[CHAT] We like to party

Moderator @FItzChivalry writes:

Partying is a word that gets most people excited at the first thought of it. The idea of partying is pretty awesome. Get a bunch of mates, music, a few drinks and dance the night away. I’ve spent many years doing just that, and I’ve had some awesome nights because of it, made a lot of friends and a lot of memories. But partying does have its dark side.



I remember my first real house party, when we were all about 16 years old. I was the only one who really had an older brother, and he was “cool” enough to buy alcohol for the night. My best friend’s mum had even gone away for the weekend so we had a free house. The invites went out, and the party was gonna be awesome. It was like a scene out of one of those American college movies where they are running around the school throwing flyers at people. A few hours into the party it was clear that this definitely was going to be the best party ever. However things very quickly soured.

Unbeknownst to the organizers, one girl had brought herself a bottle of pretty hard liquor and decided it would be a great idea to polish it off herself. Next thing you know she’s in hospital, mums were called, tears were shed and it was definitely not the party to end all parties. That was our first taste of how quickly things could head south (the girl was fine in the end, but it was still a bit shock for us all).



So - partying can be awesome, and the majority of the time it is, but young people, alcohol and maybe even drugs is the perfect combination for problems. It happens from time to time. So how do we still have a good time without being too irresponsible about it?

I havent been partying in ages... dam uni!!

However usually for me a night out includes a few wines delicious food and some dancing!! 

Re: [CHAT] We like to party

Hello all and welcome! Very excited to have this opportunity to discuss this issue with you all.

My typical night out has changed a fair amount over the last few years I guess, when I was a bit younger a typical night out would always involve clubbing, as I used to love nothing more than dancing the night away in a night club til the early hours of the morning! Now that I'm a bit older though a night out for me is a great way to meet people and be a bit more social, so I tend to avoid the deafening music of night clubs and prefer to have a few drinks at a mate's house and head to a pub or a bar instead, anywhere you can be social really!

Hey all! Looking forward to tonight's GR session Smiley Happy

I guess before I turned 18, partying was going to house parties, whether I knew who was holding them or not! Drinking, loud music, becoming 'best friends' with people, games, ridiculous and often stupid decisions, going to more parties throughout the night, etc, etc.


Now that I'm over 18, 'partying' looks like having pre's at someone's house, then going out on the town and spending way too much money on alcohol. Waking up the next morning feeling sick after having consumed greasy food at 3am, with your feet killing you from the shoes you wore.

I much prefer just chilling out at someone's house and having a couple of drinks. My days of heavy partying seem to be long gone!

@EloiseRose  I'm in the same boat as a student there! So I guess I have to add that a typical night usually involves the cheapest option being on the student budget hehehe

Re: [CHAT] We like to party

Hello everybody

I'm not really sure how to describe this, usually having some friends over for a few drinks then hit the town a bit later on. I only have that few friends I go out with, they are the only ones I trust to rescue me when I'm drunk.

For me partying is a group of friends just hanging out and having a good time, this could mean having a cheeky boogie at a club or having a laugh over dinner and drinks at a restuarant/bar. My typical night out would include lots of laughs, a few bevs and a lot of dancing Smiley Tongue
