What I'm really thinking ... about alcohol 

It's very hard not to drink alcohol when you're 15. Especially in Ireland, I mean. It's like everyone else is drinking or thinking about drinking or has drunk, and so not drinking marks you out. Some people think I'm a total loser because I haven't drunk alcohol yet. And it's not true that I haven't ever drunk alcohol: I've tasted beer and wine at home, just a sip from my Dad. He let me try whiskey one night. My mouth and throat felt like they were on fire.
