    You can party even as an adult, if you're able to take care of your other responsibilities, and why wouldn't you? My only problem is the social expectancy to party hard until you marry, and the expectancy to stop partying afterwards.

    My personal experience is that, at my age, people expect you to get drunk on a regular basis (preferably weekly), and if you don't, they tend to assume there's something wrong, e.g. you're boring, unhealthy, unattractive or simply tense. If neither of this is true, they get confused. The most simple explanation (some need more partying, others need less) seems to elude them, or is it just me? I may be projecting.

    nah we just assume your bunged and need unbunging, though some people who drink regularly are also bunged, so i guess you can not be bunged and not drink, just haven't met anyone like that.

    I think it's fine to go out and have a good time. But past college age, if you're still getting hammered for the sake of getting hammered several times a week, it seems a little immature. If you're pushing 40 and still feeling the need to party like a rock star on a regular basis, it is a little sad. Unless you are actually a rock star. Rock stars get a pass.
