Will drinking/getting drunk when I’m underage affect me when I grow older?

Would getting drunk on one occasion affect my brain development or anything like that? I’m fourteen and I wasn’t sure whether anything bad would happen from it.

    No. One time drinking will not affect your brain in any noticeable way - UNLESS you drink and insane amount and get alcohol poisoning. Do not do that!!

    Yes even a single drinking session will cause both brain and liver damage which is Extremely Harmful!

    Underage drinking will have a detrimental effect on your future. If you do it once you will do it again, and you will eventually get in trouble with the law. Potential employers do not look favorably on an arrest record.

    Getting drunk causes brain damage no matter how old you are. Starting early, the cumulative brain damage when you are older will be significant.

    You are also starting bad habits very early.

    Yes. Drinking when the brain is forming can cause brain damage. You will end up the dumb adult that can't think or remember as well as everyone else.

    The earlier you start, the more likely you are to get addicted and become an alcoholic. Also, alcohol kills brain cells, and your brain is still developing. At 14, it's not a good idea.

    Missing out is the worst thing that could happen. I use to be a drunk before God changed me 

    ! Corinthians 6

    9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    11And such were some of you:

    Galatians 5

    19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

    20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

    21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
