    Congrats.

    Does anything special happen at 18 in Sweden? In the US, 18 year olds get to vote.

    I get to vote and I can get a driving license, I´m also allowed to drink alcohol but I´m not allowed to buy anything stronger then beer unless I´m at a bar or resturant.

    It´s kinda funny actually, I`m old enough to decide things for the country but not old enough to buy alcohol. But I think the law is fair and should be there.

    And yes, I am allowed to smoke not that I want to. It´s also pretty cool, the government has passed some laws or shit that make the packs of ciggaretes have large warning signs.

    Things like "Smoking Kills" in large black letters on white background covereing half of the package. There are differnet texts so it´s kinda lika Pokemon for smokers. Gotta catch em all.

    You're not an adult until you're mature, and maturity comes at different times for different people.

    A good age is 21. But a lot of people are still immature at 21.

    I'm 18 as well but I don't consider myself an adult. I base it on maturity which comes through experience.

    National survey said people aren't considered an adult until 26. It's about the age where many are working full time, married, and have or are trying to have kids.

    In this day and age, I agree. Although congratulations to kraahl on legally becoming an adult.

    I do think I am old enough to do what I´m now allowed to do, still I don´t consider myslef an adult. The day I get a full-time job and don´t live at home anymore that´s the day I am an adult.

    Bingo ;)

    when you can support yourself and are no longer living off your parents, you are officially an adult :D
