Check Out These 3 Ways To Deal With Peer Pressure
Sometimes saying no isn’t as hard as you think.
Take control of your body – it’s your body that you may be damaging, and your body that will have to deal with the consequences.
1. If you don’t want to drink alcohol - don’t. Just say ‘no’ – real friends will accept and respect your decision

3. Use a decoy – have a soft drink already in your hand
