For me life at turning 18 was not particularly pleasant. I was doing a job I didn't like and I'd been ill for four years which deprived me of the normal life young people have at that age. Girls didn't fancy me. What made matters worse was the prospect of being drafted the following year because I was considered fit enough to serve in the army. Military service in communist regimes is like a prison sentence. It can't be compared to that in free societies. So three more depressing years to go before things improved at the age of 21.
