Wait... you're 18 and your parents can still ground you?
Dude. Say that although you are 18, you are mentally mature enough to handle alcohol responsibly (despite what they may think :P). Bring up the fact that experience with something from a young age will allow them to be more responsible with it in the future. You can't learn anything if you never go wrong. A child who never falls and hurts himself will never learn that he will get hurt doing reckless things. Frenchies, although you may hate them, are brought up drinking alcohol from a young age. The French don't have an underage drinking problem, purely because they don't see it as something to be abused, whereas Americans (I'm generalizing here) and the British, among others, do.
