To drink... or to drink a lot? That is the question!
GO FOR IT.... Unless of course you are not of legal age... then don't go for it :P
As in the majority of countries, the minimum age in New Zealand is 18.
Are you drinking to enhance your joy, or drinking to avoid some misery? If the former, go for it. If the latter, you'll be hungover and miserable tomorrow.

So many qualifications!
You're drinking to give yourself lowered sexual permissions... that's fine too.
I still find this ambiguous... was drink possibly involved? :)
People drink a little just to say "Wow, not sure I would have slept with that guy if I weren't drinking..." even when they weren't really majorly drunk, just need to built up a quick scapegoat to "bad" decisions they want to make.
If you experience any regret (physical or emotional) following a drinking episode, you have consumed too much.
