Except, of course, for people under the age of 18, who are deemed incapable of understanding the issues. You can be old enough to kill yourself with drink, but not old enough to put a cross on a piece of paper.

oh - cigarrettes then...
Actually, you can't buy drink if you're under 18, and you can't drink in public places, but you *can* drink (from 13, iirc). I can't recall the exact laws, and they're rather complicated, but that's the gist anyway...

Children can drink from the age of 5 under supervision of parents and can also drink in pubs and restaurants as part of a meal from 14 onwards (depending upon the type of drink)
