Avoiding Peer Pressure

What to do when someone is asking me to do drugs?

  1. Just say “No”. It’s really that simple. You don’t need to give a reason. Just tell them NO
  2. Understand what is happening. (Someone is asking you to use alcohol or other drugs.) Realize that this is serious.
  3. Remind yourself WHY you should stay clean. (It’s illegal and it can kill you.)
  4. Say, I don’t do that stuff. It takes courage to do what’s right. Give a reason only if you want to.
  5. Offer another choice. Use this step if the person offering you a drink or other drug is someone you want to keep as a friend. If your friend doesn’t respect your decision they are not a friend, then use step 5.
  6. Leave! There are some friends you may have to give up.
