saw. gOOd
i had my first drink at the age of 25 i am 32 now and i drink every now and then
whiskey and some juice is the best mixer although I am 16 lol 🙂
This young man from new york needs your advice!I don't know what to dohttps://youtu.be/sIA8xtd5GHA
I started drinking a bit at 19, while in college. I, like you, only tend to throw up after having too many, never black out. My last winter finals week of college, I had my first experience with Jell-O shots…and I got alcohol poisoning. 😱 So now I have to be super careful, because that was AWFUL. But I still try to drink and enjoy myself.
I'll hold your hair when you get sick from drinking too much 😉
I'm a recovering alcoholic I still drink I just don't get drunk anymore, no one should drink to get drunk especially if its to help forget and shit since I was 14 my plan was to drink until I die from it…I just smoke weed now
Hey Hannah, yup, I checked you out… not dead yet 😀 As for Alcohol… just watch the long term 30 – 40 years down the road… though of course by then they will be doing liver transplants of organs made with your own stem cells, so maybe I should eat, DRINK, and be carry on up the ABV% 😀 I make my own, (nothing distilled of course) but I do make beer, wine, wineish, and Meads… sadly I don't have a drinking partner or friends.. that's something to be careful about… lost all my good friends through marriage… now I'm old and disabled so the only time I get really tipsy is when I get depressed, and I end up on YouTube listening to German, Slavic, and Russian folk songs and marches, and posting them to Facebook… Think you are great, and like your friends and the topics and interactions…. one of the bright spots in my daily grind.. hmmmm need a coffee… cheers x
I love you, Hannah. I was a alcoholic for many, I have been for three years now.
to alcohol – cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems
I feel like I get vilified for not drinking alcohol that much. I joined in with the whole drinking culture the first time I went to uni. I really enjoyed it but after I while I noticed I reacted badly. Not with hangovers but I got really bad panic attacks during or after drinking as alcohol consumption can trigger these kind of attacks. Now, I get the feeling people think I’m a bit of a loser because I don’t normally want to join in. Especially as I live in a society where getting drunk at my age is almost expected. I really hate it…
I got drunk once and it was the worst experience i've ever had. It was my first time being drunk and i had so much vodka, tequila and beer and the taste was bad tbh I only did it to get drunk and also it just felt like I was dreaming and I had no control over myself and my awareness of what was around me was hardly there and wow I never want to get drunk again hHhh
Cleavage is looking great btw 🙂
How does alcohol affect your UC?
I don't drink at all. I don't have some problematic history with alcohol, I just don't like it. I don't care if others drink, you do what you want, but it's just not for me.
The first time I was drunk was on my dads birthday, I had about six beers and I didn’t puke but I don’t remember much about the night
I'm a lightweight too!
"Sue me" 2 seconds later realizes what she said "dont sue me" can we PLZ get that on a shirt 🤣🤣🤣🤣😂
I drunk a loko something last night and I don't remember much but I got an upset stomach and my head hurts. I am also a light weight and it was my 2nd time drinking.
I drink very little, like maybe once a month or even less, and when I do I only get one or two drinks max, like a Bacardi and diet coke or G&T, but it's just so calorific and I'm super lightweight
