just wondering at what age did people stop partying and going out to get laid and get drunk?

well i've never really been the type to party all the time but there definitely was a time when i loved going out, drinking, smoking, and not having sex with strangers but just meeting a lot of guys and always talking to at least 5 guys at a time i just didn't want anything serious, but that phase is over now. it only lasted for like 3 years when i was in high school. it may seem like i was too young to be doing anything fun but i used drink a lott, smoke, and get chased by cops at least ones a month because i was always up to something. had a little business too. but i got tired and bored of that life. i still occasionally go out and get super drunk but thats not what my life is all about. that kind of lifestyle just doesn't interest me anymore.1

Going out to get drunk? 17. After I got wasted a few times in high school, I didn't feel like actively looking to ruin my night or time somewhere.
Going out to get laid? Somewhere in college. I don't know about the rest of the people, but college was a turning point for me. In high school, girls were younger, more reserved, and more uncomfortable. In college, girls sort of started discovering themselves, their personality, and who they are as people. When it came to that aspect of their life, the vast majority didn't really carry the "high school mentality" into college.
Going from high school to college, women were just people. Instead of a penis, they had a vagina. Instead of wanting external stimulation, they wanted internal and external stimulation. Instead of wanting someone soft, small, and feminine, they wanted someone hard, built/fit, and masculine. They were just as much animals as men were. When the "professional" or "socially acceptable" persona went away, and they were in private (or in semi-private), outside of the light of social judgment, they wanted it just as much (if not more) than guys.
One thing I remember thinking is, "Holy crap, this is how girls would feel in high school." In fact, I'm sure it wasn't anywhere near as bad, but it was still annoying. Sometimes, you just wanted to lightly socialize, or just keep things friendly. Then, when you committed this "sin" of just "not being sexually interested in her," all hell would break loose.
The "urge" to go out with the purpose of getting laid was no longer there. The "appeal" of going out for the purpose of getting laid was no longer there. It was way easier and cheaper to get laid by no going out to an environment where people are packed together, with ear-bleeding noise, posing, and full of alcohol and other dangers. It was both a waste of time and money.
So, for me, somewhere around 18-19, I stopped going out to places for the purpose of "getting laid."
Once I was an accountant, and then again, when I was in law school, and then again, when I was an attorney, that kind of conduct (and thought) was "unprofessional." So, for better or for worse, that interest went away relatively early, and it's never really come back over the years.1
