18th birthday wishes can be funny or serious — or both. But they should never be clichéd in any way. The average 18 year old has seen and heard it all, so "corny" is out of the question.

When people turn 18 (in many countries), they legally become adults with grown-up privileges, like drinking alcohol, voting and driving.
So, this birthday is an opportunity to be funny or serious about age-related milestones.
If the birthday boy or girl can take a joke,
poke fun at their drinking with your 18th birthday wishes. If they’re serious, gently encourage
them to grow up. Can't decide? Get started with the verses below!
Happy 18th birthday! Welcome to the world of adults. It's a crazy world, full of sinners and saints. You'll fit right in.
At 18, when it's okay to think more about yourself, you think only of others. You are already an old soul. You're definitely ready to be an adult. Happy birthday!
Happy 18th birthday! You’re an adult now. Now
you can do everything legally you've been illegally doing since you were a kid.
Is your 18th birthday everything you imagined? No? Don't worry, things only get worse...until you hit 30, when you want to be 18 again! Happy birthday!
A wonderful, challenging, intriguing time of
your life begins at 18. I only have one piece of advice for you: be yourself
because you have so much to offer the world of adults. Happy 18th birthday!
Welcome to womanhood. Yes, I know I said the same thing when you turned 12. This time I mean it. Happy 18th birthday!

This is one of my top picks because it humorously proves that the more things change, the more they stay the same, even when the change is as big as entering adulthood. ◄ Read less
Your 18th birthday is a special occasion — it’s when you get to celebrate your leap into adulthood. You know what that means, right? Let’s party until we puke! Happy 18th birthday!
Happy 18th! You finally know what it feels like
to be “legal.” It’s just like before, except you can now buy beer with an ID that actually has your photo on it.
The word “teen” may be attached to the end of
your age but that doesn't mean you’re still a teenager. At 18, you’re a grownup.
It’s time to take on grownup things. Besides, you’re more than ready. Happy
Happy 18th birthday! You must now act like an adult: You should not start voting (even though you can now legally vote) and should begin drinking (even if you can’t drink legally until you’re 21).
