When I was 18, I was an adult as all of the requirements were allowed for someone 18 (back then). I never had an issue with booze. My parents were not heavy drinkers. They drank socially, never to excess and had wine on the Jewish holidays and Friday nights. I grew up with full access to the liquor cabinet and my parents never needed to lock it or hide anything. My sister also never had a problem. We grew up with alcohol readily available. I think it's the parents that say no and try to make alcohol out to be a bad thing that gets kids wanting it.
